Booked a party in April. Too cold to be taking the kids out on the tractor ride. Nice little hut for the kids meal but no lights and absolutely freezing! Food proportions way to big for such little children but at least there was plenty! For the price I would suggest giving the parents a cup of tea or invest... More

We had a lovely day at the farm. It was very quiet on a Friday when the kids had gone back to school so we got the farm to ourselves for most of the day. The official timetable of feeds/petting was a bit unnecessary so the young guy who was there just helped us out when we wanted to do... More

Arrived at 5 past 3 to be told last admission is at 3 after we drove 30 minutes to get there. Said we would leave on time but they still wouldn't let us in!! Very rude young men smoking and acting suspicious outside (they worked there)

I took my almost 2yr old and my 6 month old to the farm with my husband and their nan. We had a lovely few hours looking at all the animals and playing in the indoor play areas. We also had a tractor ride which my daughter loved. Alot of the attractions were too old for my children (go karts,... More

We spent a few hours here last week and found the farm to be really good value for the money (we had a family voucher from metro radio). As well as the farm there are indoor go carts and a play area. Staff went out of their way to speak and were very friendly. A must do with young children... More

Myself and My Sister decided to take my 18 month old Daughter to Tweddle Farm yesterday, and we were not disappointed. My little girl loved the variety of animals and being able to feed the calf. For the 3 hours we were there, she wasn't bored once. The outdoor playground could do with a bit of an update, but we... More

Visited with my 3 year old and son and cost us nearly £20 and I think this is over priced. The place is looking run down and needs money spending to get it up to the level of nearby children's farms. The variety of animals is a little disappointing. The park area is terrible and really needs adding to and... More

We'd read mixed reviews on trip advisor but we still decided it was worth the £6.50 entry fee with the two for one voucher we had. The farm was very run down, paint flaking off and rotten wood all on display. Outdated play area and dirty indoor soft play. We lasted 40 minutes before we left due to it being,... More

Staff at the farm were quite friendly and helpful. We spent time around the animals, which was great for our Granddaughter and she loved the tractor ride which was included in the admission price. There are picnic tables and outdoor equipment for the children. Unfortunately, from a grown up point of view, the whole place needs attention. The toilets and... More

We got a discount entry voucher off the metro radio offers website (valid until 31st October so if you're planning to visit make sure you download one!) which meant we got 2 adults and 2 children in for £12 instead of £22 which was great value. I think I'd have been a bit disappointed with the day if we had... More
