“Small children will love the deer and other animals”

A family visit with three generations ranging from 1 to 66 was a happy day out especially for the little ones. The deer safari is the highlight and, if you get the wonderful old man who knows all the stags by name and tells you all about the farm in his lovely Norfolk accent, you are in for a treat! The deer feeding is a great experience as others have said. But there is the chance for children to experience close contact with a range of other animals too. There is a play area for toddlers mainly with sandpit and pedal tractors which our 3 year old grandson loved. It has a good cafe with terrace. Really recommended for families with smaller children.

Visited here at 11.45am on the last day of the Groupon, and it was packed so the next available deer safari ride was at 2pm, the time when I had to leave to start the 1hr 45minute return journey home. I explained this at the front desk to the guy who was taking the tickets, and without hesitation he quickly worked out the approximate weights on the tractor ride and got us onto the next tractor leaving two minutes later.
The deer safari itself was stunning. Everyone on board was able to feed the deer by hand and pet them. Rufus the stag even allowed me to stroke his antlers several times, and there was no hint of aggression. Each deer was known by name to the safari guide, no mean feat considering there are over 50 of them! The rest of the farm area comprised goats, pigs(what out, they nip unintentionally!) shetland ponies, cattle, and my favourite, the lambs. Although I didn't get to bottle feed one, they adore being petted and will run to meet you and love to be stroked and have their ears and chin tickled.

I wish I had allowed more time as the animals were wonderful and so friendly.

Visited here yesterday with hubby and 8 year old daughter.
AMAZING!!! Lots of stuff for kids to do, playground, little ride on tractors, feed the pigs, sheep, goats, groom the ponies, egg collecting. Nice little cafe. But icing in the cake was the deer safari... WOW! We got pulled by a tractor and went to feed the deer by hand, beautiful surroundings for the deer. Was so lovely to get to be so near to these usually timid creatures, great tour guide fellow, who told us all about deer and the history around about Snettisham... Great day out

We had the most lovely day here. So much to do and the staff were all very informative and helpful. My nine year old goddaughter loved all the hands on egg collecting, animal feeding and cuddling sessions. My husband is wheelchair dependant so while the rest of our group went on the excellent Deer Safari we tried the Farm Trail. Unfortunately Ray upturned his electric Trike but was unhurt and the Staff soon came to our rescue as if it were an everyday occurrence and lifted him back into it as if he were as light as a feather! They were most concerned for our wellbeing, very caring people. All in all one of the best Farm Parks we have ever visited and we thoroughly recommend it.

A lovely place, well-looked after and maintained. A fair bit for kids to do; play area, farm, mini tractors, trails and food in the café but the deer safari was amazing - seeing the animals close up, feeding them and stroking them! The commentary was very funny too! Zorbing available too thanks to XS Pursuits!
