Owner description: Stockley Farm Park specialises in 'hands-on' experiences for all the family, ranging from bottle feeding our baby goats and lambs to grooming the ponies, going on wildlife safaris and cuddling the rabbits and guinea pigs in Pets' Corner - There is a different experience to get involved with every half an hour! Come rain or shine there is plenty of fun to be had, with activities taking place undercover if necessary. The kids can burn off steam in our large indoor play barn and outdoor play area and you can enjoy freshly made hot food and sweet treats in The Willow Barn Tearoom. On hot sunny days you can also enjoy tasty treats from Daisy's Ice Cream Parlour and our BBQ.If you fancy a stroll, why not head out on to our nature trail to discover the wild side of our organic farm? As an organic working farm, farming both dairy cattle and arable crops, visitors have the opportunity to watch the cows being milked every afternoon and enjoy seasonal activities which will take you 'behind the scenes' of British farming.Come and join us for lots of fun on the farm - whatever the weather!

“Great day out.”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

Visited with my daughter who's 9 and nephews who are 18 months. Great day was had by all ... so much to see and do and the staff were great.

Food was disappointing as nearly everything had sold out including the homemade cake! Will just have to visit again.

“Thank you for a fantastic day out!!”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

I haven't visited Stockley Farm since I was a child myself and I have to say it was even better than I remembered it! My 2 year old son absolutely loved the fact that he got to go on a tractor trailer to the actual farm which was a great start to the day! There is so many different activities to do throughout the day including feeding the lambs and so many different areas to keep the little ones entertained! Have to disagree with other reviewers who have said it is expensive as having been to many other 'cheaper' farms you get your money's worth here and it is definitely worth paying a few pound more!! Everything that is sold on site is exceptionally reasonably priced which is great to see! The tea room was great and the dairy ice cream was absolutely fabulous!

Having said all of this I have to say the best asset to this place is the staff that work here! They all do a fabulous job and are great with children! Every single member of staff I came into contact with couldn't do more for us.. They tried there upmost to ensure all the children got to bottle feed the lambs.. and were extremely entertaining to watch during the sheep racing!

So thank you so much for a fabulous day.. We will definitely be back very soon!

“Brilliant brilliant day out”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

Visited on a long weekend as a family and with friends.Kids aged 3 to 6 loved it, specially bottle feeding,milking competition,zipwire and play area. It's not too spread out , is very very clean and organised. Brilliant value for money considering there's so much to do /see without feeling over wrought. The tractor drive is a great touch too.

“Kept the kids happily occupied for hours”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Stockley Farm Park is a great place for the whole family, but is an especially great way to keep smaller children entertained for hours on end. It’s the “hands on” experience that we found so appealing, especially the little ones, who get to bottle feed the baby lambs and goats, and can even try their hand at grooming the horses. In the Pets Corner, there are cute little guinea pigs and rabbits that little kids can hold and cuddle.

The one big plus about Stockley Farm Park, is that it’s open all year round, and they get around the rainy weather, by providing all sorts undercover fun activities, and they have a big indoor play barn as well, where kids can play about to their heart’s content.

The cafe provides tasty hot meals (my husband was a fan of the Turkey bap with cranberry sauce) as well as a variety of sweet treats, and there is also an ice cream parlor the kids enjoyed. There was also a BBQ going when we were there as well.

There is also a nature trail on the farm, where visitors can get an idea of what organic farming is all about. Stockley’s is a working organic farm, farming with both arable crops, and dairy cows, so those visitors who want to, can get to watch how the cows are milked every afternoon. Depending on the season, when visiting the farm, you can also see first hand, what exactly goes into British farming.

Just the place for a great day’s entertainment, not just for small children, but for the rest of the family as well.

Oh and another bonus for me - I could walk my little one in her pram for her lunchtime nap around the beautiful Cheshire country lanes surrounding the farm - then once awake take her back into Stockley farm for lots more fun.

“Excellent day out for the kids”
Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

A parents of kids aged 6 and 4, we are seasoned campaigners with the "farm/soft play/pets/ice cream" genre. And I would say this is about the best of its type that we have visited. It's a nice, compact site, so easy to get around. Plenty of activities ranging from animal petting (4 y.o. Loved this!) to live lambing - we see 2 separate births whilst we were there, to a birds of prey display. Suffice to say, the kids loved it. And pretty good value too. We will be back soon.
