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.

Clearly the best of those I've been to for many reasons.... -excellent and polite staff -running dairy farm so actually possible to watch live milking -all manner of animals there from expected rabbits and goats through to deer and highland cattle -indoor 'karting',...

Very enjoyable day with plenty of play areas, lots of animals and lovely nature trails. The pettinf farm is ok although very rushed, i think each child got about 5 seconds to feed lambs.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am really pleased you enjoyed your time with us. As regards to the petting part of our farm. We let this kids hold the chicks, puppies and ababy rabbits for as long as they want to. They get as much vegetables as they want to feed to our rabbits,... More

We have just been to this farm with our one year old daughter and her great grandma, we were so glad to see activities to suit both young and old. Often our daughter gets a bit left out as activities are all for older kids. Loved the puppies and chicks the best. Great farm would recommend 😊

We have gone here many many times over the years and every year there are new bits a pieces added to add more fun for the kids! But there are niggly things that annoy me - there are always loads of wasps around the cafe (in and out), the lack of a fence beside the little river, and the vehicles... More

What a fantastic day out. We haven't been to Streamvale in a loooong time, and went with our toddler today, staying from 10.30 to 4pm. The new entrance is lovely and we were greeted by the lovely Judith who gave us hen food, wipes, a map and a timetable of the days activities, which included animal bottle feeding, dog agility,...

Streamvale is a great farm to go to! I have always went there and started taking my own children now- but it does get a bit repetitive. The staff that work there are lovely and welcoming and treat the children great. But once you have been once I'm afraid if you go again you won't find much new.

We went with our Sunday School day away, so there was a mix of different ages. Each member of staff were polite and very helpful, and cheery. The facilities were clean and well looked after. There was enough picnic space and things to do, between farm rides and cuddling animals. The cost was very reasonable too.

I loved Streamvale Open Dairy Farm, I think it is fantastic for kids especially if they aren't used to seeing various animals and Streamvale gives them the perfect opportunity to look and pet them. You can also let your child have a pony ride for a small price. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. My friend and I... More
