One of the best places to visit in kent.
Loads to do for adults and kids and a very good price to get in.

What a lovely place, fantastic value for money.

The animals are well cared for, the staff are knowledgeable and friendly and there is so much to do. There are plenty of play areas for children but also lots of educational areas too. The whole place flows well so you don't miss anything or end up retracing your steps, and the paths are good enough to mean it's a good place to go even on a rainy day.

Although we went with young children there were several people there without children and I think it's a great place to go for all ages.

I can't think of one bad thing to say and that is very unlike me!

During my recent holiday to the UK. I had pretty much resigned to the fact, that spending £10 to get into an attraction will would only occupy you for an hour or two. This place is the exception! We were here nearly all day! We arrived at lunch, and had to leave because it was closing!

The rare breeds centre is fantastic! They are a charity helping out handicapped adults and also employ them to help out at the farm. They have a great array of animals which you can interact with, all of which are rarer breeds of that particular animals.

The pig racing was great! We didn't get time to take the tractor trailer ride. But did look round all the other animals. There are some walks as well. They have huge adventure playgrounds for the kids, and even one for the adults as well! A don't touch the floor obstacle course in the woods was great fun!

This place is huge, you go in, and just keep discovering more and more!

We had lunch at the restaurant there. Which is actually more of a cafe, as you have to help yourself. The food was pretty decent, nothing special but filled a hole! This place is a little in the middle of nowhere. Normally attractions can be greedy and charge you the earth for food and drink, as you have no where else to go, but this place was reasonable.

Could not recommend this place any more to any animal or farm lovers out there. At the time of writing, there isn't a single negative review on tripadvisor about this attraction There is a good reason for that, it's awesome!

We took our grandchildren and loved it. Clean and well looked after animals, loads of stuff for under10's including pig racing, play areas. A good day out and the restaurant was reasonable.
