Fun afternoon out!
Sep 2021
Second visit for us with other grandson and his Mum and Dad. Friendly staff on reception and he really enjoyed the soft play area. We really enjoyed seeing all the animals on the site and especially the tractor/trailer ride to see the deer, cows and sheep with good commentary on board.

Our only compaint was the very slow service in the cafe even though the food/drinks are ordered through an app. Call my old fashioned but I don't have a fancy phone and can appreciate that not being able to order in real life with a human being will chase potential customers away. Fortunately, I had a member of my family who could book.

Our meals took 25 minutes and by mistake, we had ordered a chicken panini, so had to go back on the app and order a veggie meal for my wife which delayed us even more, taking 20 minutes to be ready. No waitress service as you have to go up to the counter to collect.

Whole day of fun
Oct 2021 • Family
We were there for 4 hours but could have easily stayed longer. We visited on a Friday when kids are in school so it was perfect for our
3yr old as it was really quiet so we weren’t restricted to time slots. The farm animals were standard/good, but it was the play facilities we thought were really good! The soft play and slides were great, big enough to accompany your child going around and smaller areas for little ones. The castle was really cool and unique! Again big enough to accompany your child going round. Outdoor play also really fun and the staff were really friendly. Food was nice, a little pricey for what it was but I guess you expect it from these types of places. We stopped here from google recommendations as it was half way home from our holiday and we will definitely be going back when we are next up this way, and recommending to our friends.

Variety is the name of the game and they've nailed it!
Aug 2021 • Family
So much to do. Variety is the name of the game here with plenty to offer. The little one loved the play barn particularly. The wife enjoyed the huge sunflowers that she could pick herself. Great day out and could easily spend 4-5 hours here.

Fun planed safe
Aug 2021 • Family
Online booking was simple. You picked a time to arrive and times for the castle and the other inside play area. We did the castle at 10.25 and the other area at 12:35 which meant both areas weren't too busy and in between played outside. We missed the areas being too busy and later on the inside areas were packed (still in covid guidance tho) the castle area is a great addition and loads of different routes for the children to explore and a small area for tots.
My daughter loved the trampoline, people weren't sticking to one person per trampoline but as long as it was the same family it's no problem. Barrow ride was fun for little ones. Sand area is great for all
Goat racing is entertaining
The tractor ride was very informative, fun and little bit bumpy as expected.

Food you have to scan a qr code unfortunately there Internet wasn't working so we went to the counter and they let us pay normally which was great. The service was brilliant as well was the food. Steak pie and chips yum
The kids bags are very generous.

Only thing that up set us that we went to the ice cream counter to be told we had to go to the other counter to order it from their even the we were right next to the ice cream. Just seemed like hard work to get a ice cream
The sunflower field was unreal. Didnt expect it to be so big.
The prices are expensive for adults and if you have a 1 year old you have to pay full child price.
All. In all we had a good day.

I absolutely love this place! Best memories!
Aug 2021 • Family
I absolutely love this place. Been bringing my nephews for years and I never fail to have a good time. The wooden castle is amazing! Just wow! Whoever designed that, genius! My nephew was in his element running round discovering all the little bits, must admit, I was too! We had the best time, I love that adults can get involved with everything too. Nephew’s best bits are the wiggly slide, the castle and trampolines. My best bits the go kart bikes and the goats! Always the goats. I love Walby, thanks SO much for the amazing family memories. 😊😊😊

Best day
Aug 2021 • Family
We have been visiting Walby several times a year for the past 12 years & I don't know how you do it but every year just gets better. I think the foam party today was THE best idea! Thank you for helping us make more amazing memories.

Expensive for adults
Aug 2021
I agree with other people who comment how expensive this is for adults. I visited with 2 older children who found little for their age group, although I do appreciate that older children can be difficult to keep entertained. As the adult in the party all I did was sit and have a wander around. Great for smaller children by the look of things, but we left after a very expensive hour.

Excellent day out for children
Aug 2021 • Family
Excellent afternoon spent here with 3 young boys aged 2, 3 and 8 years old. So much to see and do for all ages of children. Definitely worth planning to spend at least half a day here. Our favourite part had to be the wooden castle built in doors so that you could play in it in all weather. One of the most fun and imaginative children’s play areas I’ve been to in this country.
