There are regular hands-on animal activities, and each day there is a spectacular pig racing event, even try your hand at milking a cow! At Park Hall the kids can play till they’re worn out, try out the two massive indoor play barns with a new ‘Demon Drop Slide’ and bouncy castles. Discover the great outdoors where there are adventure courses, woodland walks and a picturesque lake. Kids can even ‘learn to drive’ in electric cars or landrovers. If you love science checkout the Science Illusion Zone. There’s a Victorian School, Iron Age Roundhouse and Welsh Guards Museum too. A great day out for all the family. « less

We have just returned from Park Hall farm with our two granddaughters. There is so much to see and do. Among the favourites was the maize maze, tractor rides, feeding the lambs and the pig racing. My favourite place was the room with all the optical illusions. There is a craft area, a quiet area with books,displays and exhibitions. My... More

There's enough to do and see for children up to about 12. Plenty of indoor activities for horrible days, but with wellies and waterproofs who cares?

Very good play areas, liked that they were separated by ages which meant my little ones weren't getting jumped on and my big ones could have something more challenging. Enjoyed the wander in the maize, rather simple maze but an adventure for a 3 year old! Pig racing was the biggest hit of the day though!

This time table tells you what's on throughout the day, eg tractor rides, pig racing, meeting /feeding animals. The things are repeated so if you miss one event, you can... More

Reasonably priced fun day out. We went as a family of 4. A 2 year old and 5 year old. It cost £31. They really enjoyed it. We bottle fed lambs, watched a pig race and had a tractor ride. They were different activities to do at different times of the day, like grooming pony's or milking cows. We walked... More

Decided to take our two young girls for a day out here as we were staying in the area. Think we payed around £30 for a family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) which we thought was a little expensive considering they cost for children and adults is the same. Inside there is loads to see and do. The activities... More

We visited the farm with two grandchildren age 8 and 5. We found plenty to keep all of us amused for more than 4 hours. We did not get round all of the park as we had run out of time. I think it would be worth a second visit to see the rest. There is a timetable of daily... More
