A really interactive farm, great for young children. Lovely indoor and outdoor play areas too. Our little man (17 months), had a great time and especially enjoyed the ride on tractors.

We apologise Emma, the guineapig handling happens 3 times a day to ensure everyone gets a turn. Please forward your contact details to info@farmerpalmers.co.uk so we can contact you personally after Christmas. Our timetables are produced for each day so we will check for you.

We recently visited Farmer Parmer's twice within a few days, the second time half price. I can strongly recommend this as a great day out with kids, so many hands on animal activities, the staff are informative and the food in the restaurant is great.

This was our 2nd visit and just as good as the first, children absolutely love it and just want to run from one activity to the next. Day is both fun and educational. Highly recommend.
