We visited last summer in July, it was really busy but we had a nice time so decided to come bk again this time in April with our 2 year old son. It was a lot less busy, almost empty. It seemed like the animals were not properly looked after in the quieter months, they looked dirty and miserable. The... More

I visited today with my children, aged three and five. It was a spur of the moment trip, so we paid full price. Spending £43 for this experience was unbelievable. It's very shabby, especially the soft play area which was dark and dirty. Many of the rides were not operating as, I was told by a very unfriendly male member... More

This place needs money spent on it. The animals are well cared for and easy to see. The rides are good but only half were open and working on a rotary basis. Disappointing if you've paid entrance fee PLUS money for wrist band, then food if you want to feed animals. Plus lots of rides for toddlers that cost an... More

I came to the farm on 8th April accompanied by my children and grandchildren, (ranging from the age of 3 months to 8 years). we were a party of 12 children, two teenagers and 9 adults. I don't know who had a more fun time, the adults or the kids?! The farm was perfect for the age group 1 -... More

Unless you like being entertained by large gaudy fibre glass animals with odd expressions this is no attraction at all! The animals cannot be touched, and most of them are marked as "Dangerous - Do Not Feed!" Since when are sheep dangerous? Half of Wales would be dead by now if that were true. Most of the animals can be... More

We visited 12th April with our friends and their three young children. The farm is lovely, plenty of animals to see and rides for children (and adults) to enjoy. We took our time wandering around the farm and spent well over four hours there. The food from the cafe was nice, hot and reasonably priced. Parking was no problem, we... More

We had a large group of families with lot's of children. The staff were so helpful and easy to deal with. Everyone had a great time. The adults all felt that it was a very relaxing atmosphere.

This place is not as bad as some make it sound! It cost £28 for 2 adults and 2 children which includes all rides & attractions. We took a picnic and there was enough undercover places for us to eat should it have been a rainy day. Luckily it was nice and sunny :-) there is a range of farm... More

We got tickets from Groupon, which made it value for money, I wouldn't have been impressed if we'd paid full price as I think it's too expensive. We were lucky that we had beautiful sunny weather, this definately made our experience better. The animals were lovely and looked well after. The two electronic puppet shows were good fun and the...
