We visited this farm with our 3 year old grandson. It was ideal with lots of animals for him to see. Cafe was great. Would have been 5 star with a little thought! The down side is - animals produce poo and it needed cleaning! My recommendations are:- Keep soft play area (with ball pool and bouncy castle) animal and... More

I'd never been to Docker Park Farm before, now I can't wait to go again! It was fantastic. The weather was good too, which added to the whole experience of course. There were a variety of farm animals to meet, feed and pet at various times throughout the day. There were so many playareas, indoor, outdoor, large, small. There was... More

This is a good day out for the kids, although i wouldn't say there was "loads" of animals, there's still plenty of things for them to do or play on/ with to keep them happy for a few hours. There's the usual Rabbits and Guinea pigs , Goats , Geese, some big Pigs, etc. but we liked the Owls the... More

Docker Park Farm is a great place to take children under about 10. There is loads to do as there is a small, but very well designed soft play area, and bouncy castle. A straw barn with the swing of doom, go karts to whizz about on and an outdoor playground with bouldering wall.. The staff are very friendly and... 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

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
