You now have to book tickets and get a timeframe due to covid, the rabbits and ferritets / small animals r blocked of also due to covid understandable, there’s more than enough hand sanitizer for everyone dotted around the place. The cafe is open and ice cream, lollies, cakes and coffee are available to buy, staff are all helpful and also there is seating outside cafe. Kids play ground are with newly added tea cup funfair ride, a hook the duck win a prize hut, also a cotton candy and sweet stall, the sweet stall is unfortunately very over prices I paid £1.50 for a bag of snake sweets when I opened them I was disappointed to see only two snakes inside bag I could get 8 at my corner shop for that price There’s a fairy trail, a fitness trail and a seating area in the woods these areas could be cheaply updated to make them more fun and exciting as they r run down a bit. Toilets are standard and are clean. It’s not a full day out but it is a fun half a day for the kids There are things that could easily and very cheaply be made better but it is a fun afternoon out

Hi there, Thank you for your review and we're glad you enjoyed your visit to Amelia Trust Farm. We will pass on your feedback regarding the sweet stall - the teacups and sweet stall are outsourced so unfortunately we do not get a say in how much they charge but we will certainly pass this on. We are a registered charity who rely heavily on fundraising. Any fundraising events we run goes towards our Animals and the upkeep of our Farm. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have missed out on vital fundraising time which means some updates we would have hoped to make haven't been able to go ahead. We will take your feedback on board and make a note of these points when we next sit down to discuss improvements at the Farm. Once again, thank you for your review and we hope to see you at the Farm again soon!

We visited today and it sadly this isn't a great outdoor farm attraction. I know we are in difficult times and it isn't a great cost entry fee but we felt it certainly didn't offer much at all. A few sheep, couple of pigs a turkey few rabbits and chickens two alpakas and 3 donkies all spread about. There's a little roundabout and a hook a duck stall. Few empty pens also. Hopefully it can be worked on to make it better. Sadly not worth the trip for us. Stayed less than an hour. Dissapointing. Wish them the best though, this review is only our point of view.

Hi Robbie, We're sorry you feel that way regarding your visit to Amelia Trust Farm. Very glad that you managed to see our sheep, pigs, turkey, rabbits, chickens, alpacas and our donkeys (there are 4 but the one must have been hiding!). We have over 20 species of animals to see at the Farm, the only ones that are currently blocked off is our Ferrets due to them being at risk of catching Coronavirus. We are a registered charity who rely heavily on donations from the public and our fundraising events. As you can imagine, due to the recent and current circumstances, we have missed out on a lot of time to work on our fundraising which is why we had to make the decision to increase our entry fee by a small amount. We do also have our woodland walks to enjoy which include the Fairy and Gnome trail! We are constantly reviewing what we do at the Farm so take any feedback on board - thank you very much.

There are some lovely walks around the farm - perfect for a young family! My sons love counting the fairies and gnomes on the trail and seeing the animals. The eggs sold are fresh from the farm and really tasty! The farm does wonderful work and I feel happy that my entrance fee will go towards supporting this charity work.

We have always loved going to the farm as a family and as soon as it opened after lockdown we booked a space. I found it to be well organised and due to its nature of farm and outdoor trails, the only difference was not being able to use the play area and the barn (closed due to COVID at time of visiting). We’ve been numerous times throughout the years but there we still found new spaces and have never actually done the animal trail before. It’s a lovely place for the children to get outdoors and learn about animals and nature

We booked tickets for the halloween party which was catered for up too 11 year olds so I came with my 2 year old my nieces 4 7, 8 and 5 months. On arrival we were greeted by a man who said we had to pay another £2 each adult to enter the farm but said we weren't using the farm as it was raining. We went into the barn area and 2 ladies were sat there who looked like they didnt really want to be there didnt greet us or the kids and when we asked for more seats reluctantly went and got some. It was freezing in the area and not much for the children at all. There we 2 bouncy castles and a very small ball pit which the older 2 were asked to leave. Then they judged the fancy dress and awarded the 3 best dressed and there were some upset children for not being picked maybe stickers for everyone wouldve been nice how are young children supposed to understand. When it said on the fb post a disco thought there might be some games and dancing wasnt good for the older girls at all. Also was told there would be a goody bag and all wasnt given anything when we left. Thought it was very over priced for what it was. Only positive was the lovely lady who served us a coffee in the cafe to keep us warm. Such a pity as staff there couldve made it lovely with couple of games and interaction with the children. I know you are charity run but charging that amount for something that isnt offering anymore than a soft play offers isnt great. 2 stars for the young lady in the cafe.
