“A day out for all the family”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

I took my 3 kids, mother and sister today and we had a fantastic time.
The food in the cafe was tremendous, and very well priced.
The staff were very helpful, very polite and happy to let the kids hold the smaller animals and reptiles.
There is a large selection of animals to feed and hold.
There is also a fantastic play area and soft play too.
I would certainly recommend this as a great day out for all the family.
The facilities were also very clean and tidy.
Will visit again

“Very good 6/1/2013”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Just been to this farm with my boyfriend we are both 19.
We found this farm very good for the animals they have, although they could of got more of the animals out to stroke whilst we were there for example more of the lizards etc as when you were walking round the farm there wasnt many staff around so we werent quite sure which animals we could stroke/feed.
The farm is very suitable for children, as there is different activities to do although we noticed that as we walked round you had to pay extra to go on the tractor ride etc, maybe this should of been included in the £6-£7 to get in?
over all this farm is very good for the different range of animals and we felt included aswell as the children that were there did!
I would visit again.

“"The grandchildren loved it"”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Took the grandchildren there to see Santa and the animals and I must say this place really does have the WOW factor ! Been to similar places around the country, but this place leaves them standing by a mile.To us it scored on every front -- great value for money, loads to see , helpful knowledgeable staff and more than decent catering (nice Sunday lunch).The fact that the children (and ourselves for that matter) didn't want to leave says it all.Must mention that they also have a picnic barn if you want to take your own grub, which is a nice touch if you have to count the pennies.Shall definitely visit again when next up north.

“White House Farm Morpeth”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

My niece and I have been going several times a year since she was about 2 years old (she is 6 now), she loves all parts, petting shed, soft play, play park, donut slide, bouncey castles, frisbee golf, maze, outside animals too. Her favourtie is the petty shed, she loves all the furry animals and the creepy crawlies, (Santa brought her a Giant African Land Snail - called Charlie this year). The staff are all so nice and patient with her explaining about the animals. She has now decided that she wants to work here when she is older and is coming to live with Auntie Penny and has told her mum she wil visit her.
Georgie has also been with mum & dad, Grandad & TeeTee.

“Always a great day out - magical at Christmas!!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

I have visited this farm many times over the years with my sons and extended family and we always have a great day out. It has all the usual farm animals as well as meerkats, birds of prey, reptiles, deer & reindeer and little cute wallabies! What makes this place so special are the lovely staff. At the admission point they are always helpful, informative & friendly. The staff who run all the animal activities such as meerkat Talk, reptile shows, bird of prey etc are all extremely informative with a bit of fun added in to keep all ages entertained.The staff in the restaurant have always been very obliging with any requests we have had, there's always a good choice and prices we think are reasonable too. My boys love running around so the soft play, adventure playground & gokarts are always a big hit with them. They also love the bumpy tractor ride! We easily spend a day here even in the winter time when the bigger animals are all indoors, you need to wrap up well as the barns are cold - but it is a Farm after all!! We try and visit most holidays when there is more on like the magician who has the kids ( and adults) in kinks with his antics.They love feeding the lambs when we visit at Easter & my husband thought it was funny when I got "spooked" at Halloween.But our best time is Christmas - we were last there on Sun 23rd Dec, we really felt in the Christmas Spirit from the fantastic decorations in the Grotto, meeting the best Santa ever (boys verdict), the lovely Christmas Fairy, the Crazy Elf at Elf School where the boys each got a certificate plus the lovely touch of being able to write Santa a letter and post it and then the boys were amazed when they each got a reply with their name on from Mrs Claus ( we are still trying to work that one out :-) ) All the staff around the farm were dressed up too.The best thing was it didnt cost any extra to do all those extra things so a big thumbs up for value for money in our opinion. Even after Christmas the boys are still talking about their visit to the Farm. As Ive previously mentioned we have visited several times now and recognise many of the staff even when they are dressed up , having chatted to some of them you get the feeling that the staff go all out to make sure everyone has a fab time. Well done everyone , we'll be back next year.
