“Delightful day out”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We took our young grandson to Windmill farm , we all really enjoyed it, a lovely cafe and outside seating area for picnics, a great outside play area suitable for all ages of children, also lots of little John Deer tractors for the little one s to play on
The animals were friendly and ate the food we were given with our entry fee. The larger animals were in fields which were easily accessible. A charming little train ride takes you on a ride around the farm for a small fee, Also there are special events going on through summer like birds of prey.
There are many hand washing facilities after feeding the animals which i strongly recommend you use.

“Lovely ride-on tractors and baby animals”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Loved seeing the baby animals when we visited this spring. Tough to get our toddler off the ride-on tractors though! Food was expensive, but we brought our own which was fine.

“More fun than I expected”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

I visited here in June this year, mainly for the small train.
Much more fun than I expected with all the baby animals.
Plenty to see and a nice walk in the country.
The small train was good value for money.
Would go again

“Good day out”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Even tho weather was grim we and the kids had a good day out. Inside play area was excellent both for 5and 2yr old. Only a few animals but you could get up close and personal! Train ride was separate but vfm. Even got shown around engine sheds! When we go again we shall take our own food. The prices were a tad steep eg 1.95 for a cup cake!. Overall a pleasant experience.

“A lovely family day out!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

Great value for money bearing in mind what you get :

Clean toilets and baby changing
Gift shop
Cafe with indoor and outdoor seating
Ride on toys and tractors
Play part for all ages
Various animals including their babies
Lamb feeding
Open countryside walks to see the animals
Train ride (extra)

The staff are friendly, nothing was too much trouble. It's nice to see a family business giving so much to the community.

The animals were varied, lovely and well cared for and the grounds equally so.

We'd definitely recommend and visit again.
