A Tudor replica farm. Free Car Park Plenty of demonstrations and activities. Ideal for families and children. See how the middle class lived during those days. Good cafe and teashop. Best deal is to buy the combined entrance ticket to include other Shakespeare attractions.

Unfortunately this was closed when we visited the Shakespeare houses so hoping to come back as this would have completed our stay doing the Shakespeare experience.

We thought we would only be popping in here....but was kept busy almost all day. Excellent hawk display. Nice selection of farm animals. Cafe. But the highlight was the staff lunch. No idea what to expect...but turned out to be informative and lots of fun....More

Pleasant but rather pricey, although a good choice of cakes and drinks and a welcome stop after visiting the attraction.

Excellent playground for kids. My five year old loved running around the open spaces. The man doing the birds of prey was excellent and very entertaining. It is a little expensive when you consider what is actually there but most of our party enjoyed it....More
