Need to reconsider ticket policy
Jun 2021 • Family
This is a lovely farm and beautiful place. I fully support them and always love comming here. But I find their policy on no refunds or non tranceferables harsh and unfair. I paid for 4 kids and 1 adult today. My car exhaust fell off last night so I could not go today. It was at the mechanics this morning 8:30 am. I called at 9am and had to leave a message. I followed it up with an email. I have had no call back. I got an email reply stating tickets are not refundable or transferable. I totally accept no refunds but I was hoping I can come on another day hopefully. Despite today's rain I would have still come if my car was not brocken. Would this policy still stand if one of us had covid and needed to self isolate?

Beautiful farm
May 2021 • Family
Such a lovely farm perfect for younger children. The brand new play equipment looks great and the farm shop has a range of drinks, snacks & toys. Nice range of animals including donkeys, goats, sheep, tortoises and more! A volunteer run farm with animals that have come from rescue backgrounds such as the owls which are so beautiful. All of the animals are in paddocks that also have inside living for when they want to take themselves away or seek shelter. Will definitely be coming back!

For children, not grumpy old men!
Aug 2020
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!

Small but lovely
Aug 2020 • Family
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.

Not a farm it’s a animal enclosure - felt dumb
Jul 2020 • Family
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.

"Fabulous Day"
Aug 2019
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.

Small but lots to keep little ones occupied and happy.
Jun 2019 • Family
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!

A most enjoyable visit
Apr 2019 • Family
We went with our two grandchildren and their parents on the recent Bank holiday and very much enjoyed our first visit to this attraction. It was comfortably busy but there was plenty of parking available. We joined a small queue for tickets and purchased some feed for several of the animal areas. Note that each type of animal requires a different feed.

On show during our visit were: goats; calves;baby cows; owls of several different types; mongeese; piglets; ducks; chickens; lambs; shetland ponies; rabbits; guinea pigs, tortoises to name but a few. The animals were all of a suitable size for the small children to view and enjoy. Standards of cleanliness and exhortations of the necessity of washing hands were high and there are plenty of basins available. However, it was sometimes difficult to find a soap dispenser that functioned correctly.

At the finish of the tour on which we probably spent around ninety minutes, there is a collection of small bikes, pedal cars etc which were eagerly pounced on and ridden around with much enjoyment. There is also a good picnic area with lots of tables, chairs and umbrellas.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the visit and can recommend it to others with small children looking for an educational fun day out.

Farm!
Apr 2019 • Family
I didn’t feel that the animals looked in the best state. There were only goats, ponies, piglets and chickens and owls. There were sheep but not sure if they belong to the farmer. If your going to run a farm you need to make sure the animals look in good health. Too shabby. It had a play area but so does the park. I would only return to see if the animals looked any better.

Reasonable price and only a couple of hours
Jun 2018 • Family
You get what you pay for really, unlike other more expensive "farms" but it's fine if you have younger children with shorter attention span. Ours were more interested in the playground than the animals but did enjoy feeding them. You can buy the food for 50p a bag. There is a cafe where we left the great grandmas to have a cup of tea and cake as they couldn't walk all the way around. It isn't open all year round so check first if it's open.
