I've been here many times in the last year. My daughter is now 18 months and she loves it here. It is really hands on, you can get close to the animals, holding the rabbits, chicken and guinea pigs. You can feed the lambs and enjoy tractor rides. There is plenty to do for kids (and adults!) of all ages... More

I Used to care for children from large, local towns, this is a great place for them to learn about country life in a fun way. Now that I'm retired I miss these visits. Great local attraction in lovely countryside. Hands on practice at Cow milking(wooden) and lamb feeding( real ones)

Visited Hall Hill Farm with my 5-year old. This is the second visit in 9 months and neither visit disappointed. There is a fair number of activities to keep the young ones entertained....holding chicks, rabbits & Guinea pigs, donkey rides, feeding animals from typical farm to llamas & alpacas, soft play, outdoor play areas, bouncy pillows, tractor and barrel train...

Great chance for young kids to feed and appreciate farm animals. Rabbits to pet (farm??) goats to feed, lambs to give milk, donkey rides, pigs, Jersey calves, birds, turkeys, peacocks to view and a large inflatable/play area to ensure the kids are all asleep for the car ride home. Prices are around 7.50 pounds each which is a little steep... More

We visited the farm ( again ) recently and had a great time. The boys in particular love this place with the tractor ride and quad bike ride being favourite. There's also a shed with mini tractors to ride. There's a soft play in the shed too good for rainy days. There are informative talks and hands on activities with... More

My first visit with very experienced 3 year old granddaughter who was my 'tour guide'. Cost not too bad for an adult £7.95 but felt it was a bit steep for very young children at £7.45. Good sign posting and great car park and considering it is a 'farm' immaculately kept, the toilets were especially clean. It had rained heavily... More

This was our second visit to Hall Hill and it is still without doubt one of the best farms we have been to. We were a little worried on arriving seeing four coaches in the car park but despite these school visits the staff organised everything very well and there was never any overcrowding or problems seeing, holding and feeding...

First chance for the four year olds to see pigs, cows, lambs, rabbits, hens, ducks, turkey, wallaby and more. However as with small children there is an out door and indoor play areas which they enjoy. If you intend to visit more than once it's worth taking the annual family package. We took picnics but there is a cafe.
