We've been visiting regularly for over 10 years and it's never disappointing. Just enough animals and lovely for the kids to feed them. Free entry and only £1 for a bucket of animal food is incredible value. James' cafe is also excellent with home made food and wonderful "ultimate hot chocolate" and home made desserts. Well recommended.

Absolutely love this place. Been coming here for years and read some not so nice reviews so thought it was time I had my say! The staff in the farm shop are always happy and welcoming, what more can you want for a free day out. The kids love it and always leave happy. The coffee shop is always great.... More

They have donkeys, pigs, piglets, sheep, goats, geese, peacocks, turkeys, chickens, calves, chipmunks, various birds, ducks, rabbits, Guinea pigs, etc Free entry. Then we paid £1 for a bucket of feed for the animals plus 50p for grain for the birds. It is a... More

Farm animals for children to feed food provided to buy at shop. Local produce for sale at shop. Plants for sale too. Excellent cafe with home baking. Well worth a visit for young families.

My son and I had a ball here today. We fed the animals a bucket of carrots and cabbage. He loved the cows with their long tongues licking his hand as he fed them. Then we fed the chickens and geese. Just brilliant. However, we had to walk through 2 women smoking in the doorway, not what you expect with... More

We have visited the farm several times before and have always had a delightful time. As a treat we decided to eat in the coffee shop before visiting the animals. We noted that there was a family room recommended for young children so we tried here first, however, it was a very small room at lunch time and all of... More
