Our farm is a family run business. We have been open to the public for 28 years and we are growing every year. We like to ensure that the kids get a real hands on experience with our animals, letting them hands and feed our animals with our staff. We have many different play areas for the kids as well to make sure they have as much fun as possible. On average most families spend 2-3 hours with us. Many stay for a whole day of fun.

Nice farm with lots of activities for children

Clean place, friendly staff, lots of animals to see and pet. Would be nice if it were open throughout the year like the Ark Open Farm

Thank you for a lovely review. Unfortunately as we are a dairy farm as well we need all our indoor space for the cows in winter. We also think it's important to let the animals get a bit of break and just do what they want to do for a wee bit. When we close we open up the pets... More

Streamvale farm is a fantastic place to visit. I remember going as a child and now I go regularly with my daughters. I have a season ticket which is brilliant and there is so much for my girls to see. Even at only 10 months they get so much from a visit and love petting the animals (especially the rabbits),...

I remember going to Streamvale as a child and now I'm going with my children who love it as much as I did years ago...and my goodness it's come on leaps and bounds - a credit to the owners and their staff!

We had a family day at streamvale and we weren't disappointed, we arrived at 10.30 for them opening and it was nice and quiet although it did get very busy before we left but nothing that we couldn't deal with. We spent some time just walking around the farm seeing the hens, pigs, sheep, ponies, donkeys, goats etc etc, playing... More

This is a great place to go with kids though adults will definitely enjoy it as well. Lots for the kids to see and do including getting up close with the animals and opportunities to feed, cuddle and play with them. Admission is quite expensive but the experience very enjoyable.

We visited on a trip with our extended family and our one year old. It's a working farm, they still have a large herd of milking cows so it's smelly!! It has a good small selection of animals - goats, chickens, pigs, cows etc which I assume are brought into the viewing barn each morning and taken out each night... More

Thank you for your review. We do have big signs telling you that all our animals go out to the field at night. They all happily come running in again in the morning so they are obviously happy with their pens. We would love to be able to afford things like soft play but it is an unbelievable expense! Our...

I have visited Streamvale farm many times over the past number of years. My two children ages 6 and 2 love it. It's well set out with clearly defined areas in which to feed, stroke and look at the animals. There's also a play area with tractors to ride on, ball guns to shoot and slides to go down. It...
