We went with our two year old on a day when the weather wasn't looking great. He loved feeding the animals, which all seemed placid and happy to be fed and petted. There are two outdoor play areas which were good, and also a nice open grass space with footballs and goals. Inside both of the play areas were great. The large bouncy castle type room genuinely is huge. We had nice toasties from the kitchen for lunch, though they are happy for picnics and allow them inside as well. First impression on arriving is that they may have oversold it in the brochure but that's not the case. Would definitely recommend it for a family day out.

This is a wonderful family pet farm.I took my daughters here for a day out and they loved it :)
There is a great selection of animals and you get a little bag of food on you're way in to feed them.Although it was a wet and rainy day the whole family still had a lovely time!
The indoor play area and the giant inflatable city was super for the kids..We couldn't get them away.
The food was tasty and efficient and the little shop was v.handy for drinks and snacks!
There is also a playground and pitch for the kids :)

A superb day out for the whole family :)
Highly recommend.

Went with my nieces and nephew on an okay day. Went in the gate and was very warmly received by Yvonne one of the owners. Family run. The children received bags of food and were allowed to head off. They could go in and rub the rabbits and chickens which was great experience for children to be able to do. Then they could walk around and feed the many different breeds of farm animals. Animals are very friendly and very well looked after. Despite the fact that the farm was busy there was no problem using the facilities as there was plenty to do here. I think the most impressive is the large inflatable attraction inside one of the buildings and kids have great fun in it. It is well supervised so adults can grab a quick tea and revive.

What is really impressive is that you can use the facilities to eat your own food if you bring your own picnic. This is a great idea for families who do not have large amounts of money and with the restaurant there you can get hot food and tea to supplement your picnic if you wish.

The kids had a great day and the animals was such a highlight we walked around the animals twice to see them again. Thanks very much to the great staff here.
