Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

I had a season pass for this summer (which was great value) so i took my little girls nearly every week. They love it and never get bored. It has everything you need for kids in one place- playground, animals, soft play and a woodland walk. The abbey grounds have plenty of space to run around and there's a cafe that has great food at reasonable prices. And there's always activities in the afternoons for the older ones. Interesting day out for adults too. Toilets and gift shop on site. Brilliant day out every time

“Steam bottling machine”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

We went earlier on in the year on one of the days when the steam bottling machine was open. It was so lovely so see this beautiful old machine working and really good to be able to show my son how the heat from the fire below works the whole machine. Staff were super helpful and pleased to answer questions. We always get great value for money at Greenfield.

Dear Frances 0077, Thank you very much for your most complimentary review. It is very gratifying to all of us here at Greenfield Valley to hear how you enjoyed the Steam bottling plant with your son. We exist to achieve exactly what you have described; enjoyable learning in a safe, friendly and family environment. Our Volunteers man and run the bottling plant for just that reason and I am sure when I pass your comments on to them they will be extremely pleased.
We look forward to seeing you and your family again here soon.

“Enjoyable afternoon”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We went on a Saturday afternoon in October, firstly the price was very reasonable at £14.00 for a family of 4. As it was off season we virtually had the place to ourselves, plenty of animals for the kids to see and they really enjoyed the maze. Only downside was that some of the buildings were closed which was a bit of a disappointment but there was still plenty to see. Would highly recommend a trip as even though it is not action packed it is a relaxing way to spend time with the kids in a traffic free environment.

Thanks very much for your review. We are glad that you found your visit both reasonably priced and enjoyable. You are quite correct that we are not action packed in the off season however if is is action packed in a gentle sort of way that you are after particularly for the family, might I recommend our halloween half term fortnight. We do have plenty to occupy a an active family over this period ranging from Pumpkin play time( not for the faint -hearted ) to Scary cartoon creations. We look forward to welcoming your family when you are next passing.

“October closure”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We took our young grandson to visit greenfield it was ok but not really for very young, although he did enjoy the little tractors, which needed a little updating and the soft play area could have been cleaner. Also there is no where to eat at all if you go on a monday so take a picnic.

Thank you for posting your review. I take your point about the small kids tractors being a bit tired.
The Tractors have been well and truly hammered over the summer As usually do, we will be retiring the worst of them when we close, replacing them with new tractors in March next year ready for opening.
However I am glad that you seem to have enjoyed your visit and we look forward to welcoming you again should you be passing. Thank you
