Wanted to visit this farm because of rare British breeds. Sadly didn't see Clydesdale horse or cows, just one calf. Weather was terrible, so some animals preferred to stay inside of their huts. Nice place anyway.

Oh my!! This farm is awesome!!! Well priced and lots to see. It's nicely laid out with happy well looked after animals. Make sure you buy at least two buckets of food cos one is just not enough for all these gorgeous animals.

If you have kids then you 100% must check this place out. Very entertaining and educational. You can buy a wee bucket of animal food and then feed the animals. I would highly recommend this place to families with young children.

Went along with our 2 year old. Not much to see. Pigs x 2 and sheep. Nice little play park. Wouldn't manage to fill a day out, we were only there for just over an hour at most. Wouldnt return.

I took my 7 & 8 year old who loved it. However I thought if they did not have the sheep and lambs to feed, I don't think they would like it as much. Overall the place seems run down with only sheep, Lambs, some...More

Took an elderly uncle here. The rare breeds were great and very very friendly and eating out your hands. The sheep and pigs were the best , quite a bit cheaper of characters
