Went there with my wife, step-daughter and step-grandson, aged 5, during the Covid restrictions. You have to book on-line at the moment, which as an official grumpy old git was hard work, but I got there. Seen through the eyes of an old git there wasn't much there, a few goats, budgies, calves, piglets, donkeys, sheep, ducks, geese, rabbits, guinea pigs and owls, but the place isn't designed for me. My 5 year old grandson loved it. Loved being able to fuss the animals, loved getting hands on with most of them, loved feeding them by hand, loved the play area and went round the place twice. The look of joy and wonder in his little face soon countered my in-built grumpiness. Lets face it, the place is designed for children, so the thoughts of a grumpy 70 year old codger don't come into it!

A great place for a visit with small children. I went with my 10 month old son who was delighted to feed goats and sheep (who fed from his hands) and watch the free range chickens. There's a great picnic area and small playground. I do agree with a previous commentator that it was strange to see large owls in small enclosures, however without knowing how they are cared for I would reserve judgement. The geese do have a pond, it is hidden from sight. In these Covid times, you just ring to be let in after the allotted arrival time. Very friendly staff.

I went with my 8 month old baby on a hot day in July and was very disappointed with the farm. While I appreciate £4 is very cheap I would prefer to pay more and see the animals in better living conditions. The ducks and geese did not have a pond. The little research I’ve done on keeping ducks in your back yard explained how ducks at least need a small space to wet their backs as it’s natural for them to be in wet lands. There is a pond at the farm but has coi carp in it with a ‘designated smoking bench’ next to it (although I saw mum’s smoking basically on their prams in the cafe area.) The owls just felt very sad these magnificent creatures that can’t fly the cages see so small compared to how big these beautiful creatures are. The rest just felt like it was an enclosure not a farm - there was nothing farm like about it just animals put on show in a really dated way. There was no information about the animals, you just walked around the enclosure looking at these poor creatures. It just felt sort of dumb.

Just got home from what was a superb day. An annual event at the Farm Vintage Vehicles Show. Children play ground with lots of peddle cycles, cars and more. Enjoyed seeing the animals and bought an African snail called it slime, i have wanted one for a long time. Very reasonably priced bbq, fries, jacket potato with a very tasty vegie chilli, more options available. Excellent choice of cakes, yummy. The live music was loud and enjoyed by all. Thank you to all the volunteers, we will be back next year. Well worth a visit.

Not expensive. Friendly people and animals. Food 50p a bag to feed them and they didn't bite. Our grand daughter spent half an hour herding the free ranging chickens back into their hen enclosure which they could go in an out of via a small opening. They were very nice chickens and didn't mind a 5 year old bossing them about! There was a bouncy castle, play area and things to ride on. Lots of tables and chairs and a small cafe. A perfect place to wile away a couple of hours with grandchildren!
