I have visited the craft shops on a number of occasions and have bought pottery, but generally the items sold in all of the craft shops are expensive. This time I brought my two grandsons to the Petting Farm and was very disappointed. For £17.25 we saw a paltry range of animals that in most cases can be seen just as well in surrounding fields for free - all the animals can be seen in a 10 minute walk around the farm area. On top of that, visitors are offered the opportunity to pay to feed the animals! The boys did enjoy feeding the lambs, but at the time we visited they were pretty large, ditto the 'chicks' in the small animal nursery. The play barn is fun for younger children but they have to wear socks and, yes, these can be bought - for 50p. However, several bare-footed parents were walking in the play area and the socks I bought were filthy by the time my grandson had finished playing. We went to the coffee shop where a plain cheese sandwich was being sold for £4.80. Children's lunch boxes containing a drink, apple crisps and very small roll, were better value at £3.75, but would only satisfy a toddler. Mini-golf costs £15.60 for a family of four, and then there are the fairground rides for which tokens have to be bought... (I did not dare venture into this area).
On the whole I would not recommend families to visit this attraction unless they want to spend, spend, spend .
