We have visited several times with the grandchildren who have re-named this "The Tractor Farm". The tractor ride to and from the farm is usually a highlight but we also enjoyed just walking. Looking forward to seeing the lambs soon. The calves are lovely too. Great picnic/play area next to the visitor centre. If the weather is not so good, we enjoy the indoor facilities too. Do ask for the picture hunt sheet for the young ones. A ticket is valid for a year, so this is really not expensive. We can also thoroughly recommend the cafe.

We spend a lot of time with our grandson and this is a great venue. Dressing up and decent play plus of course the farm. Great cafe and friendly staff team

We had an impromptu stop at the Museum of Rural Life on our way up to the islands between Xmas and New Year. It’s a nice place, with friendly staff and a fair amount to do both indoors and outdoors. Cafe was good too - decent value, with nice homemade broccoli soup. It’s split into two sites essentially, and the indoor museum had a quality collection of tractors that took me back to my childhood love of them! Some nice animals too on the outside part, which is in a farmhouse setting. Highland Cattle and a young calf with horses and pigs, appreciated by our (nearly) one year old! All in all, a good place for the family. Could be a bit grim if the weather isn’t playing ball as it’s a 10 minute walk (or tractor ride) between sites. Anyhow we had a nice time and as National Trust members enjoyed to free outing!

We had a brilliant day at the museum yesterday with plenty to do for both kids! We were greeted brilliantly by Nancy who couldn’t have been more helpful and informative and we planned our visit around her recommendations. My little boy is obsessed with tractors so there was plenty to keep him amused inside and out. Well worth a visit and we will definitely return!
