a great place to take the children where they can get up close to so many animals and also learn about them. The paly area is great and the cafe very good

“A Perfect Visit”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Come rain or shine Finkley Down Farn is somewhere that everyone should visit - be it for the whole day as a family or a quick visit after school with energetic children. All ages are catered for with hands-on animal feeding and grooming, indoor and outdoor play area, cafe and gift shop. I have never met such happy and friendly staff who made my visit to Finkley Down Farm one to be remembered and one that i recommend to everyone for the most enjoyable visit ever. I cannot wait to get my season ticket for next year!

Took our two grandsons to visit and they had a great time. Lots to see and do. Educational and fun. Play area had lots of equipment for the 2 year old and more exciting stuff for the 5 year old.

“Not bad for a family day out”
Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

I took my nephews here during the school holidays . It was busy but mostly with families in the park area. There were plenty of farm animals to see, but they did get a little bored. After all once you've seen one cow you've seen them all!
They have two soft play areas which every child enjoys and children's ride on toys.
Most of the toys had seen better days and could do with replacing.
They loved the pony rides but £3 for a 5 min ride is a bit steep.
Nevertheless the place was clean with plenty of room for them to run around and plenty of free parking, so don't write it off.
