Had a fab morning out at Farmtastic animal farm at the weekend. Lots of really friendly animals to pet/feed. Staff were really friendly too and we loved our goat walk! Nice and relaxing with my little girl. She could run around without worrying about her and the animals were so friendly that she loved feeding them. Look forward to going... More

Thank you for your comments, we really appreciate them. We designed Farmtastic so there is only one way in and out so you can let the little ones run without worrying that they can wander off and get lost. Due to the change in the weather we are now closed until the Spring but hope to see you again next... More

What a gem! Not as refined or with as much indoor play as some other animal experiences but more than made up for by the huge variety of animals and the lovely team. As soon as we arrived we were asked if we wanted to bottle feed the goats and calves (why would you say no??), then on to hold... More

Freddie the deer is special - although he can be very naughty as well - just last week whilst topping up his water he came over to say hello - next thing I know he's undone my shoelace and is munching on it without me even noticing! Then he gives you that innocent "it wasn't me look" and you can't... More

The small child demanded animals. We've done the other local farm parks, but we hadn't been here (mainly due to the ridiculous restrictions the Local Council put on them last year - 25 days only to open!!) as yet. What a pleasant surprise, it's not as finished or indoor orientated as Roves Farm etc, but it more than makes up... More

Glad you had a fun day out. Taking the goats for a walk is an experience and one not to be forgotten! We do try to focus more on the animal experience rather than the play experience which some other farms seem to focus on but we do have some toys for the younger guests to play with whilst you...

Really friendly staff and nothing is too much trouble. This is not a pristine farm but the animals are all in good condition and for a start up fantastic. Very good value .

Glad you had an enjoyable time. This year was the first year we have been able to open fully without restrictions imposed on us by the local Council (previously only able to open 28 days a year). As you can imagine starting up a business is hard work but hopefully over the coming years Farmtastic will become bigger and better... More

The kittens are truly adorable, especially the ones with white on their feet and faces - they will be looking for homes shortly and with Christmas around the corner could solve the question of what do I want for Christmas! Hope to see you again soon and you definiately need to go on the tractor ride next time. If you... More

We visited last weekend with my 9 year old daughter and my mother. We received such a warm welcome with everyone being so friendly, approachable and wishing to share animal knowledge and experiences with us all! Within seconds my daughter was bottle feeding calves and sheep then running off to take a goat for a walk. We spent a lovely... More

I think bottle feeding the calves is one of my favorite things at Farmtastic closely followed by "being walked" by Odd Socks the goat, he certainly knows where he wants to go! Hope to see you again soon More

Visited Farmtastic animal farm for the first time today with my two little ones (1 1/2 and 2 1/2 year olds). I was pleasantly surprised and will definitely be returning. You get to hold some of the small animals (hare, bunnies, chicks), you can feed some of the animals, they have an amazing selection of animals to see. It only... More

Visited here with some friends and our kids (both toddlers under 2) and had an enjoyable afternoon. It wasn't too easy to find but made it in the end.
