So off in the gate you go looks good needs some work but thats ok , get to the counter guy gives great talk about what animals are there and gives us out carrots we were away.... Get hounded by geese and ducks have to feed them half bucket of carrots.. Before entering the rabbits and ginnie pigs, there were so many alot sore and ruffed up . They all fought over the carrots... ( it doesnt open till 9.30 they should have had the brekky by now ready to nibble some carrots not fight over them) had to get out of there and try find the next lot of animals . Trying to bypass the bouncy castle with my two year old because it was so grotty with scum doesnt look like it was cleaned in years . Over to the ponies we were heading one little white one bites and front foots not good for little kids who dont yet understand to keep away from that one. The cow and donkey were sleeping or over being there just as much as we were getitng to be . Any way we still push on to see whats next .. Oh look lamas and goats with horns nearly jumping the fence (probably trying to escape aswell). Tipped the rest of our buckets out for them to eat the left didnt even want to go see state of bathrooms to wash up , babywipes in the car will do . A lot of money for maybe 3 carrots all up. Should have known better when we arrived my little girl didnt even want to go anywhere near the place and she LOVES animals

Our 5 & 3year old girls loved this place :) lots of animals to feed and cuddle, indoor play ground was also good, it is a bit run down but didn't stop us having fun :)

This place was very run down, unclean in parts and not very well maintained. While I don't expect a country farm property to be pristine, it's offering was a let down for the entry price and we stayed about half an hour. We took a merry-go-round ride and the leg of the horse in front of me was hanging off through rust. There also was limited food offering. The "cafe" - what a joke - has an offering of packets of chips and a coffee vending machine and a few plastic tables and chairs which look like they haven't been washed since they were put in there. There were also a few toddler game tables with spilt drinks all over them and full of dust.

The animals were the only highlight I have to say but really for the samll amount that were there you could save yourself the effort and enjoy the farmlife in its natural surrounds.

Disappointing!

This place is very run down with a lot of potential.
Spent a good couple of hours here. We visited on a Monday so was very quiet, that worked in our favour though as we didnt have to queue for anything.
Most importantly the kids had a great time!
