“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

I went with my girlfriend and her 3 year old nephew. The farm itself is quite small and the entrance had some cages with small animals that can be purchased, this made the entrance and shop have a foul smell.

The close up with the animals on the large barn was very good. The animals around the farm are really cool.

The tractor ride seemed like a good idea but was a bit pointless. A lot of cages have been taken away and the farm seems quite empty.

“Children love it!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Lots of animals to see and feed, and hands-on experiences in the barn, plus tractor and trailer rides. Entry fees are quite expensive for a family.

“Avidaunt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Have visited many times with my favourite nieces and nephews. As long as they love it, then so do I. Could do with a little maintenance work but the farm is good value for money, and the animals are well cared form. Christmas is an especially good time to go. There is also an excellent craft shop (Craft Stash) that runs great workshops for children and adults.

“Good Farm”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

After reading the other reviews I didn't have high expectations for this place but thought we would visit as it was close to home. The price is good compared to some other farms. The farm was full of animals and my children enjoyed the small animal handling session. The outdoor tractors and children's vehicles were a hit and they really enjoyed the inside soft play area whilst we enjoyed a coffee in the café. It could do with a bit of tlc but overall and enjoyable trip.

“Great value, would recommend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

We have bought annual membership to this farm for 4 years in a row for my two boys age 7 and 5. It is good value, for £120 you get family membership which means you can go as often as you like for a year, and its always open apart from christmas day! The outside area has animals (llamas, alpacas, monkeys, lemurs, birds, donkeys, goats), an inside barn with things like snakes, pigs, sheep, rabbits, chinchillas) and some play areas. Outside play facilities a bit old but kids seem to enjoy them (sand pit, trampolines, merry-go-round, swings). Some old tractors have been painted up to climb on. And there's an indoor soft play area so even when its wet you can while away an afternoon letting them jump about. Better than paying £10 per child for one afternoon a dedicated soft play area. I would recommend this farm if you have kids under 8 and live locally, but membership is better value than a single visit.
