    I like the donkeys
    Usually come for a late lunch. Staff are nice and the food is as well. Car park can be a bit clarty if it's been raining. Sometimes there are a couple of friendly donkeys in the little field next door. Go and say hello.
    Good to hear you like the donkeys, we do have quite a few at Hall Hill Farm,. The car park does have a lot of hard standing, so generally it is only on the busier days that you may need to park on the grass.

    LOVELY AFTERNOON OUT
    A hugely popular animal attraction in County Durham offering plenty to do on a family day out. On first impression we thought it was quite expensive for a family of four to get in but after spending a lovely 3 or 4 hours there it clearly was money well spent. Lots to do and lots to see with many delightful (and importantly happy looking) animals all around. My grandson particularly enjoyed been allowed to pet the rabbits, guinea pigs and chicks. He also loved the chance to feed the sheep, donkeys and goats. The mini golf, sheep racing and water fights were also a delight for him. All in all, a lovely afternoon out was had by all, young and old.
    Thank you for your comments, and are pleased you had a lovely afternoon at Hall Hill Farm, we are passionate about our animals, and we are pleased to hear you and your family enjoyed your visit.

    Lovely
    We had a free ticket as I adopted a goat for my husband and as part of the pack you get 2 free tickets. The farm is well ran and the staff were absolutely lovely, polite and went above to help. I have two teenagers and they went along with the day and held animals and we all loved the animals and the cafe. If I had young children this place is ideal for a full days outing with all the extra kids activities. I would recommend to families as it is a brilliant day out.
    Thank you for your comments! We are pleased to hear you had a great day out and that you would recommend us to other families. We have a brilliant team here at the farm so we are delighted you found our staff helpful.

Went for our daughters birthday. So much to see and do to keep her entertained for hours. We went during the week outside of school holidays and it was very quiet.

We have visited hall hill farm at least a few times a year since my eldest (now 4 y/o) son was born. We always have a fantastic time, but today I was especially impressed by the organisation and couldn't leave without writing a review.

It was the busiest I've ever seen it today, on bank holiday Monday, but everything was so slick that it never felt crowded. The tractor and trailor seems to have been recently upgraded, and the newly extended cafe looked lovely inside.

The staff are fantastic, an absolute credit to the owners, and actually, we saw "Farmer Richard" multiple times in different areas throughout the day, always busy, he clearly cares deeply about his business.

Highlights for us are the play barn, the outdoor play frames and the small animal petting areas. We love the special events throughout the year, with Halloween a particular highlight; we also intend to visit for Christmas this year.

Great to hear you are regular visitors to our farm. We are delighted you were impressed by the organisation, our staff work hard to make sure all visitors have a great experience. You are right, we have just upgraded to a bigger tractor trailer ride so it seats more visitors. Thank you also for the lovely comment on our newly extended highland cafe. Hopefully see you at our Halloween and Christmas event!

We visited for the first time with 2 young children. There was so much to do, we didn’t manage to get around everything. The kids loved holding and feeding lots of different animals and all of the staff were really friendly, chatty and welcoming. The gigantic outdoor play area, tractor sandpit, sledge slide, bouncing pillows and indoor softplay kept us busy in between seeing the animals. We all enjoyed the tractor ride and the sheep racing (particularly the commentating!). There were lots of toilets, baby change and hand washing facilities. The cafe was spacious, clean, really reasonably priced and the staff were very pleasant. We had toasties, cakes and kids packed lunches which were all lovely. We couldn’t have asked for a better day out (other than a little less rain). We will definitely be back!

We loved our day at Hall Hill farm. We were staying in Consett for a weeks break and wanted to make sure we visited the farm due to the good TA reviews.
We had a lovely time, ours two boys 9 and 3.5 loved the animal handling and would have spent most of the day doing this if they could! Rabbits, Guinea pigs and chicks-they loved it,
I have to say so did it! 45 and never too old for Guinea pig snuggles!
There are lots of hand washing stations around the farm which we used and everything was well thought out.
Tractor rides, tractor barrel rides, feeding the animals, soft play and the playground.
It was a busy day but nowhere felt too busy.

Would definitely recommend-thank you

Brilliant day out with a toddler. No waiting for anything. When he wanted to hold different animals he got them straight away. He had fun in the park, soft play and on the tractor ride. Great value for money and very helpful and friendly staff. Lots of hand washing stations/ staff handing out Antibacterial gel after touching lambs etc. Would highly recommend.

Brilliant day out for the whole family. We took out 3 year old grandson and spent nearly 7 hours there and he still did not want to come home. Compared to other parks like Flamingoland this is superb value for money, with food at a fair price and a place we will be visiting again.

I have wanted to visit Hall Hill for many years and finally got around to it. I thoroughly enjoyed it, all the animals were in great condition and look really healthy and very friendly. We bought a bag of food and it was lovely seeing the animals enjoy their treats. Everything is very well run, and plenty of opportunities to wash your hands after feeding the animals. Staff all lovely and friendly too. We had lunch in the cafe, which was very reasonably priced and very good quality. The new extension in the cafe looks great. There were no children in our party but plenty of children there and all seemed to be enjoying themselves on the various rides and play area. All in all had a great day and will definitely return.
