We had a passport ticket for the swannery, farm and gardens so popped into the farm after visiting the swannery. There were lots of animals and it was nice to see the big tithe barn. I was disappointed with the standard the animals were being kept in, lots of them didn't seem to have much room and looked a bit... More

Wonderful little place hidden away in beautiful countryside with superb views. Pony rides, guinea pig handling, goats, lamb and duck races, soft play, games and water play, our girls completely adore going here and are exhausted by the time we leave... Always a bonus! yummy cakes and coffee too.

Went to visit the farm in May with 3 generations of family. Lovely day out, daughter loved feeding the lambs and seeing all the animals up close. Well looked after animals. Play barn is excellent too and even a climbing wall available on the day we visited. Lovely lunch in the cafe too.

The farm needs to be farm animals. Difficult to take pram around venue. Over priced. Needs to be more entertaining for the children. Parking a rip off. Dissapointing visit and not likely to return.

This is an excellent attraction for young children. Once entrance fee is paid all activities are included except the pony rides. Children can hold guinea pigs, feed them and comb the horses. Plenty of activities and areas to play. Even on a bank holiday it wasn't overcrowded.

A great place to visit with our little one, she loved the lamb racing and bottle feeding, lots of animals about on a children friendly site. The play barn was excellent as was the on site restaurant.

As for parking, Swannery car park is free and less than 5 min walk and a lovely stroll up a lane it is... More

Have been a couple of times taking grandchildren both times. I wouldn't call it a day out probably good for a few hours with a picnic. Quite a big indoor play area. Nice enclosure where the guinea pigs are kept and children are welcomed in to sit with a guinea pig on their lap and feed them a carrot. Ride... More

We came away from this place feeling really uncomfortable - the animals enclosures were dirty, tired and incredibly cramped. There were cute bunnies with barely any room to move and glum looking horses desperately trying to get out of their stables. The only animals that had a reasonable (at best) amount of room were the alpacas, but they had no... More
