The usual family farm activities but with nice indoor play area for wet weather contingency. Held my daughter's 4th birthday here and it was perfect..helped that being Feb it was really quiet and almost had the place to ourselves. Recommend for a family day out.

Thank wozzie

My wife booked a party for our daughters 4th birthday. It was a party with a tractor ride and pony ride. For our party it was our hosts first time going it alone. She showed great confidence. All the kids had a great time on the tractor but the star attraction was the pony rides.

We were informed that there was some spare time was given a choice of handling the rabbits or another ride on the pony. Elise chose the pony rides and they still had time to handle 'Steve' the rabbit.

After that the kids went off for food. The food was basic, but judging but the silence form a party of a dozen 4 year olds they must have been enjoying in. After that the kids were given free reign of the farm.

I saw lots of smiley faces and heard lots of laughter. Elise had a great time and that made us happy

We visited the farm today with three children one 5 year old and two eight year olds...we all had a fantastic time so pleased we ignored other reviews which did not do the farm justice the staff are all very polite,friendly and extremely helpful,the price of entry is fantastic for the amount of activities that are laid on where else can you take the kids and let them feed lambs,pigs,donkeys etc,ride quad bikes,go on a tractor ride ,go on a real fire engine ride (and get to squirt the hose) try archery,pet rabbits,use a bungee trampoline ,go ice skating,go go- carting, pony riding,woodland walks not to mention miniature golf adventure playground and ,and indoor play barn all for £10.00 The food was all of a very good quality and not over priced,we arrived at 10;30 am and only just managed to get through all the activities by 5pm!!! I agree the arial runway was out of action but seriously I cannot believe people are nit picking and being so unduly critical.If you miss an activity they are all repeated later in the day so no need to miss a single one of them,
we will visit again
thank you so much to all at the farm keep up the good work.

We last visited Thurleigh 6 years ago and had good memories of it. Unfortunately when we visited today with our 10 year old grandaughter & 7 year old grandson, we were all very disappointed. The zip slide was broken! Quad bikes were good, but with £10 entrance fee, didn't think it was right to be charged 50p each for extra turns, especially as there were not many children queuing up! Feeding the lambs was good but very short! Apart from climbing frames and crazy golf, there wasn't much to do. Having only one organised event at one time was poor. There should have been 2 or 3 activities at once, especially as it was the Easter school holidays!
