Overpriced for what you get
Jul 2021 • Family
More staff required. Animal encounters poorly timed and not many compared to other places we have visited. Some attractions closed due to poor weather.

Nice farm but not for older children
Jul 2021
It’s a lovely farm but more geared towards young children. Despite the website promoting it a place for all ages there isn’t much to do for older children. The pedal karts were good and football shootout and crazy golf were ok but after a quick tour of the animals there wasn’t much else to do. However, there is plenty to do for younger children, playground, soft play, trampolines etc. Little cafe was good.

Definitely worth a visit-be sure to eat in The Cow after!
Jul 2021 • Family
We visited in July and we could not fault the farm park at all! We had a fabulous time. There is plenty to see and do including the animals, go karts, slide, indoor hay bale play area etc. We had to book a time slot on line for soft play but actually we really liked this as it meant that it wasn’t to busy for our four year old. The park is extremely clean, well maintained and the staff were lovely. We ate dinner in the Cow in the afternoon, the decor was great, the staff polite and friendly and our meals were honestly amazing. All in all it was a pleasure from start to finish and well worth the visit.

A nice main disappointment for dessert but overall smashing
Jul 2021 • Couples
Went for an evening meal, lovely food, fantastic staff and reasonably priced.
Like everywhere currently tables are spaced out so please book!
The food was lovely, steak was great and the rosemary salted chips to die for.
The decor and ambiance is smashing too. Only downside was - where are the fabulous milkshakes???
Now I'm a desert freak so the extremely limited sweet/desert menu totally gutted me so don't hold your hopes out on this one as you'll be overly disappointed. Also I really hate paper bowls so cutting steak on these was horrendous apart from that - wondefgul

A fun day for all

An other great day out! Kids and adults loved it, always clean and well run. The pedal go karts and bay bales were a hi light. Great job guys

Great family day out
Jun 2021 • Family
Was recommended this place by a friend. We visited and we’re not disappointed. There was loads to do and lots to see. Plenty of room for my little one to run around and explore and burn off loads of energy. She had a really good time feeding the wallabies! The only disappointment (for me) was my little one was too young to do the aqua park. Maybe next time.

Fantastic family day out
Jul 2021 • Family
Such a lovely day out.

Family day with 2 and 5 year old, loads to do for everyone. Could of happily stayed all day
Reviews on cafe must have been one offs, amazing choice, lots of none junk food items.
We ate in the Cow which was soon good.
The park and animals are clean and well presented. We didn't have to queue for anything. Weather was fantastic which probably has a positive effect too

Fun for all ages
Jun 2021 • Family
Lots of fun for all ages here, kids had a ball and great seating areas for adults to keep an eye on the children. Restricted to three hour sessions due to Covid, could have easily spent all day.

Would benefit from ev charging points. Only two Tesla only outlets.

So much to do
Jul 2021
We came here for a rainy day as there seemed to be so much to do inside, acres of playgrounds and barn areas to explore and burn off some energy. The animals were well looked after and very nicely laid out for visitors to see. But the play areas take the gold medal - truly something for everyone and we could have easily spent a full day here if it wasnt for the timed session covid restrictions. Well worth visiting for families.

Plenty to do, shame about cleanliness
Jul 2021 • Family
We visited whilst on holiday with our 2 children. There was a great selection of activities to do including the go karts, bouncing pillows and a toboggan. Unfortunately due to the timed ticket limiting us to 3 hours, we didn't get around all the animals.
I think what really let this place down is the cleanliness. The toilets were absolutely filthy and it was awful taking our child in there. We also went to use one of your highchairs when we had a drink, but they were all dirty and sticky and looked like they'd never been cleaned.
Social distancing on opening was also non existent as everyone appears to see the animals in the barn first. There is a one way system, but the shear volume of people is too many.
Unless the above issues are resolved, we would not return.
