Really sorry you did not rate watertop too highly. We do our best to ensure that all visitors to our home enjoy their stay with us. Its possible that you may prefer a much bigger communal site nearer a town or city. Most of our visitors like the fact that we are out in the countryside surrounded by fantastic scenery.... More

Visited in July 2014 with 5&2 yr old boys. In comparison to other fun farms there is a very limited amount of animals to see or interact with. They have cats in rabbit hutches and two dogs in a sheep pen - scrapping the barrel for ideas! Every extra Costs money - the boats the go karts the quad ride... More

Sorry you did not enjoy your visit to watertop. Im not sure if you took time to see the small animal section as we do have more than you have stated. You have not mentioned the chicks, the goats, the kittens, the lambs, the horses and the llamas. At Watertop we have always been recognised for our scenery and our... More

Lovely open farm lots to do, paddi wagon, go karts, boat trips, pony trekking. Lovely walk to waterfall well worth the steps. Nice clean playground enclosed for safety of younger children. All staff very friendly and helpful well worth a visit if you in the area.

Firstly really sorry I did not see and reply to you sooner. Secondly really sorry you are considering not returning. I can't explain the fires because we do have a very strict rules about fires and barbque trays on the pitches.The "warden" would have been one of the family and he is usually very strict about noise late at night....

Great family day out. Fantastic staff and activities. Stunning location. One big niggle like last reviewer is kittens and pups were being constantly dragged out of warmth of pens/hutch (even when clearly asleep) by excited children. Pups in particular looked very young with no mum nearby. I wish these animals were given somewhere quiet and private with no access to... More

I had a few issues with our visit this summer. Firstly there is no supervision of the animals within the farm especially puppies and kittens. I observed on several occasions children handling the kittens and hurting them on several occasions. The puppies were under the age of 8wks old but yet were not with their mum which is highly inappropriate... More
