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.

Went for a quick lunch here in Aug 2013. The goats cheese quiche was home-made, light and tasty and well complemented by a very fresh and interesting salad. Washed down with a bottle of Peroni. It is self-service buffet-style but the surroundings were nice and homely. I can't vouch for the rest of the farm but if a decent quality quick lunch is what you're after, this is well worth a visit. Just off the A1 near Berwick, near the site of Halidon Hill battlefield.

Been here numerous times this summer with my son and we thoroughly enjoyed each and every time, staff are very helpful and friendly as is the owner of the farm whom we met on our recent trip. Wee one loves the freedom of being able to run about safely and the big park and is mesmerised by the fish in the pond also loves the tractors in the barn area. Would recommend and have done as my friends have visited to and enjoyed.

Will defo be back. A very inexpensive enjoyable day out

Wish we had reviewed our trip here before going. Could not believe the £5 per head charge. We had 5 in our group and only one child whom we were trying to keep entertained. Felt £25 was quite pricey for what was there

Animals only were some pigs (in hiding), goats, sheep, alpacas, horses and a few fish. You are all given some food whether you want it or not as it is included in the price.

The is a trail to follow, with a couple of small play areas for kids along the way.

On the return to the main building there was a nice cafe and our lunch was lovely. Had it not been for the cafe our score would have been lower. The is also a play area with plastic tractors, some pictures to colour in from a cheap book and little else. It is in a barn like building with old church pews to sit upon and very uncomfortable. Unless the entrance fee is more reasonable or they invest in more animals please avoid.

Absolute disgrace. Please avoid going here as you will be disappointed to say the least.
There were a few sheep, horses, lamas and a donkey!
Public are not permitted to take their own food on site, but you could buy a packed lunch from their cafe are!!! Yeh right @ £4+ for sandwich, apple and biscuit!!
Picnic areas were overgrown and impossible to use.
Indoor area disgraceful. Inflatable bouncy castle that did not stay inflated when kids went on it (dangerous) and rabbits etc were fed what appeared to be frozen bagged carrots. No expense spared there!!
I know times are hard Mr. Farmer but this is unacceptable!

We took our 2 kids here on our way to Haggerston Castle and it was great,the kids loved getting to feed & pet the animals,they also loved the play areas too!Our only problem with it was that the indoor animals 'enclosures' didn't seem that clean:(Overall though it was a fun day out!
