Last Saturday was the first time I had visited this attraction. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and so did my friend and his daughter aged 15 years. We arrived around 11.00 a.m. and didn't leave until closing time as there was plenty to see and do. We also enjoyed the Victorian Fairground which took us back in time LOL We had a great laugh on the Waltzers, etc.
Don't forget if you book your tickets on line and print them out before you go, you save yourself money.
Well worth a visit.

It's always lovely to hear that adults and teenagers have enjoyed our attraction. Glad the funfair was such a hit and you all had an enjoyable day out. Top tip to book your tickets online to save 10%. Hope to see you again soon.

This place is just getting bigger and better everyday. Well worth the entry fee.
Good fun for all ages. The new penguin enclosure is small but they are good fun to watch.

Thanks for your positive comments, we're delighted you think we're good value for money. The new penguin enclosure is three times the recommended husbandry guidelines and has been designed to offer the best breeding environment for this endangered species. Many visitors and colleagues from other zoos think we have one of the best penguin enclosures in the UK. We're glad you enjoyed watching them swimming around. Hope to see you again soon.

We have been going to Folly Farm on an annual basis for 15+ years when on holiday. Even when it was much smaller the children enjoyed it thoroughly. It has always been a favorite. It has now developed. There is an outside play area and, a large indoor play area for cold days. A pets corner where children can stroke the animals. There is another area with farm animals. There is also a zoo with a wide selection of animals, well set out with information on each animal. They also have daily shows which are entertaining, an indoor old fashioned themed fair, tractor rides, demonstrations, go karts and birds of prey demonstrations. There are two restaurants both reasonably prices and a number of kiosks selling fast food and hot and cold drinks or snacks. If you wish to take your own food there are plenty of picnic tables both in the open and under cover. When you arrive you are given a leaflet with an itinerary of the days events to ensure that you don't miss anything. It is a full day of entertainment and i would recommend it to anyone.

Thanks very much for your review. We're delighted to hear you have seen Folly Farm grow over the last fifteen years you've been visiting and that you still enjoy it now as much as you did then. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

Just a note for other travellers as we'd hate for you to be disappointed but we no longer do the bird of prey demonstrations, these finished quite some time ago.

Having been to folly farm last year we were very excited to return again and we were not disappointed. The new addition with the penguins was excellent the best enclosure for penguins I have ever seen. We all really enjoyed the trip the vintage fun fair was great as was the zoo and when we visited the giraffes they were being feed and the animal keeper was giving a very interesting talk about the giraffes which we all found really good. The animal barn was very good with petting and feeding opportunities available. Overall another great family day out at folly farm. Would highly recommend a visit.

Delighted to hear we delivered another fantastic visit and you were impressed by our new penguin enclosure which we think is up there with the best in the UK too! Thank you for your feedback about the giraffe talk, I will pass this on to the zoo team. Hope to see you again next time you are visiting Wales.

We visited the farm during our holiday last week (June 2013) my 3 1/2 month old daughter was entertained looking at the animals for most of the morning before a well earned nap! Facilities were clean and plentiful lots of toilets/baby change and every area of the park was clean and tidy! My 2 year old niece also had a fantastic day and there really is plenty to do for all ages!! Us adults had a great time on the fairground ridesans go karts!!, and they were great value for money at only 50p or £1 a go for most rides considering the prices of rides near to home when the fair visits!! The gift shop has some lovely items and again we felt was reasonably priced!!! we all had a brilliant day and would highly recommend to anyone families and other just looking for a relaxed but fun day! Also to mentioned we used tesco summer clubcard exchange so for £5 tesco vouchers myself and my partner visited folly farm for free! Even better!!! although on reflection we would have happily paid £20+ for our visit!! :-) will definately be returning next time we visit Wales!!

Wow thank you very much for your positive review. We're delighted to hear you had a great day out with us and found everything to be good value for money. We're pleased to hear you think the funfair rides are reasonably priced compared to visiting funfairs. Great to hear you'll be back next time you are holidaying in Wales and we look forward to seeing you again then.
