Had a good day out, we went with our 3 year old Grandson and 7 year old Nephew, both had a really good day, but our Nephew did get a little bored with what was on offer for his age group. The farm is very good value for money as everything is included (with a couple of exceptions). The only... More

Had a great time children loved it, loads to do and see. Would defiantly return. Not to much for older kids but hey it's a farm not a theme park.so on that note I'll give 5 stars.

We went with our four year old and 18 months old twins. They all thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the four year. She keeps asking when we can go back. She went on all the rides and the bouncy farm. We gave the bouncy slides a miss as there were a lot of older children clambouring up the climbing ropes. The... More

Animals, rides, slides, sandpits, trampolines, with an indoor play area too and lots of places for the adults to sit and relax whilst the kids play!! Would really recommend for a... More

I haven't been to old macdonalds farm for about 6 years, back then I remember it to be quote fun for children. Saw the groupon offer and visited with my family, 4 children under 8. We brought a bag of food each which was a waste because like before and like other farms you were able to feed animals by... More

Not a lot of animals? Well, if you disregard the Llamas, Alpacas, Wallabies, Meerkat family, Otters, Red Deer, Reindeer, Cattle, Sheep, Goats, Pigs, Chipmunks, Chinchillas, tortoises, guinea pigs, rabbits, kune kunes, micros, geese, chickens, ducks, and of course cats, there are just the parrots, cockatoos, snowies, European eagles, barn owls and tawny owls, but other than that, not many really!...

Visited for son's 3rd birthday yesterday. Park is more of a theme park than a farm as such and more emphasis on 'rides' and activities than the animals. Felt a bit sorry for the animals we did see and the reindeers in particular didn't appear to be that happy, simply pacing after each other up and down their pen (right... More

Thanks for the review but puzzled by your concerns about the reindeer who are in a natural woodland and absolutely thriving. Of course at this time of year they are moulting but they are in first class condition as are all our animals and checked by our experienced vet at least weekly. As for the gels, please read the signs... More

Not the best attraction to visit. Glad I only paid a woucher voucher. Everything is tired and a bit worn out. Best of all one of the park attendants pushed my 3 year old daughter onto the trampolines. When confronted became very dismissive and quite agitated. Very disappointed in the overall experience

This shows that whatever our staff do they cannot win! Some people complain our staff do not intervene on the attractions but when this staff member did, to save your child from accidentally getting hurt, you think he pushed them! He stopped a collision but get in touch and we will invite you back as our guests for the full... More

Well, where do I start?!! There were no alcohol gel, where you pet the animals at 11am (considering they open at 10) when we arrived and still none when we left at 2pm. The animals look like they are not looked after, the horse on the entrance looks like it needs to be seen by a vet. The rabbits look... More

Under staffed some animals looking very uncared for over priced and 14 year olds allowed to use power tools on site with no supervision. Management could not give a toss !!!
