Owner description: A day of adventure awaits at the National Forest Adventure Farm, whatever the weather. You can meet and feed the animals, explore the outdoor Funfield and have fun in the huge indoor play area. Meet a host of farm animals including pigs, sheep, cows and goats. In the spring and summer you can also bottle feed our lambs. You can cuddle a rabbit or guinea pig and see our more unusual animals such as alpaca, reindeer and chipmunks. We also have daily animal activities including pony grooming, milking demonstrations and egg collecting. The huge Funfield features a range of have a go activities including Go-Karts, assault course, mini golf, jumping pillow and in the summer the Water Splash Out. Why not take a tractor and trailer ride around the farm and look out for the scarecrows? The 3000m² indoor playbarn features a huge soft play area with demon drop slides. There's an under 5's area with a ball pit and giant Lego construction zone. Enjoy eating out or picnicking at one of our landscaped areas on sunny days, or in our airy 120-seat restaurant. In the summer, the Farm is home to a huge 10 acre maize maze. So take on the challenge of 3 miles of pathways, bridges and viewing towers.

“overpriced for what there is on offer.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

at £27 for one adult and two children this is overpriced for what is on offer. Although there are a number of different cattle, animals and rodents that seem happy enough we expected more than what is basically a farm with a "wacky type warehouse" attached. Also when walking through the cafe on the way out we noticed many tables that were still waiting to be cleared with piles of food on. Although the staff here we mainly students working for the summer they were on the whole nice, polite and knowledgeable.

“Fun in the maize”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Took my 11 year old nephew who loved the maize but it did take 2.5 hours to complete. The animals, trampoline, bikes were his favorites. I do think most of the other bits are for smaller children

“Halloween”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Went to the Maize Maize for Halloween and it scared me half to death but was brilliant fun.
Would suggest taking children before it gets dark as the children who were walking around on the tours ended up really frightened and upset.

“Fantastic for Kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

I took my three great nieces for the day and found that desipte the weather there is so much to do indoors and out. What I like the most is that it is really educational without trying. A real farm, real animals, attractions with great synergy with the rural life and a proper experience for kids. Nothing crass or overly manufactured, somewhere where kids get to enjoy themselves and use their imagination. A rarity these days with all the theme parks.

“Excellent day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

First visit with my 12 year old granddaughter and her friend, and my 5 year old granddaughter. Not too sure if 12 year olds would find it too young for them - but they loved it, as did the 5 year old. Compared to other days out, think the price is fair. Loads to do both inside and outside. Children need socks for the indoor play area and long sleeves and trousers recommended for the slides. Also there is a water play area where kids get soaked so swimwear and towel needed for this. As outside bouncy castle is surrounded by a spongey carpet, if it rains this gets wet so spare socks recommended.
