This place is great for little ones. Although this occasion was for a friend's daughter's birthday party we have visited previously as a family. There's loads for little ones to do and feeding time is exciting for them. Will definitely visit again.

We were looking for somewhere sheltered from the freezing January temperatures, and couldn't have hoped for such a great day out. The farm, animals and facilities are immaculate. Our nearly 2 year old loved all the tractors. Attentive staff made the day really special, encouraging our son to meet and feed the animals - thanks Keeley and all the team.

We have made a no. of visits with our family and it has always been enjoyable. The kids 3,4,5,and 6 love feeding all the animals and going on the farm rides in particular the snake which are carts pulled along by a tractor and which "snake" around.

Wow. What a fantastic set up for the Lapland experience. My little girl, aged 5, throughly loved it and everyone there could not do enough to make it a great trip. I hope that it's on again this year and that it snows! Thank you to everyone!

Great farm full of lovely animals for all the family to see and feed. There is lots to do and some indoor activities for the kids. Average price to get into the farm. Worth going on a sunny day.
