Was very happy with our family day out here, little ones really enjoyed all the animals, playing on the pedal karts and the tractor ride.

We have visited many farms all around the North east, And Out of them all we keep coming back to this one. It's a good 40 mins drive from our home but we always look forward to visiting. The kids aged 5 and 9 love the schedule of activities, that include feeding and petting times, bottle feeding the calf and... More

I was slightly disappointed by this children's farm. All seemed a bit out of touch. Not altogether as clean as I would like to see. Certainly there were quite a few attractions as well as animals but felt that there could have been more animals and more interaction for children

Visited while staying in Hartlepool and after reading some of the reviews was a bit sceptical but it was far better than expected. I have to say if you have not been just for seeing Santa alone you're depriving your kids of a great experience in a grotto that has clearly had huge amounts of money and effort put in... More

Went there with the kids (1 and 6) and had a great day. Relatively cheap for a family of four and spent the best part of the day there. Plenty animal interaction with children and other things for them to do like soft play and play parks. On site cafe was nice to stop off for a coffee and cake.... More

We visited for the see Santa experience, it was excellent value for money compared to seeing Santa in a shopping centre and queuing for ages, firstly we were taken on a tractor ride around the farm and it played Christmas songs in the trailer, we were then met by Santa's elf who took us through an excellently decorated and lit...

Booked a party in April. Too cold to be taking the kids out on the tractor ride. Nice little hut for the kids meal but no lights and absolutely freezing! Food proportions way to big for such little children but at least there was plenty! For the price I would suggest giving the parents a cup of tea or invest... More

We had a lovely day at the farm. It was very quiet on a Friday when the kids had gone back to school so we got the farm to ourselves for most of the day. The official timetable of feeds/petting was a bit unnecessary so the young guy who was there just helped us out when we wanted to do... More

Arrived at 5 past 3 to be told last admission is at 3 after we drove 30 minutes to get there. Said we would leave on time but they still wouldn't let us in!! Very rude young men smoking and acting suspicious outside (they worked there)

I took my almost 2yr old and my 6 month old to the farm with my husband and their nan. We had a lovely few hours looking at all the animals and playing in the indoor play areas. We also had a tractor ride which my daughter loved. Alot of the attractions were too old for my children (go karts,... More
