My son is only 18m and I’ve already been to Farmer Palmers innumerable times. He’s too young yet to make use of every attraction, but what’s available to him is enough to wear him out for the rest of the afternoon - no small feat!...More

It's expensive , then they want to change extra for a very bumpy 10 minute trailer ride. I also felt that some of the toddler attractions were being abused by older children. Nobody there to supervise.
