Really cannot fault folly farm. I have been may times before but this was my husbands first visit with our 15month old. It was a cold windy day but there is plenty to do and see undercover. My daughter is a little young for most things but enjoyed the animals and soft play. I had a great time milking a goat, seeing the penguins and giraffe and playing the old fashioned slot machines. Although we didn't use them today the go karts, jcbs and John Deere tractors are great. There is so much to do here that isn't even advertised, everywhere you turn there's an adventure playground or sandpit. Loads for the kids that doesn't cost a thing. It's also a nice touch that there are plenty of picnic tables and bringing your own food is not frowned upon.
I was also impressed with the shop which was reasonably priced not like some other places that really fleece you in the shop. We bought my daughter 3 little tractors for £1.50 and she loves them.
As I said I've been coming here for years and it really is going from strength to strength. In the late nineties it was just a little farm, it is so much more now. Luckily it isn't getting tired as things are well maintained and updated. There are small touches everywhere that add something to the experience. Ill keep coming back even though its over an hour to get there.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I'm so pleased to hear that you enjoy regular visits to Folly Farm and that the cold, windy weather didn't dampen your spirits during your most recent day out with us. We have so much to do that's undercover which helps make a day with us enjoyable, regardless of what the weather has in store for us. I hope your husband also enjoyed his first Folly Farm experience!

It's great to hear that you are pleased with the variety of attractions and activities available, as well as the cleanliness and maintenance of the park and that you think we are great value for money. I hope you found the free entry for ages 2 and under helpful for your young daughter, and I'm glad she enjoyed the animals and our soft play areas.
You may be interested in our annual passes as you are a regular visitor, (you only have to visit the park three times to make a saving). You may also be interested to know that we run Toddler Takeover days once a month from March-October, (with extra dates available in August) that are full of exciting themed activities suitable for little ones which I'm sure your daughter would enjoy.
Thanks again for your lovely review and for making the long journey to come and see us, we look forward to seeing you again soon!
