farm okay for a quick morning/afternoon out. wouldnt recommend the cafe though, very expensive and you cant eat your own food, you have to sit in the picnic area which is okay in the summer but when you are buying hot drinks and sandwiches for adults as children have packed lunch they expect you to leave the kids in the picnic area while you eat in the cafe! staff in cafe rude! sticky tablecloths, ok we know its a farm but cleanliness must be 100%..

We are regular vistors here, although it is only a small farm so probably not worth travelling too far for...lots of animals to see, cheap entrance/animal food & a play area too. Nice food in the resturant & not too over pricey and friendly staff too. Perfect day out for little ones

I have been to the farm a few times but on this visit September 2012 I was amazed at the improvements that had been made, interactive voice boxes to help indentify the animals and the way the staff interacted with the visitors. It helped that it was a sunny day and was able to access all parts of the farm. Somewhat surprised to read some of the negative reveiws I wonder what the agenda was there?. Well done to all involved with farm
