my wife and i took our 3 year old granddaughter to this rip off on the 2nd July 15. far from impressed. we went round to a few of the animal pens and my granddaughter liked it especially those you could feed. however she also wanted to do the rides. it was about 1115 when we walked round the rides....

Plenty of playgrounds and farm animals plus indoor soft play and some unique rides, enough for children age 11 and under

Visited recently with our grandchildren - what a rip off!! At £15.00 per adult - so total of £30.00 could have seen everything there was to see in half hour! Hardly any animals - lots of the enclosures empty. Were going to take the two little ones on the train but couldn't unless we purchased wristbands for them at an... More

This is a lovely place to visit and we've recommended it to all our friends. Lovely friendly staff. It was nice feeding all the animals and going on the rides. My granddaughter loved it and we will be going again. My granddaughter can't wait. We give it a full 10 out of 10.

Having visited before, I was dismayed when asked to accompany my friends' kids to this farm, whilst she attended an appointment locally. Nothing had changed since my last visit, and I still feel it isn't worth the money, when you compare it with the likes of Hobbledown farm, close to where I am originally from in Epsom. You're better off... More

Thank you for leaving another review. To quote Shakespeare, methinks the reviewer doth protest too much! Our responses are based on reporting that Trip Advisor expressed dismay that so many reviews all over their site are actually false and we share that shock. Do not know how this person knows for certain they are not if a Government Department and... More

My family and I visited for my nephews 2nd birthday, the venue itself is lovely with loads of stuff to do no matter what the weather. My only complaint is the animals don't look very well looked after, there was a cat that had a poorly foot limping about, the reindeer had patchy fur due to stress and the kangaroo... More

We always appreciate people who care about the animals here as much as we do so can reassure you that our farm cats are very well looked after and beloved by us and our visitors, the reindeer are of course moulting at this time of year, their lovely coats coming in time for Christmas, and the Wallaby enclosure was specifically...

Very disappointed on how much the so called farm had changed. I thought it was very expensive and it is now a mini 'fun' park and not the lovely farm I remembered. I would not recommend this and will not be returning.

We went as a family of 5, on a day when there was a Peppa Pig character visiting - so my youngest was looking forward to it. Just getting into the place cost me £72 - and a further £3 for animal feed. Sorry - that's about £25 too much for what amounts to a fairly average farm, with a... More
