A great place to take small kids as they get to do all sorts of things. Petting fluffy bunnies, rides and fun stuff. Not great for young teenagers as it is geared up for the young but if you have toddlers this si the place to go.

I took my two grandchildren to Willow Farm on 22/12/16 having pre-booked on-line. As we drove into the farm they had decorated everything in a real Christmassy theme. We had pre-booked to make a cuddly toy and also to visit Santa. We made the cuddly toy first and were delighted with the quality of the toy and how easy they... More

Once you've stumped up over £50 to take your kids in (and that's just one parent, not two), this is an enjoyable place. Everything inside is free, so they can take their time with the animals and play on the excellent playground facilities. There are also vehicles to ride. The animal experiences are generally good as well. The food, well,... More

I was really surprised that we weren't allowed to take photos with Santa and were expected to pay about £20 for photos taken with him. This was not mentioned on the website when I booked or on our tickets. We paid £68 for 2 adults and 2 children to go to Willows Farm, so being asked to spend an extra... More

A little underwhelming after Christmas, as a number of attractions are closed and staff are taking down decorations etc - but there was plenty to keep a toddler entertained. He loved the shows in the Peter Rabbit theatre and also seeing all the animals. We didn't even make it to the sandpit or indoor play village, which he would have... More

Loved having the coffee point half way through to get much needed caffeine for grown ups Toy shop after seeing santa was magical Making the toy... More

Mon 19 Dec - just returned from a great day out despite the intermittent rain which may have kept some people at home as there were relatively few visitors and no queues. The Santa experience was really well done and the elves were fantastic! The concept of the child choosing his/her toy was very clever. There were plenty of fun... More

We sometimes have mixed feelings as 'seniors' about visiting places like this; they are fun but can be exhausting. Not the case here. We sat indoors to watch a brilliant 3D film. Watched an interesting show about the Alaskan Malamute. The children played briefly in the playground. Went to see the animals and held guinea pigs. Lunch in the covered... More
