I have been visiting here for years lovely little farm free to get into which is a plus. Perfect place to let the children be children and see the animals. Can purchase feed for them too. Would recommend

I went here with my 2yo and she loved it! It’s just a perfect size for them to get around. There’s a great cafe too. Staff are so friendly and considering it’s led by donations only, it’s a real gem! Would visit again.

We really enjoyed our time here, it could do with more animals but it is understandable with it being free admission. The tubs of food to feed the animals are really reasonable at £1 each and was more than happy to buy some. The staff...More

For a small urban farm it's great for little ones. If you have larger kids it's ok but little ones really enjoy it
