This visit was extremely mixed with positives and negatives. I'll start with the positives. The petting area on the farm seemed well managed with animals being rotated reguarly throughout the day to minimise stress for the animals. Seeing a hare mixed with the rabbits was...More

Had a fantastic day here with the nieces during the holidays. So much opportunity for them to get up close with the animals. Saw some incredibly cute piglets! Very reasonably priced also, would recommend this place to anyone above other animal attractions in kent.

Yes our son was around that age when took him and is buggy friendly though maybe a little soggy in places at this time of year.
As a season ticket holder for myself and my grandson I have just returned from a visit to the Rare Breeds Centre and, unusually for us, decided to have something in the Granary restaurant. It must have been about 3.30 on a very busy Saturday (to-day) and my grandson wanted anything with chips but there was nothing hot or sandwiches on offer. He, therefore, chose a chocolate muffin with some smarties on the topping and a bottle of Coke. On arriving at the cash desk I was very surprised to be asked for £6.50! After getting him seated I was going back to get a coffee and cake for myself but, at this price, I didn't bother and won't hurry to return to the restaurant again. The table where we sat had not been cleaned and there was a lot of food under the table, including a whole cake which my grandson picked up and nearly ate. Apart from this I have always enjoyed fun filled days with my grandson at the Rare Breeds Centre which has improved each year and seems very well run. I also applaud the work they are doing by having maybe slightly less able people working alongside them. But please, please revise your pricing for one cup cake & a bottle of coke!
