Came here a few days ago not knowing what to expect. Turns out we were not disappointed! The farm tour was amazing, we really enjoyed the interactive nature of it and the piglets were so cute! Staff all very friendly and couldn't be more helpful, we'll definitely be back!

We visited last year and wanted to came back this year as we enjoyed it. We arrived just after 10 and got booked onto the first farm tour at 11am. The children played in the soft play whilst we waited which they enjoyed..(maybe a few more things for the younger ones?) We then had our farm tour, thank you Henry... More

I went on a lovely sunny day and was guided on a tour by a lovely and experienced tour guide called Emily. It was a lovely experience and it was nice to get to see all the big farm animals and stroke a duckling and I managed to see the new piglets. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and both...

I have visited many times and we and our children love it staff are friendly and very good day out. I recently decided to book a party however it had to be cancelled last minute as I was taken in for surgery. A member off stage rang me where I explained the situation she said I would be refunded and... More

Absolutely appalled by this farm! The dogs they have on the loose are vile, vicious and a danger to have on a "family farm". After visiting this farm with my family and my 3 year old son we came away horrified with our family dog having a puncture wound in her neck. When we arrived at the farm there were... More

Visited with 3 year old who loves animals. Had our family dog with us, some attraction have an area where this can be accommodated away from the attraction. Followed sings on the right hand side to parking area. As we got to the entrance signs on gate saying " no dogs beyond this point" so turned to leave. We notice... More

Did the farm tour. My 2 year old got to feed the animals. Best tour guide ever. Young lad bout 14 yrs old. Absolutely brilliant. He made it really interesting for someone (me) who isn't really bothered about farm animals. Artisan bread sold on site - couldn't resist opening and tasting on way out. Delicious. Soft play in this place... More

We payed £25 for 2 adults and a toddler. Our daughter isn't 2 yet, so we found it unreasonable from the start given we had to pay £8.50 for her. It's a nice place, 1hour on a guided tour, but I much prefer going round the animals independently rather than in a group, where you have to wait 10 minutes... More

I visited Big Sheep & Little Cow earlier this week with my mother-in-law, husband, toddler and baby. We didn't really know what to expect and on arrival thought £8.50 each was a little steep however we quickly changed our minds! We were very impressed with the farm tour which lasted a full hour. Our little boy, who is 19 months... More

Could be a nice soft play as there is lots of equipment aimed at all ages. However when we visited with our two pre-school children on a school day, we had never imagined that a large class of pubescent boys would arrive with only three ineffectual teachers to supervise. They were instantly running riot through the place making it completely... More
