“Ollie Just Loved It”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I took my Grandson Ollie to Woodside this month, he had a fabulous time. He loved all the animals, was fascinated to have them so close, and wore a smile from ear to ear especially with the chickens. There is a good variety of animals to see and we also attended the "Hands On" session which was one of the best events of the afternoon. He was able to hold a snake, a baby chicken, amongst others and although couldn't touch, met a beautiful Owl.
He also climbed on and pretended to ride 3 tractors, played in the well designed play area, and just before we left, enjoyed a Lolly whilst sitting in a train which moved around and made suitable noises, for 50p! A great place to visit.

Another great review - thank you so much! We're delighted that your grandson had such a good time and got to meet our beautiful owl, whose name is also Ollie - what a coincidence!

“Fab day out for the kids (and me!)”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

I was invited to a friends daughter's 4th birthday party and as I don't have my own children, I borrowed my 5 year old Godson for the day and he had a fab time!

There are loads of animals, from goats, llamas, horses and chickens (whose eggs you can collect and buy yourself), to snakes, owls, chinchillas and iguanas to name but a few plus the most fluorescent pink flamingoes I've ever seen! Everything is outside so good weather is preferrable but there is also an inside soft play area if there are showers!

The food in the cafeteria was not great but what you would expect from a place like this - basic jackets with a couple of fillings or paninis/toasties, that kind of thing. Make sure you take plenty of food and drink (especially drink - a tiny fruit shoot cost £1.30!). As my godson was a party guest, he was fed and watered for most of the day but I would certainly take a packed lunch when I go back.

The kids were able to go on a tractor ride around the park and also got up close and personal with the animals - there is a meet and greet session twice a day (I think) and my godson got to hold a baby chick, a corn snake and an iguana and to stroke a chinchilla and have his pciture taken with a barn owl. You can also buy various bags of feed to give the animals on the way round but I don't know the cost as these came as part of the kids party package.

There is a gift shop selling toys and gifts as well as homemade jams/chutneys and various other goods you might find in a farm shop, including the freshly collected eggs!

There is also a small funfair area with a couple of rides and a picnic area.

“Take the kids”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We have taken our grandchildren to the farm & park a few times recently and we have been fairly happy everytime.The farm has allot of animals to see to keep the yougsters intrested,however, there is few oppurtunities for interaction. The barn experience is good and well set up, but, there are not enough animals for the kids to see & touch. On the whole the other items for the kids are good from a carousel, trampolines, crazy golf and an indoor play area ( god send as it always seems to rain!). Admission is reasonable especially as it includes the cost of the rides etc.The attraction is a little tired and could do with a spruce up, but, on the whole value for money.
