We had a Gr8 afternoon enjoying the Sussex countryside and looking at the sheep and their lambs. We also visited the cattle shed, enjoyed hot drinks in the café and visited the superb old church which has got to be one of the most beautiful churches anywhere in the world. To make the visit more interesting to visitors I would... More

Went to Coombes over the bank holiday weekend. We were lucky to see 3 lambs being born and even enjoyed a tractor ride. The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves and would visit again!

It's a lot of fun and it's great to see the lambs and the calves :) I think some people forget that it is a working farm not some sort of adventure farm/park thing, so bring your wellies! Very enjoyable experience for those who don't mind a bit of mud :) Furthermore the staff were very polite and helpful!

Amazing time here seeing all the animals and a great ride around all the fields. The barn is amazing as well and great to book out for parties (weddings etc). Great experience for everyone of all ages

A friend and I visited the farm today with our children, and we were so excited to be going. We were lucky enough to see a couple of lambs born, but also we saw some things that I would never want any children to see ever again. The staff seemed totally uncaring and unaware of sheep with prolapses and one... More

We are all very caring and members of our family are on duty 24 hours a day, we also have Vet students learning, most are very keen and quick to learn and... More

We visit here very year and my 2 young daughters always find it an enjoyable experience, watching lambs being born, holding and feeding them. We make a whole day of it, take a picnic and eat on the field near the car park or in the barn if weather not too good. The tractor ride is fun and about 1/2... More

Little to see except some bare and dreary downland and sheep and cattle which can be seen on a walk anywhere nearby rather than via an overcrowded tractor pulled trailer. Unfriendly staff.The whole enterprise seems a rather cynical money making operation.. Overall a very disappointing experience best avoided.
