Recently visited the farm with my 4 year old daughter. Not a traditional farm with lots of pigs, sheep and cows but this didn't matter.
We saw goats, donkeys, lots of owls and plenty of chickens, ducks and geese plus rabbits, guinea pigs and even a talking bird!
We spent a lot of time walking round the farm before eating in the cafe which was great value for money!

The nature trail was good and something different to what we've seen at other farms. There are questions to answer on the way round and things to look and listen for too - very educational!

When you've had enough of the animals there are plenty of play areas including a huge play barn suitable for all ages. The cafe in this barn was closed on our visit but I'm sure it would make a great place to stop and eat!

The farm was quiet when we were there so the staff were very attentive and happy to talk and get the animals out for petting etc. donkey rides are an extra cost!

A group of friends spent a wonderful day enjoying the outdoor play areas, and animals. Our party consisted of 7 adults and around 8 children between the ages of 4-7 .

The outdoor play ground near the entrance kept the kids entertained whilst we could picnic also. There was a little hut/ shed where you can have a picnic if it rains which looked fantastic. There isn't much to see with regards to animals, so we headed to the bottom of the field play area. This was great for young children, and is well hidden so you could easily miss it. The milk float driver was great and gave the kids a ride back to the top of the field.

The indoor soft play also kept the children amused for another hour. We didn't eat there so Not sure about the cafe but it looked fine

Fantastic value for money, and very often there are vouchers in the local press. I haven't been for a few years but can't wait to return

Wow so pleased we found this little gem, we've been to quite a few farm parks and this is by far the best one. Children's party was fab, the staff on the whole site where great. Will definitely be returning.
Great owl section .

Cannot believe that we have only discovered this place. Absolutely fantastic. Plenty to see and do. Lovely trail walk, play grounds and of course the animals which are well cared for. The Easter parade was a huge hit with our kids today. Highlight a pig dressed as an Easter Egg and a pony as a bubble bee. Can't wait to go back. Also have to mention the staff - friendly, chatty and happy. What more could you want for family day out apart from sunshine!!!
