We took our baby granddaughter & she loved it. At the time we went the weather was showery but there is plenty for children to do & look at indoors.

Until last summer (my 2 youngest are not so young now!!) we had many, many visits to Farmer Palmers. Always a friendly welcome, very well organised, fantastic value for money, plenty of animal interaction, lovely food........where do I stop, also the sun usually shone, or at least it was usually dry. The fun we all had feeding the sheep, goats... More

We attended for a children's birthday party, we were really impressed. The farm is great with loads to do for the kids. The kids got to hold the guinea pigs and feed the baby goats as well as a tractor ride! The food in the café was also great. We will def be back for another visit! Thanks

Unfortunately my review has to be based around my experience when supporting people who have learning disabilities and I have to say that I was very disappointed that the park do not offer significant concessions for people who have disabilities and their support staff... The only reason that we visit is because one of the young men that I support... More

Good for young children to bond with animals although under 4's may be a little frightened, lots of minor "activities" for kids to enjoy, and a great family day out with lunch possibilities as well, recommend for families both local and visiting, grandparents will also enjoy their grandchildren. The jeep tour will be suitable for older ones.

We love to get reviews and thank you. Were a little confused by the "jeep tour". Is this our tractor trailer ride? If so adults and children under 8 usually love it. We appreciate little ones can learn so much about the animals and our full timetable is on every day. Hope to see you again very soon! More
