Visited twice during our recent holiday in Cornwall using the family ticket. Great for young children who enjoy all that is on offer. The play barn is ideal when the weather is wet. Parents can enjoy a coffee whilst the children use the slides, ball pool etc. Pony rides available at extra cost. A chance to see lambs, calves, pigs, llamas & ponies & goats. There is also an opportunity to see the cows being milked with a viewing gallery and an excellent commentary.

Two negatives - only one member of staff manning the entrance and also looking after the shop and ice creams (not surprising the staff were hassled and unfriendly). The cafe had small selection of hot and cold food but staff were not friendly.

As a farmers wife it's great to see an attraction about farming and allowing the public to be a part of it. Adults and kids loved it

Dairyland does have a slight feeling of 'past it's best' about it. It is expensive for what it is and I would suggest that for the older kids it will be a none event.

The only way we made it feel like we were getting value for money was to take to full advantage of their 7 day return for free scheme. Pay once and then come and go as you please for 7 days.

There is no point coming back to do pony rides, pat pets, bottle feeding or to see the cows get milked as this can be done in day one. We used the 7 day pass to use the indoor play area (Bull pen) and the climbing frames, trampolines, zip line, etc outside, but even these are limited in their appeal.

If you are going just for the day and are not planning to return I wouldn't recommend it at all.

Went here over the Easter Break, paid £50 for a family of five and we were so disappointed we left after half an hour. The place felt generally run down and tired, there were very few animals, the play equipment was basic and limited and there were several things you had to pay extra for (pony rides and even JCB diggers, motorised cars and robots) which, when you've paid that much to get in, is inexcusable. Having visited many family attractions around the country over the years, I have to say I've never felt so ripped off.

Every time we get down to Cornwall we make a point of visiting DairyLand Farm World. They often have multi-day tickets so we can go a couple of times during our visit. There is so much for the kids to do. Never gets boring.
