Best bit is the soft play indoors, there used to be more animals they seemed very few and far between considering it is a farm, not much animal handling just the usual rabbits and guinea pigs by someone grumpy. Cafeteria is abysmal, now see opening...More

Visited as we have done for many years, & loved that is more like a real farm, however the lack of staff, animals & things to do is dropping during each visit. To be honest I think that was our last visit, as raised issues...More

I really can't understand the four and five star reviews. I can only assume they've never been anywhere else so don't have a benchmark. The children's play area is large and functional but run down. I wouldn't really say that the farm is a tourist...More

Visited with our 7 and 5 year old. Both kids loved the animals, parks and indoor play equipment. The opportunity to feed lambs was brilliant. Was disappointed that pony rides weren't available, but it wasn't crucial. Cafe was not bad value either. Worth a visit...More
