Great for young children between the ages of 3 to 10/11 [?]; lots for them to see and do. Little train rides, pony rides, and ambling around to look at the animals and a variety of activities. However as a parent or rather grandparent I...More

This venue is very very child friendly and is spotlessly clean and well run. There are rides to excite, animals to admire, and places to eat. There are restaurants, snack sales and picnic areas if you prefer to take your own food. There is a...More

We started our holiday at a poor campsite with hardly any facilities, then by chance came across Old Macdonalds. The staff were amazing and accomodating, and what's on offer for children is out of this world! We packed up and moved here and couldn't be...More

This little farm has lots of potential but it’s really tired and run down. The animal pens are small, the poor owl looked really forlorn. The toddler area is grubby, the plastic toys and trikes were dirty. It needs some money spending on it and...More
