Great day for families with young children.

Great day out! Small park near the car park and a farm to walk around with a lovely tea room. Toilets in the farm were clean. 10 minute walk to Birmingham runway where you can biew the planes taking off and landing. Here there are plenty of Benches. Will definatley be back.

Fun but .....

I really like going there as a family but there are too much dogs , I think they should assign one area of the parks to be dog free
And they should have toilets as people travel far to get there and have to go all the way back home just to go to the toilets

Great experience!
Sep 2020
My first plane spotting trip this year. Chose a very hot day. Area was very tidy and everyone seated seemed to be socially distancing. One thing that did please me is the removal of the open top rubbish bins. Glad someone has realised the damage that can be done to aircraft engines if the rubbish blows onto the airport. Well done!

Cannot agree with previous review about litter everywhere. Certainly the airport/Marston Green end is very tidy.

Litter everywhere on a daily basis
Jul 2020 • Solo
Absolute hovel... Rubbish, nappies etc, strewn across the park on a daily basis. There's rangers there, but they only deal with the cute animals, not the ones who dont take their rubbish home. Complain about it on social media and they block you.
It's an embarrassment taking friends over there.

Do yourself a favour and nip over the Coventry road and visit Elmdon Park in Solihull.... You probably won't catch half the diseases you will in Sheldon Country Park

Lovely Place.
May 2020
Wanted to go somewhere where I could meet my daughter and granddaughters and still able to distance comfortably locally as it was a beautiful sunny day. This was just the place. Although the farm was closed the horses and sheep were in the field. Obviously cafe and toilets are closed and so were the children's playground. We walked to the airport, not far, and saw a plane take off and another land.
The dog loved it, just like being in the countryside. After the walk we got chairs and food out of the car and had a picnic in the adjacent field while maintaining social distancing of course.
Luckily none of us needed the toilet (except the dog) or I'd don't know what we'd have done.

Planes, Pigs, and a Cafe
Mar 2020 • Couples


I have visited the farm twice in the last month, and must tell you I'm extremely impressed with the lovely condition of the animals and their living arrangements.
I can't believe it is all free. Amazing afternoon out for local residents.

I think it's a wonderful facility and one that my native Coventry is sadly lacking.
We particularly fell in love with the pigs They are so friendly, and love a back scratch!
A wonderful days entertainment for all the family, especially if you like planes too.

Kind regards

Dog walks

Love taking the dog for a long, long walk here. Most people you meet are friendly, good paths, nice little small farm although can’t take dog. Understandable. Nice family friendly place to go.

Ideal for children and adults
Aug 2019
We take one of our younger grandchildren to the park on regular occasions and find that it has lots for the children to see and do,there is a childrens play area which is secure and a farm where the children can see all types of farmyard animals who are well looked after by volunteers,a 15 minute walk away is one end of Birmingham Airports runway and dependant of which way the planes are taking off the planes are just above your heads which is quite an experience for adults and children alike.

If you like aeroplanes!
Feb 2019
Accessing the park from nearby Marston Green railway station the park appears to have been a golf couse at some time however landing aircraft on runway 15 are very low. Taking off on runway 33 you need ear defenders. A sight to see which wil have you visiting many times.

Lovely Place
Oct 2019 • Family
We love it here and I quite often bring my young daughter as it's free and a lovely day out. Only issue last time we came was when we went into the cafe for a coffee and my daughter had a little chocolate bunny I was asked if my coffee was to take awayanf I said no as it was a chilly damp day and we wanted to warm up a little and the lady said she'd allow it today but inside was diners only. I understand this when it's busy but there was us and one other parent and child in the entire farm, so we sat inside feeling guilty for not buying food even though I'd bought items from there and we weren't sat with our own food only items bought there. We visit quite regularly and it's tainted this visit slightly. It's a reasonably long journey across Birmingham for us and I must say I am relatively disappointed after today. Won't be over as much if that's the reception we get.
