There is a small farm to walk around including chickens, pigs with their babies,Jersey cows, ponies and sheep and a great cafe with friendly staff and tea and coffee for £1 and ice cream and...

I know this is obviously a free attraction but for me it really was not worth the 10min trip! We went on a Saturday with four young children. The park itself is nothing special at all and was full of teenagers and adults with their tops off littering the park with food and drink! Not nice. The farm part of... More

We found this place by accident and spent a very enjoyable hour or two watching the planes come in and out. Brilliant spot to sit although very few benches provided. Thought we would have a coffee before we went home as tea room looked decent enough price wise, however to get to the team room you have to walk through... More

Nice little place to spend a couple of hours, the farm is quite small so doesn't take very long to wander around it, there are chickens, cows, pigs, the usual animals. There's a small coffee shop with seating outside that serves nice ice-creams Next to the farm is a children's play park, which is great but does get very busy... More

Great place to visit. There is a small farm with some animals, children love it. Lots of open space to wander around. If you walk to the far end, there is a viewing area at the end of Birmingham City Airpot, planes come in above you r 4 head, great entertainment

Great cafe but this is the place to see farm animals but in the city. Lots of walks from here as well and also plane spotting from a short walk away.
