Overview

Fancys Farm is free to enter and is open every day of the year except Christmas Day from 10am to 5pm. Most of our wide variety of animals are super friendly and love to be petted. Feed is available in the main building at £1 per cup. We have a children's play room and outside toys which are all donated as we can't afford to buy them. All of our animals receive the best care possible but some are rescued and may not look at their best as they are recovering from previous poor care. All of our friendly staff are happy to help and answer any questions that you may have, if you would like a free tour please ask for Jon. Our shop sells a variety of meat and eggs produced on the farm along with hot and cold food and drinks. Please enjoy your visit.

In the blistering July heat and with the menacing fences this place looked deserted and so depressing from the outside. Seemed more like an extension of the prison nearby than a family farm. This really discouraged us so that we did not enter and went...More

Why do a review of you haven't visited? Everything is suffering with the heat and we have had to move a lot of animals to better grazing. Come in you might be surprised.

Had a wander around on a damp morning. Plenty to keep the smaller ones occupied. The goats are great fun and get up to all sorts of antics. Worth a visit if your in the area.

We passed the farm whilst walking round the island and thought it seemed really nice - we came in to feed the geese and ducks it was a great start to the day.

It's pretty good... No steps. It is set on a hill so a strong push is required in places. I would be happy to take someone with a chair though!
