I bought this as a Christmas present for my partner. We booked in to go walk the pigs in June, two adults and a four year old. We had a great afternoon, the weather was amazing and the host (and the pigs) were very friendly.

Had a fantastic time walking with the piggies. Everyone in the family enjoyed it the teenagers and my 8 year old. Lovely setting, lovely pigs and lovely tea and cakes after. Thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend to all ages.
