Under 6 then it's a good few hours out with a good soft play area under cover. There are opportunities to feed a few animals and also to ride a small pony or donkey. There are also radio controlled pirate boats and some large ride on tractors, in fact there is a lot if you are 6 or under. It's... More

Went to farm today even though it's not a big place there is plenty to do. You can feed the lambs and walk them. Feed the alpacas, and guinea pigs. Groom the ponies and they do pony rides. There are children tractors to ride on and play areas. Also indoor play areas too. There is a cafe which is a... More

Had promised our four year old we would go to the children's farm to see the sheep racing and the ponies, so we braved the rain. Very limited selection of animals, and most activities need it to be dry outside. Understandably the pony rides and sheep racing can't happen in very wet weather and they tried to put on alternatives... More

Nearest parking over a mile away, food and drinks overpriced, not a great deal there for the entrance fee (even for kids). On top of entrance fee you have to pay for pony rides. Just seems unloved by staff and owners. Solution Fancies farm on Portland with free entrance.

A beautiful setting with old barn, stone walling and rolling countryside. Perfect under 5s venue. We visited with our 3 yr old grandchild. She loved feeding the guineapig, milking the "cow", playing in the softplay area, the mini tractors and the undercover climbing area. She also played in the straw bales and met the sheep in the field. We enjoyed... More

We visited as we had bought a combined ticket at the Swannery down the road. Left the car there and walked up the lane where we discovered swings in trees. The children loved these. There aren't many animals on the farm but our grandchildren (8 and 6), who visit Chatsworth Farm Park regularly and see lots more animals, were more... More

The kids enjoyed this one, but I was expecting more animals then there was. Water play area was good, but as we didn't know it was there wish they has some spare water proofs for the kids as mine got soaked. Kids liked feeding the guinea pigs. Big pain was lack of parking and getting stung for £3.50 up the... More

My kids are animal crazy so this was definitely on our list when we came to stay in Weymouth. In general the farm is lovely, great play facilities and some lovely animals. However for the cost which was £27 for my family I would have hoped for a bit more and for that price to include parking (which is an... More

Took my two year old and she had a fantastic time! Soft play area, bouncy castle, animals to interact with, outside park area and toy tractors to ride on. Plus more. There's a little cafe and also area to take pack lunch. My only issue is could do with another baby change facilities. Other than that a great day!!
