This is a lovely hands on place to visit. You can handle and feed most of the animals. You can also get a yearly pass (with a cost). There is a fee to get in, but it is well worth it. Young children would love it and also no matter what age you are and if you are an animal... More

Had to queue for an hour and a half but were warned about this from the start. It went really quick and was worth it. The barn was lovely. Had to queue next to an unhappy child but that was no fault of the farm!!

An excellent place to take children to see Father Christmas. The children are occupied beforehand by colouring in printed pages of Father Christmas. There are baby chicks to hold, opportunity for photos, a variety of animals for the children to see and of course Father Christmas.My granddaughter, nearly aged 4 was given a bag of sweets and a finger puppet...

We were looking for an activity for our tired 2 year old after arriving on an early morning flight and boy are we glad we found this. The price to enter made us think it's be a quick time filler before dinner and bed bug if turned into a 4 hour outing and could easily have spent longer. The hands... More

We took our 3 grandsons (4yrs, 2yrs and 10 months) to Longdown after lunch in early October. We had a lovely welcome from the lady on the desk and were told that if we hurried we could join in with holding a baby chick! The boys absolutely loved it! From brushing a baby goat, petting a bunny, feeding the ducks,... More

We enjoyed it for a couple of hours. Plenty for kids to look at and do, animals, tractors rides, pedal tractors, soft play, trampolines. Activities throughout the day including holding chicks, stroking rabbits and feeding times. Free parking. Costs £9 for an adult, children under 3 are free. Cafe looked totally uninspiring so we ended up going to Lyndhurst. Overall... More

Thank you for your review, most of our visitors enjoy the interaction with the animals, as there is an activity every half hour throughout the day, they would normally stay on the farm for at least 3 hours, saying that many of our visitors like to stay all day and get involved and use the play equipment in between feeding...
