Unfortunately my review has to be based around my experience when supporting people who have learning disabilities and I have to say that I was very disappointed that the park do not offer significant concessions for people who have disabilities and their support staff... The only reason that we visit is because one of the young men that I support... More

Even on a cold windy and wet day still hours of fun for a not yet 2 year old. We took a friend who had not been before and she bought an annual pass as she was so impressed and enjoyed it so much (mum to 1 year old). Staff are knowledgeable about animals and happy to help children get... More

Good for young children to bond with animals although under 4's may be a little frightened, lots of minor "activities" for kids to enjoy, and a great family day out with lunch possibilities as well, recommend for families both local and visiting, grandparents will also enjoy their grandchildren. The jeep tour will be suitable for older ones.

We love to get reviews and thank you. Were a little confused by the "jeep tour". Is this our tractor trailer ride? If so adults and children under 8 usually love it. We appreciate little ones can learn so much about the animals and our full timetable is on every day. Hope to see you again very soon! More

There are lots of activities for children from about 18 months to 10 years or so. Most of these are outdoors, although there are still plenty of things to do if it's raining. It's advisable to read the timetable of events as soon as you enter Farmer Palmers, as some only occur 2 or 3 times a day, and you... More

Farmer Palmers is a good day out for the children. There is lots to do from petting & feeding animals, playing on go karts, tractor rides, a sand pit play ground and a bouncy castle. There's a corn maze that's quite fun and also a barn with slides built on hay bales which is messy but fun also, my children... More

We had an amazing day at Farmer Palmers there was so much to do we took a 2 and 4 year old there was plenty to do inside and out we were pleased with the newer indoor play space with the added sensory activities.

We are annual pass holders so regularly visit here. The children absolutely love it and the soft play is great. They love Mandy and pat demonstrations and then the bouncy castles! If you visit here often I would highly recommend an annual pass, there so worth it! Love farmer palmers

Lots for kids to see and do, plenty of animals, some indoors and some outdoors. Suitable for toddlers as well as older children, although be sure to keep an eye on youngsters as all too often we saw children completely unsupervised and running wild! We went at half term which was very busy, so if you want a little more... More
