We were looking for an activity for our tired 2 year old after arriving on an early morning flight and boy are we glad we found this. The price to enter made us think it's be a quick time filler before dinner and bed bug if turned into a 4 hour outing and could easily have spent longer. The hands... More

We took our 3 grandsons (4yrs, 2yrs and 10 months) to Longdown after lunch in early October. We had a lovely welcome from the lady on the desk and were told that if we hurried we could join in with holding a baby chick! The boys absolutely loved it! From brushing a baby goat, petting a bunny, feeding the ducks,... More

We enjoyed it for a couple of hours. Plenty for kids to look at and do, animals, tractors rides, pedal tractors, soft play, trampolines. Activities throughout the day including holding chicks, stroking rabbits and feeding times. Free parking. Costs £9 for an adult, children under 3 are free. Cafe looked totally uninspiring so we ended up going to Lyndhurst. Overall... More

Thank you for your review, most of our visitors enjoy the interaction with the animals, as there is an activity every half hour throughout the day, they would normally stay on the farm for at least 3 hours, saying that many of our visitors like to stay all day and get involved and use the play equipment in between feeding...

We have visited Longdown many times over the last 8 years with our young family. The staff are friendly and welcoming. There is plenty to do for all ages. Lots of animal feeding and handling, many different play areas both indoors and out including go carts, ride on tractors, trampolines, sand play, soft play and the hay barn! We love... More

Would just like to say that my 8 year old daughter had the best Birthday Party at Longdown yesterday. She was made to feel special from start to finish and all the children loved it! Farmer Bryan is fantastic and all the activities the children got to do were such fun. Would highly recommend Longdown Farm as a Children's Birthday... More

First place I have been to where I have either had to pay for a three year old, or pay almost the same price for a three year as I had to for myself. The tractor ride only runs a few times in the day, if you miss one then it is a couple of hour wait. Not somewhere I... More

We went last year when on holiday and returned this year. Daughter was now 3 and could do more for herself. She loved it, feeding and in her words "looking after" the animals. Day was so full of activities we were all shattered when we got back to our lodge! Wish this was on our doorstep as would get a... More
