We went as a large extended family group and were delighted to find a troop of Morris dancers who our little ones joined in with.

On the actual farm there was lots of gentle fun activities including milking the cows, feeding the chickens and scratching the muddy pig.

As a wheelchair user, I can say its not the most accessible place I've ever been to, the slopes are pretty steep in places and we needed a few hefty men as ballast off the back a few times but it added to the fun.
Of course, if you we're a bit less adventurous you could sit centrally and still have lots to see in the geese, baby rabbits and new calves.

The honey tasting and wax candle making was great- bought several pots which is still being consumed readily on our toast

The cafe, outside the farm, is a real find. It's really something special. So often visitor attractions get naff food. Not here! It's all freshly put together. Local stuff mainly and to our great delight our cousin got gluten free bread sandwiches and no fuss.

Great to see where war time farm was filmed, a good time for everyone- there a good 5 hours.
Recommend to all families who enjoy simple, varied things to do and share time together.

We went here last weekend and had a great afternoon. Staff on the farm are very helpful and there is lots of information to read. The house is set in the wartime and gives a good insight into life at that time. Lots of babies there when we went and the chickens wandering around clucking to be fed.
The country park has excellent walks through woodland, meadows and foreshore. The kids loved the adventure park (so did we) and drinks and ice cream was very reasonably priced too.
All in all a very good day spent there, there is pay and display car parking but if you visit the farm (£7 for adults and £4 for 5-16) you get the £3 all day parking refunded off of the entrance fee.

Does everyone know there are lovely facilities in the park as well as the farm to visit. BBQs that can be rented for the afternoon and open spaces for family get togethers, a game of rounders, a water fight etc etc.
