Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Croxteth park is fabulous if you are a dog owner. However, if you are a cyclist or a runner, it is not ideal as the amount of dogs off leads make either of these activities difficult. Dogs should be on leads to make it more enjoyable for everyone.

It was simplicity itself to arrive from Liverpool centre, courtesy of Bus 18 to Abbeyfield Drive stop, followed by a grand walk through the great Park.

With a few architectural styles down the centuries, most of the Hall is in impressive red brick. Another facade shows a profusion of white stone around the windows and grand entrance. All very decorative.

Currently it is undergoing essential maintenance so wasn’t possible to view the interior. A walled garden is lovely and open for relaxing strolls through, appreciating the flora and colourful flowers.

Some of the estate is occupied by a Horticultural and Animal Care College. A working farm is associated with this, including for student practical work.

The farm is hidden away in the park but I had been given clear instructions on how to get there. The farm was ok, lots of animals for the kids to feed. My reason for dropping to three stars - the cost for a small child regardless of age is £5.00 and they do want the tubs to feed the animals which is an additional £2. It’s ok if you only go now and then but it will be an expensive trip if there are a few of you.

The main reason for the drop in stars is the hand washing facilities. I live in an area where a number of children became seriously unwell follow a trip to our local farm and this was long before covid. As we all know, animals can spread a lot of germs that can be really harmful to smaller children. When I tried to get my granddaughter (5) to wash her hands after feeding the animals there was a serious lack is soap - none at all. I was more than a little surprised especially in the hand washing section which to be fair was pretty grubby and not somewhere you would want to linger! When I told a member of staff about the lack of soap, she smiled and told me to use the toilets as there was probably some soap there.

Come folks get with the best and provide good, clean hand washing stations - you charge enough to provide soap.

My husband and I recently visited for a little morning walk, we were really enjoying ourself until we were walking around the walled garden area.

There was an area with greenhouses and the signs said to enter, there was a small wooden block with some information about the plants on to get into that section, unfortunately all the greenhouses were locked so I made my way back out, a security guard came running up to me and said that he had caught me on CCTV and that it was clear that I wasn't allowed in there, I said that I saw no signed to suggest it was off limits and he said he there was a barrier there for a reason and started shouting at me. I would like to explain that I am autistic and this situation really upset me and ruined the rest of our visit, I later had a panic attack due to this incident and I am still unsure what I did to be shouted at. This was such a horrible experience and hope this doesn't happen to anyone else.

Visited Croxeth Country Park 3/8/22. Looked around the walled garden. Wow!! what a beautiful hidden gem and highly recommended for a visit. Friendly and helpful staff to answer your garden queries. This is a tranquil and peaceful haven to take in, whether to meander around or to sit and admire this gorgeous place. An absolute credit to all the people involved in maintaining and cultivating this fantastic space..

The park itself is nice enough, but the cafe near the hall is atrocious. I live next door to the park, and regularly walk through the grounds. Today we went at lunch time and decided to grab a bite to eat. The farm cafe had stopped serving hot food (be nice if the menu made this clear!), so we went to the small outdoor cafe next to the hall. Never again. Bacon clearly pre-cooked and reheated/burnt, very dodgy looking hot dog. Then to add insult to injury a price of £4.50. £15 for two sandwiches, two bottles of coke, and two small chocolate bars. God knows what anyone coming for a day out would make of it, certainly not going to leave them with fond memories of their visit

Anyway, four stars for the park itself and one star (less if possible) for the cafe - steer clear of it if you visit

Took our grandson here today, we haven’t been before so not sure what to expect.
The signage wasn’t brilliant, we found the farm eventually, but no way of knowing where the entrance was and no staff about, and were a bit shocked at the charge for our 2 year old being the same as for an adult - £5 plus no concession for us 2 pensioners, or family tickets , plus £2 for a bucket of scraps to feed the animals., a dear ££££ do if you have a large family. The animals were a big hit though, lots of goats, piglets, sheep, horses, but no chickens 😢 The picnic table area as you go in could do with sprucing up, and the ones by the grass / play park area too, where we sat and had a picnic. Lots of opportunities for little fingers to get splinters. The play park equipment was good, so he enjoyed that. We walked over to find the walled garden but it was shut. Also the only toilets we were told were back in the farm . For a big place there should be other toilets . To be honest we were a bit disappointed, and felt the whole place was run down and could do with some TLC .
