A lovely little farm with a great area for you to feed the animals. You can buy a bucket of veg for a pound and go round and feed the pigs, goats, sheep, cows and donkeys. There are also chickens and peacocks as well as some small animals. A lovely little shop too. Great for a couple of hours.

Cool open farm with some cool animals. Friendly goats, donkeys and geese etc plus some unexpected extras. The pick are the chipmunks, crazy animals! Nice veg buckets available to feed the animals and a reasonable garden nursery in site (though you will find stronger and more varied options). Great for kids and a nice and affordable coffee shop tucked away... More

We decided to go to James' cafe for lunch first. There are two rooms to eat in but in one children under 10 were not allowed! I find this unbelievable as... More
