The session started off with two simple Christmas games for the kiddos. I was a little apprehensive that the games would be too difficult for my... More

I am a child minder and have been visiting Farmer Gow's for seven years, the season tickets are extremely good value for money especially as there is never a charge for a child under 3 years of age. I visited this week and had a very tasty lunch with a lovely fresh salad and the kids always love the sandwiches.... More

Easy to find, good parking, well organised and friendly staff who made an effort to make you welcome. We booked online and that was easy to do. The weather was against us during our visit but we still managed to enjoy ourselves. Our grandson loved the animals especially the turkey chicks and collecting the eggs. The afternoon feeding session was... More

She did the treasure hunt and played on the hay bales. All in . All a fun day for little ones. Staff... More

We went to a children's party at Farmer Vows. It was very well organised. The tractor ride was enjoyed by all as we got to feed the pigs. The best bit for us was when we were back in the farm feeding the pigs, goats and sheep. Most of the children loved it and we will be going back again.
