Wonderful for all ages, being able to feed and handle the baby animals made my daughter's day. We stayed for around 4 hours, I would say that was ample time to do all the scheduled activities and wonder around at own pace.

We have been here a few times before and thought it would be nice to write a review to help people what to expect. The park opens at 10am with the first feeding starting at 10.30! The farm closes at 5pm. Car parking is free opposite and plenty of parking. We have two young children 3 and 1 and they... More

We went with two children aged 4 and 6. You could walk round the farm in an hour so we spent alot of time standing around or sat in the park. Cafe overpriced but kids enjoyed their morning out.

We visited on Bank Holiday Monday with our son and grand daughter (3), and had a wonderful day. All the staff were knowledgeable and friendly and the set up was great for a actively curious 3 year old. Hand feeding the calves and the kid goats was a brilliant experience for our grand daughter. There was so much to do... More

We went as a couple and had a great day seeing all the animals especially an escaping goat we named Houdini. Wheelchair accessible and fun place to spend a few hours. Also has a lovely farm shop with lots of tasty goodies.

We've been visiting the farm for several years now with various grandchildren, our latest being last Saturday (April 29th). Every time we go, it's improved from the previous visit and this one was no exception. Going in the afternoon suited us on this occasion and, despite it being yet another bank holiday weekend, there were plenty of spaces in the... More

Good day. Was busy but not overly challenging make sure you get to the lamb feeding. Well worth it. I would also suggest a picnic as food is limited

We thank this contributor for the positive review, however we would like to clarify one little point, Longdown Activity Farm does not have any lambs because of the high risk of cross infection to pregnant mothers, we do have over 100 goat kids that really, do enjoy being bottled fed as well as 20 or so calves, we hope that...

Visited one early afternoon the weekend before easter, which was a good move because of the wonderful weather, and we knew how busy it would be over the easter holidays. We booked online (great with the 10% discount) Had a great time looking at all the animals, and being able to feed them to (the baby goats where a particular... More

We visited during the Easter holidays, we got to the farm around mid day and the car park was packed out so advise getting their earlier on busy days. Although pricey at £31 for two adults and two children the farm was filled with plenty of activities for the children. When we arrived we fed the pigs, although the farm... More
