Although the weather wasn't the best, probably because its height above sea level and the wonderful Great British summer!
The Park was easy to find and very well signposted. The entrance fee £17 for two adults and our 2 year old son was very reasonable.
It is very well laid out and there is plenty to do for children of all ages, including driving mini tractors. The 'Touch Barn' aka petting shed is where the very helpful and professional staff will let your little ones hold the rabbits and guinea pigs. There is an area in the corner of the shed where you can wash your hands after handling.
The new woodland conservation area has been cleverly laid out it also provides good shelter on a cold windy/wet day!!
There are demonstrations going on most of the day from sheep shearing to milking goats. Although a little short, the tractor farm safari tour is worth doing (included in the admission price).
As with all places like this you are a captive market for the cafe, which is predicably a little pricey, £2.40 for a 'large' Americano and £1.60 for a small tea. So its worth bringing a picnic as there are plenty of picnic tables on the site.
I would have liked to have seen more produce for sale in the shop as on our visit there was one small cabinet with a small selection of prepacked sausages on display. Perhaps rare breed beefburgers or goats cheese from the resident stock?!
Be prepared to queue for the baby change area, perhaps another toilet block could be added, as I've never had to queue for the gents before....!
If/when we return to the area we would visit again.
