“Fantastic family day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We visited the farm park for our sons 8th birthday and took our 9 and 12 year olds with us. They loved the animals and the play area. We even saw a lamb being born. whilst we were there our younger two enjoyed the junior quad biking and the caterpillar ride and our 12 year old went for a quad bike trek. he loved every minute of it. The staff are super helpful and friendly and the owner even took time out from his busy day to stand and chat to us. Highly recommended for families with children of all ages!

“Very busy Easter Sunday !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We arrived at Thornton Hall Farm on Easter Sunday to be confronted by a massive line of traffic !! To cut a long story short, we were met while in the traffic by a lovely man who gave us good information ! He said that they were getting an unexpected influx of people and informed us of waiting time etc. and also they had an event next day on Easter Monday, if we would rather choose to come back then. He had opened a field for extra parking if we decided to stay... We decided to go ahead and wait because we came for our grandchild who could'nt come back next day. The organisation was wonderful. We were entertained by a Big Bunny while we were waiting to pay. We loved the variety of animals and the information we could read about them. We could feed, handle all animals and learn about them from the people there. It was great. And above all - my 2 year old granddaughter was amazed about the Punch and Judy Show !! We loved this place and will definately come again !! x

“Kids love the Quad Bikes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Taken the kids ( 11,12,13 ) Quad biking for the second time and they still want more. Its a fabulous experience with the trek taking you round many different types of terrain round the extended farm area ( much better than some other places that just go round and round the same track ) lots of tuition and tips from Chris so the kids could maximise the enjoyment but still feel safe. Wont be long before we are back again !!

“Made our son's day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Had a wonderful afternoon at the farm today for my sons birthday! All the staff have gone out of their way to make us welcome. We have been quad biking feeding animals, on a safari, on the park, play tractors, slides etc. My son and his friends have had a great time! Thank you!
