Overview

Enjoy a fantastic FREE day out on a real working farm. We have free parking and our paths are free to walk 7 days a week. You can see our animals all year round, and explore our woodlands (you may even find a play area hidden inside them). We have a cafe, shop and pub on site so you can even taste the produce that comes from our land.

Not at all dog friendly. Was told today dogs are not welcome as it frightens the pheasants. Won't be coming back anytime soon

I wasn't aware this was here and it is free. It was an interesting place to take a look at the animals. Lots of pigs and chickens amongst others. Best to wear your wellies in the winter.

Speaking with authority regarding the concept of the working farm and the business plan, which affords additional monetary resources being gained from sharing the farming experience with the general public. Church Farm failed in delivering this unique experience. Their concept is to pick the pockets...More

I visited the farm with my three year old daughter having booked a ‘feed the chickens’ experience. It’s was great fun and well organised.

Second time out to Church Farm. Had a lovely Sunday morning stroll seeing all the animals, cows, pigs, sheep and chickens. Great for families and nice they have facilities such as shops, a cafe and toilets. Will certainly come back again.

we visited this in high hopes with our 2 year old grandson. What a shock to find outdated, tired tractors, toy cars and play area. The whole place disappointed with poor signage, a lack of welcome and a few animals looking bored.

Hi Nicole, Yes dogs are welcome! Please keep them on a lead and there is a waste bin in the village out the front of the farm.

The entrance to the farm is right opposite the pub the Jolly Waggoner, there are greens just in front of it and what looks like a lane that will take you around to the yard/parking area and where the shop and cafe are.
