We have a season ticket to longdown so regularly visit. My daughter is nearly 2 now and she is at a good age to benefit what the farm has to offer. There are plenty of interactive experiences where young children can hold and feed the animals and a lovely play area. There is also a little soft play for when... More

My husband & I took a 7 year old to this Activity Farm and what a wonderful day we all had. She was given the opportunity to feed animals with bottles, touch and stroke them. I felt the whole day was very well organised and the staff were so good with the children. They even have the opportunity to collect... More

Visited with a disabled friend. Cannot thank the staff enough for how well my friend was treated. Plenty to see and do for children and young at heart adults. Will definitely visit again

Nice farm which is an ok for price. It is small but here was enough to keep my 2 1/2 year old son interested for 3 hours. Great for him to feed the animals.

Been here probably 4/5 times, always fun for the kids, goats (small & big) calves to feed with a bottle, small animals to hold, chicks my granddaughter's favourite, soft play area indoors, outside play area, sit on rides, diggers to have a go on (some extra payment, £1) tractor rides, if you don't have a dodgy back or preganant, piglets...

This farm is more enjoyable than the other farms that we have previously visited, namely Staunton Country Park and Manor Farm Country Park. We enjoyed the hands-on activities at Longdown Activity Farm particularly goat kids feeding and large goat feeding. In the baby animal encounter, we got to hold chicks, stroke rabbits and brush a goat's fur. If you are... More

Went today with my 10.5 month old and he had a great time. Fed the ducks, gave milk to the goats. He loved the trampolines, nice cafe and farm shop. Very friendly staff. £9 entry on the door, can get 10% off online in advance but they don't accept tickets shown on phone which is a disappointment as we don't... More

On the plus side, it is a lovely afternoon visitor attraction, lots of animals obviously well cared for and very amenable to humans. Opportunities to feed, stroke and talk to the various characters. Children catered for primarily with Mums, Dads & Grandparents in attendance. A few other small attractions like tractor rides and soft play zones. Plenty of toilets and... More

We booked a day out on this farm, to see if is any good, Coming from London where you can find many free farms I was expecting something special for £9/person. But it was that fantastic. It was nice that you can hold baby chicks and they did have a lot of animals, but they did not have any sheep... More
