Cannot believe I drove 30 miles to visit this place. Basically it’s a couple of fields and an old barn with no much there at all. The entry price is ridiculous for what you get in return and also everything even half decent incurs a...More

Love this place keeps the kids entertained as there is plenty to do. There is plenty of space to eat picnics Which is good. The kids enjoyed feeding the animals and holding the bunnies

Paid £23 to get into what you could only describe as a park with a few animals thrown in. Spent about 30 minutes there as nothing much to do once walked around. There are things there you can pay extra for which you have to...More

Visited with my 17 month old, even though young he thoroughly enjoyed all the animals and the tractors by the barn. I recommend to buy some feed for the animals. Will be going back the next time we visit.
