Wellybobs is a family run farm with lots of indoor and outdoor facilities.The emphasis at wellybobs is close contact with our wonderful animals. All our animals are extremely tame and are displayed in clean light conditions so you can meet them and stroke them. We have a petting area where you can meet our little furry critters, this is always staffed to ensure our animals are never mishandeled.Outdoors we have lots more animals and lovely countryside to explore,we have an outdoor play area,which includes our ever popular Zip Wire. We also have a 9 hole mini golf course (extra charge applies). Our indoor play barn features a timber play frame, giant bouncy slide, bouncy castle and toddler soft play zone, we also have a reptile area and go cart track. Moo's cafe serves home made hot and cold food and drinks at very reasonable prices and our ice cream parlour serves delicious ice cream made on a local farm. We also have a party area and gift area.

Everything looks tired and in need of some TLC, not as clean as it should be and not as good as other farms we have visited. Nice for the children that they could hold the small animals.

The experience was good from start to finish. My grandaughter who is 19 months old got to feed lambs and pet the rabbits and chicks. The place was clean and the animals well cared for. The man in charge of petting the animals was professional and got all the children involved. Will be back in the summer.

I organised my daughters 8 th birthday party at Wellybobs and was not disappointed.. Great staff kept 14 eager children well entertained for over two hours. Great value for money and would definitely recommend..

We have visited Wellybobs numerous times and my daughter absolutely loves it. One thing that concerns me though, is that the enclosures are very small. Do the animals get time outside their enclosures to stretch? The owl just sits at the back of a small shed, the parrots are in a small enclosure... I saw a toad that took up... More

Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback, please let me assure you that the animals get ample time to exercise outdoors and their indoor enclosures far exceed the recommended requirements. During winter many of our animals would not survive living outdoors due to the harsh wet conditions in our part of the world. Our enclosures are designed to... More

We were greeted by a football playing sheep dog which my niece loved. There is lots of opportunity to get up close to the animals. Friendly staff help the young ones to hold animals - we got a chicken and a Guinea pig! The indoor soft play area was also a great hit. Great value and well worth a visit... More

We visited roughly 2 years ago and had an excellent day, our return visit today really was a disappointment. I appreciate this is a small, family run place but it all just feels like it needs a good update. The cafe felt dirty, I know people are coming in and out with dirty shoes will contribute but food wasn't cleared... More
