I went last week in half term with my 4 year old granddaughter, a friend and her daughter. We had a wonderful day, as always. There's just so much to see and do even without the special lambing action. We were lucky enough to see a lamb being born as well as lambs being bottle fed. The girls love the... More

Yesterday was Willows Activity Farm day. Met up with my sister and her daughter, me the wofe and our kids, 3 1/2 and 14 months. It was windy, sunny, cold, and its the middle of winter, though the lambing man definitely tried his hardest to pretend it was spring. Withing 10 minutes of being inside we were directed to a...

We went with our 5yr old and I believe she is at just the right age and although it was a great day out there was a lot of the farm that wasnt open (outside) and there was nothing about this on ur website so we wasnt there nearly as long as we planned. I believe u should make people... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us have your feedback. During the winter months, we move the animals that are normally in the central paddocks to a warmer area, this also allows the paddocks to be rested, plus this area is prone to flooding so it is safer for the animals to be moved and they are returned...

Great fun for all ages, animals to meet and greet, tractor rides, slides and got to meet Santa and his elves. The 3D film was good, best of all our 2 1/2 yr old niece and her 3 mth old sister had a so much fun....seasonal changes are made so best to have a look before you go

We have not been to Willows for a few years but used to go quite often and still have a number of friends who go regularly. The kids, especially ones between 2 and 10, love this place with the various animals, rides, things to climb and play with. It is a largely fair weather venue with the majority of the... More

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
