A shame to see that the sheep centre has closed following the retirement of the owner. I have taken many a school trip to the centre and have always enjoyed the company of Terry the boss man. After 30 years Terry has retired but has moved to Middle farm, Firle, on the A27, about 20 mins drive away, is hosting... More

Very interesting visit where you can learn how to shave a sheep, and see it for real. Nice walk in the farmhouse, the largest collection of sheep breeds in the world.

My family and I absolutely love this place. I am so sad that it had closed down. Terry was great and full of knowledge. He taught us so much about the wonders of wool. I now make a point of buying good quality wool products where I can. Thank you for all of the wonderful days out and for all... More

I have been visiting here since I was a child and I now come with my own children. We visit every year and are so sad it is closing. This is a working farm run by a lovely, friendly family. The animals are clearly well cared for and there is plenty to do here. As others have said this is... More

If you love sheep, are slightly interested in learning more about them, or have kids and looking for something to do to kill 2 hours, this is a great option. My three kids, ages 11, 11 and 12 loved feeding the sheep and watching a sheep get sheared. Give it a try!

It makes me really angry to see the last couple negative comments on here. People should keep in mind that this is a working farm and not a Hollywood attraction ! I believe the animals here have a good live. During the day some of them stay on the farm but in the evenings they get to go back to... More

I went here today on a coach trip. The animals were in an unhappy state they did not have very much fun definitely no joy in their faces but what was more rude were the staff... They never said goodbye even though they looked at me and I said goodbye first. The staff are abrupt and sharp. They were mechanical... More
