Visited the farm with two young children. Very well run place which is kept immaculate! Loads of space for children to run around. Lots of indoor activities if the weather is not so good. Definitely worth a visit.

There was so much for my children to do I didn't think it was too much to pay. I even had a go on the zip line and swings myself. Who said adults couldn't use the facilities!!
