5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Lovely day out for old and young. Buildings and items from the 1940/50s .Spot the items you remember and perhaps those you had forgotten. Enjoy a meal or cuppa in the lovely tea rooms ,stroll round the grounds and admire the plants and animals. Their is plenty of facilities for children as well . oast house very interesting.

“Lovely farm, great tractor rides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

We go here all the time and we are yearly members now too, my just turned two year old son, loves it here especially the cuddle corner with rabbits, guinea pigs and chickens. All the animals come over to the fence so you can feed goats, sheep and alpacas by hand.
He also just loves the free tractor ride, it is a real bumpy ride so loved by kids!
We also really enjoy the quad bike rides, only £1 so good value.
The food is great here in the play barn and reasonable too, there are plenty of picnic tables so you can bring your own picnic too.
The outdoor play area and sand pit is great fun!
My son especially likes playing the piano in the old village hall, so funny to watch, he also really enjoys paint a pot and would spend hours there if he could.
Overall loads to do and very enjoyable, if you live local definitely look at becoming members, as saves you lots of money.

“Fantastic family day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I have a young son and daughter and we come to Kent Life regularly. The play facilities are excellent, both inside and outside, meaning that whatever the weather the children can wear themselves out. The also love buying the Animal Feed (for a £1) and feeding the Sheep, Alpacas and Goats. The cafes are very reasonable and serve a great selection of treats and healthy alternatives. The staff are really friendly and look after us every time. I think Kent Life is an excellent attraction for under 8s.

“Sweet local attraction needs TLC.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Cute local attraction for 3 - 12 year olds, however some of the exhibits are in need of a bit of TLC. Animals appeared well cared for staff were friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs. A pleasant day out for young families.
