“Breath taking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We were so happy with our day here it was beautiful and the staff are truly amazing we had a lovely time and our 2 children came away so happy after there day here. The involvement with the animals really is something special. The tea rooms are so reasonably priced and the garden/picnic area is beautiful

“Beautiful views in relaxed surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Visited for the first time today and it is situated in a lovely spot, although on our way up there we became a bit unsure whether we were on the right road, bit narrow..My 3 year old loved all the different animals with options to feed lambs, hold/stroke chicks, stroke rabbits, goats etc. they were really good at making sure all children got a chance too. Could even take the goats on a guided walk. Lovely gardens to walk around and a good kids play park which we seemed to have to ourselves :-) looked like they were still developing another playpark too. Nice trip out in lovely surrondings in a very relaxed setting, they give a map to follow round which is helpful. Our morning was finished off by a lovely ice cream. All in all a nice day out think it would be nice in a large group otherwise a couple of hours is plenty of time to see and experience this lovely working farm and gardens.

“Great Day Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We decided to visit after getting a special family offer via a website & I am so glad we did. It was lovely & clean & all the staff were extremely helpful & friendly. My children had a great time looking at the animals & even had a chance to feed & hold some of the younger baby animals. Beautiful gardens which we were also able to look around

“A nice day out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

As our 3 year old grandson was staying with us, we decided to have a day out to Cobble Hey Farm and I managed to obtain a family voucher deal. We followed the directions of the sat nav, however it was a little difficult to find and there weren't many signs. After the last sign we saw, we then followed the brown signs for places of interest and thankfully found the farm, When we arrived, It was a lovely sunny day and many people had also decided to pay the farm a visit,so parking initially, was a little difficult . We decided to have lunch first in the farm tea rooms and managed to find a table quite easily. Although very nice, it was a little disorganised and we found the food quite expensive. The waitress were quite young and new and we had to ask more than once for cutlery, the cakes we had ordered etc. This said, the staff were very pleasant and the ice creams exeptionally nice. If the weather permits, I would strongy recommend taking a picnic to have in the extensive gardens

Following lunch we proceeded to follow the garden trail from the leaflet we had been given on admission. We found the plan very useful and it was especially sentimental and touching to read that the gardens were in memory of the owners mother. It was very pleasant following the garden route and the various areas and our grandson was delighted when we arrived at the large play area. with slides, swings and a summer house.

We had been told the lambs feeding times, so we duly made our way back to the barn where the event was being held. The barn itself is very large and divided into various sections.These include a large play area with hay bales and pens which hold various animals (may sure all clothing is secured otherwise the goats will try to eat any loose ties, as they did with mine!!) . The play area did appear to be quite disorganised and littered with various bits and pieces including a very sharp implement (? half of a pair of scissors), however in fairness to the owners, there are notices all over reminding you that this is a working farm and that children should be supervised at all times. There was a delay with the feeding of the lambs, but it was well worth the wait. There was not only the opportunity to feed the lambs, but also the pigmy baby goats and the owners ensured that every single child had their go (even me!). It was then possible to walk some of the goats, which the older children were happy to do. On the whole we did have a lovely day and I would definately recommend a visit.

“The best farm park we've been to - beautiful, fun and very clean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

What a lovely place! We took our 2yr old son with a Groupon voucher but we both agreed we would happily have paid the full price to get in.
We got there just in time for the first lamb feeding and all the children had the chance to feed a lamb, as well as stroke a rabbit and some chicks, and hold a baby pigmy goat. The staff gave talks about the animals and took them round for everyone to see. Then they brought out some adult pigmy goats and we were able to take them for a walk on a lead as a big group. My son loved this!
We had lunch in the tea rooms which were spotlessly clean but I have to say I thought the food was over priced for what it was - next time we will bring a picnic!
We saw pigs and cows in the barn and walked up past the sheep and ponies to the outdoor playarea which was lovely.
We were told when we arrived that we could wander where we liked, so we walked back through the beautiful gardens - a lot of effort has gone into them, they were really lovely with little paths to walk around and a huge, luscious green lawn.
Before we left we went through the main barn and saw the goats, sheep and cows again and went through into the indoor playarea which was fab - cars to ride on for little ones, a straw maze, table tennis... our little boy didn't want to leave!
I can't say enough about this place, we will definitely be back again. The staff were all friendly and welcoming and the whole place was spotless, which must be hard to maintain with people tramping around in wellies!! Even the toilets were well presented!
I would recommend this for everyone looking for a fun and interesting day out.
