Indoor soft play was great.

Went for a birthday celebration. Easy to get too. Quite expensive for one day but was really good. We got food there which was pricy but good. Maybe a picnic next time.

I suggest plan ahead and book on-line it's cheaper (a last minute decision to go there cost £20 a child and £19 each adult) there is a variety of things for the children to do, so £20 for the child is OK but £19 for each adult! Take a picnic as food is expensive and not very good. There are... More

Had a family outing to willows on Easter Sunday for the easter egg hunt. Once you have paid your entry fee there is nothing more to pay except if you require food. There are picnic areas on grass and under cover. We arrived at 10.15 and left at 5.30 and found plenty to do.

We've been members of willows for a couple of year now and the kids still love it. We can go for a full day or just a few hours. On wet days the soft play area is brilliant and for finer weather there's tons to do outside. Tractor ride, peter rabbit garden, animals, bouncy castles, small fun fair rides, adventure... More

This farm is so much more - it is active and fun and there is so much to do once you are there - rides and exploration all on a theme of Peter Rabbit and friends- the cafe replicates his house and Mr McGregor's garden is great fun with huge radishes to collect in the barrow. We went- three adults... More

I brought my children here with family. My kids (1 and 3) had a fab time and enjoyed feeding animals, playing on the bouncy castles and seeing Peter rabbit. Definitely worth going to on a nice day.

Visited Willows farm with 3 children, 4 and under and 3 adults. We had a great day and the children enjoyed every minute. Especially Tristan the Tractor, so much to do , all staff were lovely and so much to pack in, everything included once you have paid the admission price! Would definitely recommend!
