Overview

A great family day out come rain or shine! Meet & feed the animals in Pets Corner. Hop on a tractor ride to explore the farm. Sit and relax with a cup of tea and a slice of homemade cake from the tearoom, while the children run off steam in the heated indoor play barn or outdoor adventure play. There's lots to do whatever the weather! Twice daily toddler time sessions every weekday in term time, include bubbles, stories & games for the little ones. During school holidays there is a year round calendar of themed activities & special events to keep you busy all day. So go and enjoy some 'Hands on Farm Fun & Adventures' with the help of the Roves Farm team.

High prices - but was impressed with the amount of activities available over the Easter bank holiday. Children enjoyed the play area indoors, the tractors, the crafts with a member of staff, the gift shop, and the animals. They even got to hold Guinea pigs,...More

I took my sister and her family here as a day out. I was rather surprised at the cost of entrance and do not feel we'd visit again. There was a tractor ride which was the best bit.
