My partner and I visited with our 15month old daughter. This is a really lovely place. Animals are kept clean and look well cared for. My daughter loved the petting area where you can get very close to the animals. There is a clean and well kept park area with bouncy castles outside as well as indoor soft play. Very... More

I thought it would be lovely to spend a couple of hours with my mum after school with her gran kids. Two adults three kids (9, 7 and 2 years) cost £34 entry. A completely reasonable charge for a fun day out. I asked if there was an after school rate as the notice stated the farm closed at 5pm.... More
