We visited Fairytale Farm yesterday afternoon with my fiance's 5 year old girl and we had an awesome day! If you are expecting Alton Towers then you will be disappointed but if you want somewhere local where your children can run around to their hearts content, playing and seeing some wonderful animals you can't go wrong here. Entrance fee is minimal (£5 for adults, £4.75 for little 'uns but I think under 3's are free) and I have to admit, I'm not sure where else we can spend £15 and get 4 hours of a child being thoroughly amused so great value for money. We went during the Alien Invasion weekend so that was great (little one particularly enjoyed the Dalek singing Let It Go to her!) and we adults found it really hard to tear ourselves away from the animals :) The owners and staff are around and we spent ages talking to them and getting information about the animals - never have I been somewhere the staff are so friendly and welcoming! Do go and see the pigs because they are amazing and they love a nose scritch and will talk to you to get attention, its brilliant! A huge, huge plus for me is that most of the animals are rescued or donated to the farm and they are now so well loved it really shows (I'm not a fan of zoo's on the whole so this is fab to see).
You can buy an annual pass and for us as locals this is probably what we will do because the little one loved the playground and I'm hoping to smuggle Winston and Edgar the pigs out so an annual pass and a very big handbag are on the cards! ;)
Do give this place a try if you are in the vicinity, I don't think you will be disappointed.
