“Hmmm, not quite what I hoped for.”
Review of Conundrum Farm

Attraction details
Owner description: Conundrum Farm is a tenanted 800 acre farm situated right on the border of Scotland. We are the most northerly farm in England! Conundrum produces both crop and livestock products, as well as uncultivated areas to encourage and benefit wildlife. There is much to do and see at Conundrum, including the Farm Trail, Battle Trail, Restaurant and Fun Barn. The Farm Trail is a self guided walk around the farm premises, where children and adults alike have the opportunity to interact with our friendly, and often very greedy, livestock animals. Currently we have ewes and lambs, goats, a pig and piglets, horses, a donkey and miniature pony and cattle on show, as well as trout in our trout pond. The Fun Barn is our indoor play area associated with the Farm Trail, housing various guinea pigs and rabbits, as well as pedal tractors, a sand pit with diggers, a small bouncy castle and a colouring area to keep the kiddies amused.Conundrum's award winning restaurant uses mostly locally sourced produce, including our own Aberdeen Angus beef and pork grown on the farm. There are daily specials cooked fresh, as well as our home baked cakes, scones and tray bakes if you just fancy a treat.

“Hmmm, not quite what I hoped for.”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

The entry price of £5 per person did include food for feeding the animals on the way round, but at the end did feel slightly high.
A family fee would be better.
The trail was well kept to walk along, and the animals were friendly to all of us.
A couple of kids play areas around the trail made for a good break.
The highlight was the trout lakes, which were more than keen to be fed, and the big slide for the kids.
The upper trail wasn't best signed, but was the best bit.

“£15 to wander around a field and feed sheep.”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We visited here after searching things to do with toddlers and we were very disappointed.

We paid £15 for two adults and a two year old to wander around in the rain and feed the bedraggled sheep...should be free!!

Toilets were absolutely filthy also.

“Opening times”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Travelled from Newcastle again to be disappointed on a Sunday.
Is it open or not, no clues on the website, phoned several times, no answer.
This is a lovely little farm where we once had a great day, but have never managed to get in since.
Lucky Macdonalds is next door.
