Visited here in the school holidays with 2 small boys (7yr old and a 3 yr old). The car park was large and free which made a nice change. Paid £22 for 1 adult and 2 kids which included 2 paper bags of animal food....More

Paid £25 for 2 adults and 2 children for what is a just small farm, a couple of play areas and a very average cafe. It is nice enough as a farm and a play area for children but only really a couple of hours...More

Not only a variety of animals they have many children's play areas spread through the site. For £1 a bag of food is available to give the children an opportunity to feed many of the animals. The Cafe and gift shop were both reasonably priced.

Unfortunately we were underwhelmed by our experience. The staff who did the meet and greets looked like they would rather be anywhere else and interacted minimally with the children and adults alike. There is the potential for the park to be good with some more...More

So much to do we didn't have time! Kids loved it, weather was perfect. Worth a trip! Nice little cafe. Bouncy castle room and plenty of climbing frames in between each section of the Farm.

Yes. The grounds are mainly gravel based so depending on the wheelchair may be tricky to push in places, but that said the grounds are mainly flat so good for prams/wheelchairs etc. It's a lovely day out when sunny!
