Just a short trip here for us, we wanted a bit of fresh air so paid to park and followed the Discovery Trail. It was well signposted and just long enough for little legs. £2.50 was good value to park and get a leaflet/map too. We did use the cafe afterwards which wasn't the best, no menu on our table so ordered drinks and hoped they wouldn't be too expensive! But overall a nice way to spend a couple of hours.

The deer safari was lovely. If you like animals you'll love it. A tractor pulls a farm trailer with cushioned bench seats. The commentry was interesting.
We arrived at the deer fields and the deer came over to be fed. We each had a bag of food to hand feed them. The deer were able to put their heads through the bars so they were very close, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was £10 for an adult for the 45min experience and well worth it. The guide said to come back in June as well to see baby deer.
Wrap up warm though as the trailer is open.
Hand washing facilities afterwards. All seemed very covid safe.
A review said it was run down, but it is a normal working farm.
Good for all ages of animal lovers. Easy parking and a small cafe.

Holiday visit with a 5yr old. Pre-booked on line and where then just asked for our name on entry. The guy at reception was very friendly.
The deer safari was a great experience with the deer literally eating out of your hand and the young women who was the tour guide was very good. A lovely experience.
The farm element was OK, quite rustic/more of a working farm set up rather than a petting farm. Agree with dome of the previous comments about so d animals being quite squished in abd yes the alpacas teeth looked huge but think it also had a cleft lip which prob made it look worse. Bottle feeding the lambs was fun.... It was quite quiet so we got to feed 4. There was a distinct lack of signage to point you in the direction of things.... We only found the calf barn as heard as someone else say about it and head that way. There are also no signs around telling you the time of things like egg collecting, lamb feeding etc apart from on a desk in frobt of reception which we missed on entry....vest to take a photo of this oh your phone when going in.
The cafe was nice, simple menu of sandwiches, jkt potatoes, pasties etc and nice home made cakes. Alsdi free chilled tap water which was good to have.

I was very upset at the appearance of some of the animals in the “farm yard” .the cows especially were packed into small areas,laid on top of piles of mucky beds,they had not been mucked out for ages. These cows never go out on grass and are being fattened up indoors ,is this good humane farming? And yet people are being charged to come and see these as if it’s a “petting “ experience alongside rabbits etc in cages and tortoises in small pens .
Young calves were there on a contract for weaning prior to slaughter or “finishing” before onward sale or slaughter.they looked unwell ,5 to a pen and one isolated calf appeared very sick.
Lots of lambs were indoors in hot weather,with no mothers in sight, if so many lambs were orphaned then lambing practices must be terrible.I believe they were there just for commercial purposes of “ lamb feeding time “ for visitors .
The alpaca had a terrible underbite,exceedingly long teeth and needed vetinary dentistry ,this is not acceptable in well cared for alpacas.
The pigs were in an unkempt rocky corner where only nettles grew. As a farmers daughter I am well aware of good husbandry on farms but this is not it and yet it is opening to families as if it is a good “working farm”
Ponies and goats looked healthy and I did not go on the deer safari so cannot comment on that . I left very upset at what I saw and would recommend that if you do visit you really look at the animal welfare and ask questions of the staff about the animals you see.

Really disappointed in our visit. We booked online for the deer Safari which was £32.00 for two adults and two children. We turned up and the lady said if we want to see the other small animals and use the park it was an extra £18.00. It was so basic and tired looking it was definitely not worth the money. We also had to pay for goat food. Where we live there are many farm parks that are far better and you pay £40 for two adults and two children that include everything and you can have a full day out. We arrived at 10.15 and left at 12.15. That’s including a picnic that we took.
This place is too over priced for a family “day out” which consisted of two hours.

The deer Safari was really good and the guy who took the tour was really friendly and knowledgeable.

A lovely day out was only spoiled by the ridiculously expensive tickets to go on the deer safari. My daughter does not have a lot of spare cash so she was pleased that the entrance was just £2.50 per adult. Happily she ordered two tickets for the deer safari for her and her partner, her little boy went free. She was shocked to find out the price was £7.50 per adult. £15 in total. That is probably why the entrance fee is so low, they make their money on the deer safari. A price of £5 would have been more than enough.

This place is titled as a farm park, I have young children 5 and 1, booked the farm and deer safari. The deer safari was good, interesting and an unusual experience.

The rest of the place is very disappointing, it cost me £42 to get in including the safari and my youngest was free, there is no play equipment for younger ones, lots of older children running around and causing havoc on stuff not at all aimed at them.

Broken toy tractors, unloved play equipment and benches. There’s probably a total of 30 minutes of animal look around here, that’s it not worth the entry price at all.

My husband ordered three hot drinks (all small) three pieces of cake, that cost nearly £20. 😳

To top it off we came out and out car had been hit, not the farms fault, but they weren’t exactly interested.

A very expensive two hours, save your money, there so much to do in this area this place isn’t worth the spend.

We visited with a young child and were pretty disappointed at the value for money. There were a few animals in the barns to look at which didn’t take very long and the 45min deer safari lasted about 30mins. It cost us around £40 for a family of 3 and really wasn’t worth it. Some areas are pretty run down and look like they haven’t had much tlc. As a family we’ve visited cheaper farms where there is much more to do and see.

Holidaying nearby in Sandringham and thought we’d give this place a go.

I must admit we hadn’t looked at prices before we arrived but was shocked to find to do the park and the safari for a family of 4 was £50. It’s just too much I’m afraid for the size of the farm park.

We didn’t do the safari so I can’t comment on that as we couldn’t justify the price. We paid £26 for 4 of us. The park itself is pleasant enough but very small - can easily be done in an hour or two depending on how long the children take to go around. Looks a little tired in most of the animal places although the goats are extremely friendly.

Staff were lovely and the food was excellent.

It was a pleasant way to spend a few hours - but having visited quite a few farm parks I found this overpriced for the contents and certainly there are better ones for less money although possibly not in a high tourist area like Snettisham.

We arrived at reception to pay, a group came in behind us and were served before us, despite 5 people on reception talking amongst themselves. My husband was about to walk out, when they actually addressed us. When we went to buy a coffee, advertised as barista coffee, when I challenged this as the coffee was filter Kona coffee but barista prices, they tried to tell me otherwise.. At the same time a family came in with a person using a motorised wheelchair, when they asked about drinking inside told " not allowed" . It was raining outside, but no alternative offered, no suggestion of how he could join his group for refreshments. As I work with people with a physical disability I was less than impressed with the responses. Staff need to have some more customer service training. Some of the barns with feeding experiences did not have hand washing facilities and signage poor.
Overall, disappointing as we were expecting more and better.
