It is a long time since I last visited, what a change, totally revamped. Much better more interesting things for the kids to do. The animals are more accessible too and the kids loved the interaction.

One of the better farms around to visit. Loads of different animals to see. The animals are not too spread out and the tractor ride is a good one!

Many thanks for your review. We were very proud to be awarded a Silver at the VisitEngland Awards in April this year. We are pleased you enjoyed the tractor ride and the variety of animals on offer.

A very enjoyable day out where the kids (4 & 1) were able to see animals up close and take part in activities. Will definitely be back!
