Went on a very wet day so thought it would be ideal. It was for children but not for adults. Thought it was very expensive to start with and if you wanted anything extra then that... read more

We've had a fantastic day here today 😃 Myself & husband have visited today with our two children, 5 & 16months. With our 5 year old son saying himself "mummy I cant believe what I've done today, rode a pony, held/stroked/fed guinea pigs, held an owl (his favourite part), played with other children in play barn & hay AND even...

We have had such a lovely day here. Got there about 11am and didn't leave until just before 4pm. We have 3 girls aged 5,3,3 and a boy aged 7 and all of them thoroughly enjoyed themselves. £39 for all six of us is a very reasonable day out but it was even better that we used tesco vouchers and...

Went on a very wet day so thought it would be ideal. It was for children but not for adults. Thought it was very expensive to start with and if you wanted anything extra then that was more money. The toilets were out of order so we had to use chemical toilets, ever tried changing a child's nappy in one... More

We went as adults as we had the combined ticket with the swannery and gardens. It is obviously aimed at children so we didn't spend long there, but we were impressed by the tithe barn which is huge and was even bigger when it was built. It's always fun to see animals, but I am not sure about the conditions... More

Entrance fee for adults was an astonishing £10.50 for a venue aimed at the younger generation. It stated that the farm was open until 5pm but the animals were put out in the fields at just gone 4pm and the remote control pirate boats were covered up before 4.30pm. Some of the pedal tractors were also in poor disrepair. I... More

I hated this attraction. My friend and I paid for a passport ticket which covered 3 attractions in Abbotsbury for a reasonable price. So I wouldn't have normally gone to this attraction except that it was part of a reduced ticket. We saw the animals were released into the surrounding fields from about 4.30pm onwards which was nice, we could... More

You can't really beat the setting of this Children's farm. Even on an overcast /rainy day it's quite stunning as you head down the hill from the car park. The stunning Tithe barn houses; a fantastic and (contrary to other reviewer's opinion!) clean soft play, bouncy castle, imaginative play building blocks, baby soft play and a number of other activities...

Very disorganised farm with no flow around it or atmosphere. Soft play area was poorly lit and dirty. Water boats didn't work. Steps to bouncy castle slide broken. Not many animals to see. The poorest thing of all though, there was no proper toilet facilities or baby change. Had to change my baby's dirty nappy on a changing mat on... More
