We took our 3yr old son to Old MacDonald's Farm this weekend, for the first time, and although we enjoyed most of the day, unfortunately we will not be returning due to this very frightening 'talking tree'! My son was so scared by it he wouldn't sleep because of his terrifying experience. He is still talking about it, saying how... More

Always a favourite with the children. Staff always helpful and lots for the children to do. Also vouchers are accepted contrary to what some people are saying but as long as you follow the rules. Will definitely go back again.

Great day out with the kids. Used Groupon vouchers as very expensive. Our 4 year old loved the rides all included in the price. Food was average and the ride distracted from the animals but there were a lot to see. Does not warrant the bad reviews but I agree that it's over priced and would not have gone if... More

No two ways about it, festering alpacas, festering owls, and exceptionally festering bunnies.. If they were Lindt gold bunnies, they would be all powdery & inedible by now. Sheep are... More

Decided to take my toddler to the farm today. It looks like it could be a great place but is quiet run down. There is no actual petting area and the only way you can "feed" the animals is by throwing food down a shoot. I would of been better off taking my little girl to our local pets coner... More

Excellent day out, nephew loved seeing all the animals and playing on all activities that where available. Extremely useful and friendly staff, with decent food for the price. Definitely planning on returning with other family members. Great place overall.

We've been here as a family many times before and always have a good time as long as the weather is fine. Loads for the kids to do and you can take your own food along and use the picnic benches provided. Would recommend for all families to visit.
