It is great for the kids. There is a playground as well as a farm. Lots of free space to run around too.

“great family day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

definitely worth a visit, regularly each season. the playground has something for all ages, even those parents who like to relive their childhood. Farm worth a visit, has so many types of animals and its a walk through history lesson. grounds are extensive and kept in great condition, its a national treasure more people should visit. food in tea rooms is excellent and freshly made. no chicken nuggets here just traditional fayre resulting in all kids plates empty afterwards.

The farm tour is great, kids love it! Park is beautiful for walking, there is also a picnic and BBQ area which is great in the summer, and the children's playground is excellent

“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

With our toddler grandson, we visited regularly throughout the summer & autumn. The gardens provide a wonderful balance between tended lawns & wilderness. The playground was well-planned - as always, the little ones need to be watched! The farm provided an overwhelmingly positive experience - well-looked after animals with plenty of space, yet accessible to the visitor... The coffee shop is good - lovely bakes.. - with the option of sitting in the cobblestoned courtyard. The grounds & playground are free of charge. The farm entry cost is softened by the opportunity to collect stamps towards a free family ticket. Wonderful place!
