We visited today and stayed for a few hrs with our 19 month old. It's ok - not very many animals or activities going on though. The admission is way too high - Farmer Palmers is cheaper and they have many more animals and activities!...More

We took my children and their cousins for a visit in July. It's a fantastic place for children under 8. My kids especially enjoyed taking the goats for a walk. Take a packed lunch, the cafe is over priced.
