“Hoo Farm Telford or should it be called What Farm?”

Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom
Ranked #2 of 40 things to do in Telford
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 March 2008

Complete disappointment and a rip off!

They charge just over a fiver for kids AND adults, then they sting you £3 quid for a pony ride, £4 quid for a quad bike ride and offer a "wide choice of crafts" (which is basically the opportunity to paint a tile!) at a charge of £2.50 per child. They advertise that they have a wide variety of food on site (There was a selection of 8 refrigerated sandwiches) a gift shop (selling sun bleached foam garden windmills!) and a large play area.... which consists of a deflated bouncy castle and wooden tractor which probably hasn't seen a lick of paint since it opened in 1993! The animals also appear to be mistreat and miserable. If you have money to burn and time to waste go here! We paid 28 quid and spent 40 minutes walking around unkept woodland admiring plastic / ornamental animals in the forest! Hardly a day out OR visitor attraction as it claims to be!!!!!
