We had a great day at the farm. Holding baby animals, donkey rides and both indoor and outdoor play areas made for two happy children. At aged 4 and 14 its sometimes difficult to find somewhere to suit both but this was a treat for all :-)

We had my sons 5th birthday party here today and it was amazing, the staff made sure all the kids had a really good day and my son felt like the main star, the food was fantastic and everyone had a great time despite the weather being freezing would definitely recommend.

We visited in February but the weather was freezing, the snow came on for a bit too. Not the brightest thing for us to visit a farm in Feb. The animals were great and love the idea of hand feeding animals, my kids will love that too. We'll be back in the summer for the day for sure.

Excellent place for the whole family to enjoy, we took children ranging from 12 to 5 years old and they all loved it. Reasonable prices and lovely staff. All be it was a little rainy that didn't stop us as the majority of animals are under cover However We are looking forward going back in the spring/summer

Took my 7yr old Grandaughter here for a day out, bit of a walk from the bus stop but worth the trek. We both had a great tine, loads to see she loved holding the chicks and the cow milking display we will definitely be back... entrance fee you need to add to for tractor ride and donkey ride....
