Adults are £2 and kids are £6;50, very good value for money. First thing, my 2 year old is tractor mad, the farm yard had an abundance... More

Thank you so much for your review. It was nice to read it after the previous one so thank you for that! We genuinely believe £6.50 is good value for money for the play stuff that is available and we do all try very hard to make sure everyone has a lovely visit! More

Went here when they had the paddock closed so didn't see all animals. Reduced price for adults (£2 instead of the usual £5) but kids still full price at £6.50!! Firstly, why aren't they reduced?? Secondly, why are they more expensive than adults in the first place... Never seen that in an attraction before, even attractions for kids like this... More

Oh dear, so sorry to hear you didn't seem to have an enjoyable time with us. As you say, paddocks were closed which is why the adult price was reduced as recognition that the full attraction wasn't open that day. With regard to the £6.50 child rate, that is not reduced for two reasons: a) we were far too cheap... More

Great place to take the kids, a play area, farm animals and a nice cafe to stop for a snack or drink. we have been several times over the years and have never been disappointed. Even in wet weather there are places to take cover.

I visited Docker Park Farm 2 years ago soon after the new owners took over and was pleasantly surprised by how much it had improved and changed. I visited again yesterday with 3 under 10s and just wanted to say it is an even better day out. The animals look very well cared for; and the children loved it and... More

Then went around the farm where we saw lots of well kept animals. There were signs everywhere encouraging people to wash thier hands after feeding or petting the... More

I had visited the farm a couple of years ago and was at that time very disappointed. Since then I believe the farm has new owners and the improvements they have made are remarkable. My kids age 6 and 3 had a great time. The farm has been designed by someone who knows what kids like and although it looks... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review. When we bought the farm it was disgusting, filthy, run down etc etc!

Great day for all the family - visited with our 2 young children lots to see and do and caters for any weather. The play areas are particularly good and kept the kids and dad well entertained. Had the place to ourselves which was a bonus, however beautiful surroundings and lots of great animals to see.

I visited Docker Park Farm today with my Mum & 2 boys (aged 3 & 6 weeks old!). My 3-year old loved it, lots to do & see, he especially enjoyed cuddles with the rabbits & guinea pigs, the soft play area and the outdoor playground.

So sorry to hear you felt let down by the cafe. Firstly, thanks for giving us a "Very Good". I'm glad you enjoyed the farm and all it's facilities. Moving onto the cafe: I shall have to speak to the cook that was in yesterday and discover the issue with the burger. The way you describe it sounds quite horrible... More
