had a fantastic day out at Thornton Hall farm from arrival the staff / owners etc could not do enough for you, extremely freindly welcome, indoor and outdoor climbing frame and swings etc, ride on tractors for toddlers and small children, rope swings with soft landing, 2 x huge indoor slides, the farmers etc get you involved collecting eggs and feeding animals etc, its very educational they have a wealth of knowledge, you can tell they enjoy their jobs and the animals etc, even my 16 year old enjoyed herself, the safari was good driving through fields etc and seeing deer sheep cows and a very cuddly huge Bull called firework! cafe a little expensive but very nice home made food but plenty of picnic areas if you wish to take your own lunch etc. some of the rides are at an extra cost but not expensive and you dont get pushed to go on them, all in all great day wish it was nearer as im sure my daughter would become a regular helper there!!!

I took my daughter and mum to Thornton Hall and we all loved it. The staff were friendly and helpful and the activities available were age appropriate. The safarai around the entire farm is a must, we loved it!!!
Its a great family day out and we will definitely be going back again!!

Like I have said on the title the staff were lovely. The animals seemed well cared for, the rabbits water bottle under the slide was empty but I'm sure it was just missed due to the place being busy. It cost around a fiver per person and there is an indoor and outdoor play area. It cost extra to ride on the other bits and bobs. On the whole had a good morning. Thank you

We first visited here yesterday (Sunday 27/07/14) with a view to checking it out to see if we might bring our grandchildren here. Our immediate impression on arrival was what a lovely clean well-kept farm and playgrounds. I asked for two tickets and the reception person did not bombard or pressurise us into paying for any extras, We loved the experience of wandering round seeing so many very happy children and families. There is so much to do both indoors and outdoors. All the animals seem well cared for and the indoor enclosures are very clean and the outdoor paddock are well maintained. The surrounding countryside is very beautiful. We didn't eat here so we cant comment on the café but we did notice that there is the option to take picnics which is a good idea at a family venue. We will definitely come back and this time with the grandchildren.

Just got back from a visit to the farm. Been there since 11.00 am and it is now 5.00 pm. Went with my daughter and two grandsons and was hoping that it would not be like another theme park and it was anything but. The time just flew by and the amenities and food were fabulous. Lots for the children to do they were never bored and they learnt a lot about looking after animals. You can either eat in or have a picnic outside taking your own food. Staff fantastic nothing too much trouble, highly recommend it and, having looked at up an coming events they have available up to Christmas, am looking forward to going again.
