Visited with Grandson and was disappointed...felt it was little more than a café and soft play area. There was a few sandpits with a few tatty toys in them and the water feature in one of the sand pits wasn't working and I had to ask for it to be switched on. There was a water race game where you had to squirt water to push a pig along a track….3 out of the 4 water handles were broken so rendered the game unusable. The indoor soft play was good and my grandson enjoyed it the most. My main concern was for the welfare of the rabbits. The rabbits were kept in hutches that had nothing in them but water and straw...no stimulus at all for the rabbits. They were taken out and put on a table to be stroked by children but other than that just confined to a boring cage. Although the cages were clean and would just about meet RSPCA guidelines I felt more could be done to enhance their lives and with so much space on the farm it would have been nice to see them in an outdoor space. When I asked the lady doing the rabbit petting session about their confined space she said they have problems with foxes.... but secure outdoor space is achievable even if they are brought in overnight. Rabbits should also have constant access to hay as they eat constantly...straw isn't adequate. Some of the chickens also had no shade and it was 25 degrees and their water tray was filthy with green slime. I wouldn't recommend going.
Goodness Denise, what a shame that you didn't enjoy your day. We take the utmost care with our animals and they are regularly inspected by the local EHO with a clear bill of health. I take all your comments on board and if we look to change in the future we will think again. It is a shame that you didn't go on the toboggan ride, or giant swing, or ride on tractors or the big digger or the tractor trailer ride? Best Wishes, Sally
