My sons aged 3 and 4 love Dairyland. There's a lot I enjoy about it too but...... Why do you not do half price return tickets for those of us who live in the area and may want to come back but not within 7 days? Many of your competitors do it...Springfields and Trethorne for example. I don't want to buy a season ticket for over £135 as I am unlikely to come enough times to make it worth it.... But I may like to come back at least once more and don't see why I should pay full price.... Also why were we charged more for our 4 year old who's just over a metre tall than our 3 year old when they went on exactly the same things?
One final point... The jacket potato I had at lunch was not good value for money... The outside was over cooked and the inside so dry and floury I couldn't eat it....
Just a tad disappointed as our day out cost us almost £60 including lunch and if we came again we'd be expected to fork out that much again...

I took my child here , but since then I have reasearched the dairy industries lies. welfare. If people knew the real truth about dairy production they would reconsider drinking it again. The only way for a cow to constanstly produce milk is for it to be made pregnant repeatedly. When the calves are less than a week old, sometimes even earlier they are removed from their mothers and either shipped off, killed, or cramned into veal crates. The mother cow is a sentient being that knows fear, sorrow just like us humans, the sound of a cow having it's baby taken away will stay with you for years. The farmers will argue till they are blue in the face that it's not like this, but after all it's all about making a profit, at the expense of a poor animal. So please consider this if you are planning a visit. If you have any compassion at all avoid it. The facts are there!

We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your visit and respect your opinion on dairy farming. Contrary to your thoughts however, animal welfare is our priority and we are above and beyond UK animal welfare legislation. We are fully aware that there can be issues within the dairy industry, particularly those using intensive methods, but our message is clear - we support free range fun - for animals as well as humans. We are constantly educating and encouraging with regards to animal-friendly farming methods. We would be more than happy to give you more information about our animals and how we ensure their welfare if you'd like it?

We decided to go to Dairyland due to the weather. It has a massive indoor play area perfect in the rain. Our 2 year old loved everything. The play areas both in and outside, the animals and pictures of cows everywhere. You aren't retry much left to your own devices to use the attractions which I would say would be fine up to 8 years old before some of the park feels too small for bigger kids. Best thing was the ticket is valid for 7 days from purchase so on another rainy morning we returned free of charge, excellent idea and long may it continue to be available. We will return next year when back on holiday if this offer is still running.

We took our 2 kids - 2.5 yo and 4 yo and they loved it. From the indoor play centre to milking Clarabelle, watching lots of cars get milked and then helping feed the baby animals - they loved every minute!

Great place, lots to do for bubas, toddlers and young children. Really good museum, variety of animals/birds, play area and soft play. (Best we've visited with 1yr old twins) Fab facilities, friendly staff, good value for money. Pay for the day and you get a 7 day pass.
