Our farm is a family run business. We have been open to the public for 28 years and we are growing every year. We like to ensure that the kids get a real hands on experience with our animals, letting them hands and feed our animals with our staff. We have many different play areas for the kids as well to make sure they have as much fun as possible. On average most families spend 2-3 hours with us. Many stay for a whole day of fun.

This is a very child friendly place and good for grandparents too as you can get a pass that lets you in free most days during the summer until Sept/Oct time apart from weekends and bank holidays. Small cafe but plenty of picnic tables so pack a picnic. Barrel rides for kids and tractor and pony rides during the summer.... More

I would highly recommend spending a day at the farm. I went with young children and there was plenty of animals to see and places for the children to play. Hand washing facilities around the areas where the children were around the pets. It was a bit hard pushing the pram around the farm in the further out walking area.... More

Thank you for your review. In so delighted that you would reccomend us for a day out. My dad has it on his list over winter to work on our nature trail path, so hopefully it will be easier after that. Thank you again. Helen. More

Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention. We do have a few signs around the cafe about nut allergy but as you said only one on the ice cream bar, so we will make sure to make more and make them bigger so as to make it clear. We really appreciate you letting us know about this... More

Have visited stream Vale with my nursery a few times and have always found the staff helpful and polite. There's loads to see and do and an eating area where you can bring your own. Also bring a few pound to spend at the shop.

Thank you for a lovely review. Unfortunately as we are a dairy farm as well we need all our indoor space for the cows in winter. We also think it's important to let the animals get a bit of break and just do what they want to do for a wee bit. When we close we open up the pets... More

Streamvale farm is a fantastic place to visit. I remember going as a child and now I go regularly with my daughters. I have a season ticket which is brilliant and there is so much for my girls to see. Even at only 10 months they get so much from a visit and love petting the animals (especially the rabbits),...
