Took our young grandchildren (1-3 years old), although not the biggest working farm we have been to definitely one of the best. They enjoyed feeding goats, sheep and getting up close and personnal with pigs and chicks. Plenty to see and do to while away 2-3 hours. Cafe is fairly expensive and service slow, more importantly the young man serving... More

The farm itself is as you would expect. The kids loved the animals and the staff working are nice but for the entry price, I was expecting much more. There were not many animals, the indoor play area was sparse. It was a shame that the weather was so cold but it was disappointing. The big thumbs up was the... More

We go to Farmer Gows regularly as my three boys love the handling session, riding on the tractor trailer (if the fields are dry enough) and playing on the straw bales. One of their favourite things is feeding the baby lambs milk from the bottles. A very friendly, child oriented place. They also to excellent Christmas trees.

We love visiting Farmer Gows and have done for the past 2 years. The staff here are excellent; helpful and always have a smile! Feeding the animals is fun for all ages and the play areas are a welcome addition. Most importantly though is that our little boy loves visiting and we continue to have a great family days out...

We had an excellent day out at Farmer Gows , everything was well organised from the trailer ride to the animal handling and the hand washing facilities were tip top. Hard to pick out a favourite activity but the bale climbing was great.

What a great little farm. We went as part of a group with five 2.5 years olds and a couple of babies. The 2.5 year olds absolutely loved it!! They fed animals, got close to them, and were able to touch them. They also collected eggs, went on a tractor ride, ran around the hay bales, and rode little ride-on... More

Went to Farmer Gows today, it was our first visit, and we would definitely go again. I feel children from 5-10 years is the best age group to appreciate all the animal;s and attractions. The staff were very informative and when I realised I had forgotten sun lotion and hats they happily supplied some. The children I took were 5... More

Great feeding time and turkey poult handling - our one and three year olds loved both and they were well organised. Also good were the toy tractors, combine climbing frame and sand pit. Glad we took a picnic as food queues were a bit slow at lunchtime. Unfortunate though that the tractor ride started half an hour later than scheduled,... More

Spent a great few hours getting close up with the animals. A lovely setting great amenities. We arrived just before the tractor ride out to see the cattle, pigs and goats being fed which was fun and really informative. We opted for a quick food break on return. The menu was not extensive but ample to keep us going. We... More
