We stayed at the hostel on site (pls see that review) and one of the great things about it is that you get full access to the farm. My kids are a bit older now but they just loved it. A wide range of animals - the pigs were a definite hit - and activities, with a pretty awesome zip... More

So much to see and do here, the family loved it. We could easily have stayed all day. The tree top walk is a great new attraction for any age, even our three year old granddaughter managed it.

Disappointed in the limited animlas-mostly pigs plus a couple of sheep, a pony and donkey. And chickens. No goats and we couldn't see a rabbit village. It all looked quite sparse and untidy, and the woodland play area and woods looked uncared for. Maybe winding down at the end of the seaon but we still paid the same amount, and... More

Dear Jas, Thank you for your feedback, and sorry to hear it wasn't a more positive review. We have so many animals on display here at the farm (mostly more than one of each as we breed the majority of our animals to preserve and encourage the breeds as we have so many British rare breed animals). Upon arrival you... More

We called in as a couple, as we were visiting the local pub, but this would be an excellent site for children of all ages. It is well laid out, and there is plenty of walking round it. There are a lot of animals around, many rare breeds, and you can buy food for them. The girls who do the... More

I have been coming here for over four years with my son, now 5. Arrived today after an 8 month break and don't recognise the place. It's always been overpriced, But now some key parts have gone. The big sandpit it now a vineyard! The indoor play barn with ride ons is locked up, the rabbits have gone who knows... More

Dear ixrtehaikr, Thank you for taking the time for writing your review, and I am hoping to address some of your issues you have raised within the review. I cannot agree that we have changed for the worse as you suggest; we have spent substantial amounts of time and money in the past 12 months or so, investing in new... More

14 of us visited the rare breeds farm today with toddlers and had a great day. It's clean , we'll run there's plenty to do for all the family. There may be no lions and tigers but you visit the zoo for those. Nice grounds with tables you can take your own picnics if you wish and play in a... More

A wonderful and reasonably priced attraction. Rain or shine it's cool. It even has pig racing, tractor rides and lots of indoor play area's. Well worth a visit. Hot drinks and food but worth taking a picnic.

Hi Dave, Thanks so much for the lovely review, we really appreciate you taking the time to do it for us! Our pig race is currently replaced with goat walking (the kids love it!) as we are renaming our pig race track - to make it look far more fun and exciting, so find us online for when it's all...

Cholderton rare breed farm is an ideal place to take your children. There are lots of opportunities for them to feed and pet rabbits, goats, pigs and horse! The highlight of the trip was the pig racing, although you can't force them to race, the three that actually took part were hilarious! I'd advise people to go when it isn't... More

Not a bad set up for a very well polished farm. Limited animals on show, though you're able to feed and pet them until your hearts content (if that's your style). I would strongly suggest this attraction is age ranged for children no older than 16 years of age. A great way to absorb 3-4 hours. The pig racing is... More

Dear Ben, Thank you for your review, shame it wasn't slightly higher score given the positive remarks you have made. The pigs which were 'running' during the time of your visit were at the end of their season, most people found this quite humorous, and we have since replaced pig racing with goat walking, as we are revamping the track...
