Animal interaction at it's best. See all the funny antics of our friendly animals, you will get to feed, pet and even hold some of them. Over 50 species of animals to see, an 1850s cottage, a nature walk and fairy trail, a large outdoor and indoor play area and a soft play toddler area, so there is something for eeryone. Lots to do throughout the year: Summer season runs from March to Sept (please check our website for exact dates), Easter Egg Hunts Easter Sat, Sun and Mon at 3pm, Halloween Spooktastic Event during the mid term break, and foe the month of December the farm is transfered into Ireland's Lapland.

Amazing selection of animals, which we could feed and touch. There are both indoor and outdoor play facilities for children and lots of nice walk ways for all age groups Our favourites were the maze and the zip wire

Ok, so I was impressed with the welfare of the animals and the keeper chap was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He let me hold the 5 day old baby goat which was utterly fab. Gorgeous puppies, 2 separate litters which they buy and sell on...More
