The farm features one of the biggest and best equipped playgrounds in the north of England and the largest tube maze in Europe. The farm shop is famous for home produced beef, pork, lamb and a huge variety of sausages. The tearoom serves delicious home cooked food.

Went with my 3 year old and 28 other children in his class. Can honestly say that all the children enjoyed it and the facilities for the children are excellent. We had a fab picnic on a huge grassy field where they could all run about and be safe. The farm is busy but lots to see, my son loved... More

We visited this morning with my three year old Godson . We were there about ten minutes before it opened but the friendly girl on reception said we could go in. It was £21 which I thought was a bit pricey. The playground areas were fantastic. Clean and safe. Loved looking at the animals. Petted at a rabbit. Loved the... More

Took my 4 year old grandson on a Friday. Parking, as stated, £3 and a walk of 2 mins to the farm. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The animal information was good and the animals, well, looked happy enough. The playground and the kids maze were brilliant and it was hard to persuade him to leave here!. Went for... More

Visited here for the first time in years with my niece and nephew. It's a lovely farm with lots of barns of animals and things to do for the children. Great playground that has hours of fun for the children. Kids especially enjoyed the sheep racing !

Never have I seen a farm/playground with so many rules. No food or drink allowed inside so forget the idea of a ice cream while the kids play. No touching animals if you are under 6?!?! The cow milking finished early, the ferret and sheep racing started early - end result being my kids didn't get to see any of... More

We spent an afternoon here last Saturday with our two grandchildren and we all really enjoyed it! The animal quarters had been updated since we were last there and we couldn't get as close to the animals as we did before but that didn't really bother us! After petting the rabbits, there were no facilities nearby for the children to... More

It's a good day out with children. The deli looks amazing. Cafe over stretched . My advise is take a picnic and eat down by the river past the hall it's more exciting and lots cheaper.

The farm is great for kids to see different animals up close, we have been a few times and the kids love it. There are also lots of play areas for kids to let off a bit of steam. The farm shop has a nice selection of meats and other foods too, perfect for Sunday dinner!! Will be going again... More
