“Bit disappointed!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

This was our first visit for many years, I thought it was still quite a good place to take the youngsters, but was a bit disappointed by the lack of things for an adult to do CONSIDERING you have to pay £6.50 to get in...... my granddaughter however had a lovely time. It will be a long time before we go again.

“Great farm. Improving every time I visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Lovely Farm. The outdoor play area is big with lots of things for kids to play on. Indoor Soft play very good too.

Best to visit if dry as very limited what you can do if raining.

“Best soft play for little ones we have found”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Just back from a visit with our granddaughter, at 2 entry for her was free, she started on the pedal tractors and then went into the soft play, this is a fairly compact area but was ideal for up to five year olds with a tunnel 2 slides and a ball pit with a bridge. When we finally persuaded her to look at other things we paid a quick visit to the animals, this area is nicely constructed in one barn but very quick to do leaving time in our case for the trampolines and sand pit before lunch.
The cafe was busy but service was quick and food was good.

“Excellent for small children in all weathers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

First took two of our small grand daughters here in autumn 2012 when the weather was not at its best, but there was still lots to do. Whether its is indoors or outdoors, there is plenty of scope for play equipment - slides, trampoline, climbing apparatus, sand pits - all with safety in mind, or seeing animals.

We returned on the early May bank holiday when it was a beautiful sunny day and there were many families visiting. Plenty of parking and lots of picnic tables and benches. The cafe is reasonably priced and ice creams and drinks all round will not break the bank. We were able to be there late morning right through to closing time and a two and a half year old and a one and a half year old protested when it was time to leave even though they were well tired.

We rounded off the afternoon with a visit to Jack and Jill windmills on the nearby south downs, to enjoy the view.
