Changed since the last time i came....The play barn is not as good as before it was redone. Animals are now in a large area outside which was great. Food options in the barn are bland and expensive for what you get.

Amerton farm has so much to offer so many different people! It’s a great place to visit as we always buy different bits from local produce to cards and gardening equipment. The cafe has amazing food too. Just wish the soft play entry was less.More
