Free to visit, what more could you want. Plenty of farm animals to see and feed. It gets even better if you go on a day when the Birds of prey are out. We've been countless times. Great to fill an hour or so with the kids. Good little farm shop too and cafe.

Admission is free and there is the option to buy a bucket of carrot and cabbage to feed the animals. 1 bucket costs £1. We bought 4 buckets and wandered around the enclosures. There were sheep, pigs, goats, cows, chickens, donkeys, rabbits, Guinea pigs, golden... More

Farm was worn and the animals pens could do with a good clean and spruce up, felt quite sorry for the animals. Plants in the garden centre were dying. Went to James cafe, food was overpriced and average, very cramped space and staff didn't really know what they were doing. One positive was seeing the tiny piglets that hadn't long... More

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
