I can't say how much fun this Pony Trekking was, some hairy moments, but all under control by the guides and horses have very good temperament for the job. Has the ride went on, the more you had to work the better it was. This isn't no ride around a field, you will see outstanding view of the mountains and... More

Not just an adventure farm but a restaurant that caters for all members of the family, serving freshly cooked food. The chef and the team prepare and serve Sunday roasts that beat those served at popular carverys.

We had a brilliant day Grandchildren 7 & 6 loved it, not much to do for my 17 year old, but she had a great fun on her phone! The littleone's enjoyed watching the pig racing although very smelly! They both enjoyed going on the tractors and the splash paddle boats. Great day out and not too expensive either. £35... More

Although it was slightly wet on our visit, it did not deter us from making the best of the day. Small farm so don't expect too much. We absolutely loved the sledge ride and must have done that a couple of times during our visit. Staff friendly and accommodating. The tractor ride was short but so much fun. Wales on... More

From the website I had expected this adventure farm to be larger than it was and also a bit slicker! There were only a handful of staff running everything from tractor rides, to panto shows to pet handling and as such every "activity" started late. The quality of the attractions were good for kids, but as an adult I felt... More

Thank You for your review. I am sorry that our shows did not start on time during your visit. I am glad you found the quality of kids attractions good but sorry you felt it looked run down.

We visited here today with our four children (6,5,2,4 months) and had an amazing day. We paid £35 for a family ticket. We arrived at 10:45 just after it opened and left at 17:20 just before it closed and there were things that we missed so its a full day of entertainment. The food and drinks were reasonably priced although... More
