Axe Throwing & Awesome Burgers!
Oct 2021
Huw was an awesome axe throwing coach, it was our first time trying this and we are well and truly hooked! If you have time, this is a must! The food at The Cow next door was also fantastic, the burgers are pretty epic! An awesome afternoon!

It’s all about Huw
Oct 2021 • Friends
We have come down from the North West for the week and the axe throwing and archery was our last activity on the Island. Really good fun, great games and such a laugh with the instructor, Huw.
Great for all ages.
Can not recommend enough, big thanks from Rachel, John, Mark and Harvey😁

Great for kids
Oct 2021
Honestly if you have kids it would be a wonderful place to let them go. Many things to do from axe throwing to the aqua park. I went for the food though.

Soft play and farm animals
Oct 2021 • Family
Little one loves the soft play and the little animals in the barn! The outside bits where either closed or done quickly due to the weather but clearly it would be great for a family with old kids or a mix of ages!

Archery and Axe Throwing
Sep 2021 • Family
Visited Tapnell pre covid with my nephews and at that time was able to stay all day which we did - enough there to entertain for the day. This time went with my grown up kids and parents for the axe throwing and archery sessions. All had a great time. Sorry for forgetting his name (Hugh? or Hugo?) lovely member of staff who did both activites with us and made it so much fun and as it was all adults made it very competitive. We then played football golf. Again brilliant time. Next time we will be booking the same and the aquapark as well.
Understandable with covid restrictions and staff shortages the small cafe is limited. Staff were lovely and friendly, but food selection limited when we visited (which did us a favour as we had booked into The Cow restaurant later that day and the portions were huge!).

Highly recommend all of it and can't wait to return.

Aqua park visit
Sep 2021
Teen kids are massively in to aqua parks at the moment and wanted to try the ‘new’ aqua park here.

Staff were great with them and the facility were good. Lake and inflatables looked really clean.

Got the thumbs up from the kids. Son thought it the ‘second best we’d ever done ‘ ( and we’ve done loads) .

Could do with better signage to the cafe as we must have been asked 10 times by other visitors where we got our coffees ( which were also very good).

My wife and I entertained ourselves trying to work out what used to be on the site where they’ve built the lake.
it was a really windy day and going forwards they could do with some kind of covered/ indoors viewing area.

Great day out.

Great day out
Oct 2020 • Family
This farm was amazing, so much more than just animals.

We loved all the activities. We could easily spend the day there.

The pillows were a favourite of our family we loved how we could all play together adults, children, even Nanna had a go.

The play park attention to detail was great. Our son loved the tractor.

We loved the sand and beach huts.

We can’t wait to return next year

Great morning for our toddler
Sep 2021
Recommended by a friend we booked a morning session.

We arrived just after 10 and hadn't appreciated there would be a queue (we hadn't queued for anything so far on our holiday!) and this ate in to the soft play session we had booked. We only had about 15 minutes in the soft play in the end although my toddler seemed quite content with this thankfully! There was a separate under 5s area but also on the main play frame there was a small slide which my toddler loved. It had been well managed with numbers as didn't feel busy at all.

Outside there were cozy coupe cars and tractor ride ons, a small beach with play area and buckets and spades. There was also the pillow, one for the under 5s and one for the older children, along with a play park.

There were then animals to see and the other barn area had small carts, a playhouse and small slides and rockers.

Overall we had a great morning, while there were plenty of people around, nothing felt busy and my toddler was able to enjoy everything without any rush.

Summer Sundown - Thumbs Down
Aug 2021 • Family
A large group of us attended the Summer Evening session on a Thursday in August and feel it was a total misrepresentation of what was advertised. The hot food selection was poor, serving dry burgers and a dismal side salad. Being told we were to expect food vans, Mac n cheese and other street type food we were not impressed with the offerings. Beers were warm and the level of entertainment was below what we expected for this event. I would not recommend going to this event and has left us feeling very underwhelmed. The whole group left hungry and disappointed.

Good day out for kids
Sep 2021 • Family
Timed entry, lots of small families, plenty of seating around and hand wash stations with warm water!
Wallaby experience was loved by children, outdoor play area makes it all easy but the evening got chilly and windy.
Staff at the farm were very friendly.

Coffee at the cafe was average and the food was overpriced.
