A family fun day out!

Adorable animals to feed and hold, sheep racing and animal demonstrations are just the start of your day out! With fun fair rides, children's shows, Tristan the Runaway Tractor, inflatable fun and acres of adventure play too.

And if the sun decides to have some time off there's pleny of under cover fun with Woolly Jumpers indoor play barn, Captain Chicken's Egg Dodge, The Farmyard and Toddler Town.

With seasonal event each school holiday there is always something new to see and do. From lambing in February, Bunny Hunts at Easter, Sheep Shearing in the spring and an A-maize-ing Maze throughout the summer.

In the autumn there is potato picking and pumpkins to harvest in October, with Santa's Grotto and his magical ice rink in the festive season.

This place is great with membership. We started the membership and June and try go twice a month for 2-3 hours. In addition the soft play is great in winter.

Went with my seven-year-old five-year-old and four-year-old friend's Daughter, we had a lovely day even though the weather wasn't good there was lots to do and see . We especially loved the sheep racing that was great fun for the whole family .

I don't often write reviews, well never actually, but felt compelled to do so for Willows Activity Farm. There was so much to do, very clean and professionally run. Lots of friendly staff and great shows. My 4 year old loved it and i loved it and it only took about 30 min drive from west London.

Willows may be expensive but by the time you leave you feel value for money, the day is packed with quality activities, they treat member and visitors as valued customers. Kids love it, family from abroad always want to come and Christmas and Easter is always special at Willows

We decided to take our granddaughter for day out. They have certainly improved the park since our last visit however it is still generally a large field with farm animal in pens and a number of children play areas of varying degrees of interest. There was a distinct shortage of staff monitoring some of the attractions, in particular the two... More

The upgrade to many areas and addition of the Peter Rabbit theme is fantastic, and the visit is now much more value for money. The Peter Rabbit playground is really so good, and the Cottontail area is lovely too. The bigger sand areas are very nice. A lovely day out!

Willows activity farm really was an activity farm as there is so much to do here. Yes it is a bit pricy to get in but it's actually worth the money as we spent the bulk of the day here - we saw all the animals, kids (10 months and 3.5 years) played in the Peter rabbit play ground, on... More
