“Lovely and friendly ”

Greenlands Farm Village
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Absolutely fantastic little farm.
The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and ensure you get the most out of your time there allowing you to pet the animals.
Even when we were walking around the farm staff would appear and offer information.
The animals are well cared for and have plenty of space. There's a big enough variety of animals and plenty to do keep little ones interested.
My 2.5 Yr old had an amazing time would highly recommend a visit.

Thank Helen W

It very nice place but I prefer to move away the pigs.

The staff very helpful with children.

Hand sanitizer is recommended especially for children

We took 3 grandkids here, they loved the whole thing. Being able to pet the rabbits & guinea pigs, one had a donkey ride, seeing & handling various reptiles was great. With a break in the indoor play area & then some lunch in the café, they were back at the main farm area again, finishing with a lovely ice cream. A good day was had by all. My only negative was that some parents/guardians didn't watch their kids well when animals were being handled.

Firstly, this is a great place to bring younger children for the day. The site has expanded over recent years and more country businesses have moved in to premises there. There's a good farm shop, excellent cafe, great garden centre. Plenty for the kids to do, feeding animals, hands on with animals big and small (& reptiles), and new, a 'beach' area with a large paddling pool and sanded area set next to a small outside play barn and picnic area. Brilliant for kids up to around 11-12 I'd guess.
BRING A PICNIC. The eateries on site are pricey. Great for a cup of tea but we spent £36 for 3 sandwiches, 3 drinks and 3 cakes, having spent £21.50 to get in (2 adults, 1 child who wanted to go around farm and into playbarn).
However, the lack of clear signage to different areas (some fingerposts would be nice) was disappointing, and whilst the staff were friendly and knowledgeable, they lacked a bit of initiative. Example. Directed to go to entrance hall to ask for sandwiches which directs on to the cafe. Sandwiches are made to order. No thought of saying 'But there are sandwiches in the shop / upstairs in the Tea Lounge / or there are snacks like teacakes available in the play barn'. £36 is a lot. Come on.
In the playbarn one of the girls on duty was busy flirting with a bloke; the other 3 were running around doing stocktaking, serving, signing people in, taking orders out, mopping up spills. Fortunately a senior turned up and better organised them.
And in both the Playbarn and the 'Beach' area music was turned up it would seem for the entertainment of the staff rather than the enjoyment of the customers. Is that really necessary? No objection to it being on in the background, but I do like to talk to my family, even my mother, not being proficient in semaphore.
The 'Beach' area. A large purpose-built paddling pool, 6Mx3M I'd guess, ankle-deep...I'm not sure about the farm dog Lennie running in and out of it and the sanded area chasing a ball thrown for it by the staff, whilst young children were paddling / playing there.
Finally...clearly a lot of money gone into the place recently. Some of it could be spent with smoothing out access in and around the place, both inside and out.
It IS good. Really good. It IS worth the visit. Coming on nicely. It just needs a few things ironing out.

We were horrified to see the pitiful neglected animals ,we wouldn't have minded paying the overpriced entrance fee of £32 for 2 adults and 2 children if there was evidence that the animals were properly looked after but they clearly are not.
Some of the animals were in need of vets attention and to take young children to see these was a big mistake
