Wonderful family trip out to feed the animals. Grab a bucket of animal food for £1.50 and away you go! You're guaranteed a very warm welcome from the goats, cows and sheep - and there are many other animals to see and feed. Our family challenge is to try to feed the cows without getting licked (unfortunately 14 year old... More

Visited for late breakfast/early lunch. Fab range on offer all freshly cooked to order. The cakes looked gorgeous too. Mini breakfast was just right and the cheese and onion panini, homemade chips, coleslaw and salad was amazing. Excellent value for money too.

I know it's still kinda winter and animals should be inside but the cages are filthy some of the animals are cramped 3 peacocks in a small cage!! The kids chucking food and being left to go stale cause the animals are full it's very unsteady under foot. Healthy and safety nightmare.

We've been visiting regularly for over 10 years and it's never disappointing. Just enough animals and lovely for the kids to feed them. Free entry and only £1 for a bucket of animal food is incredible value. James' cafe is also excellent with home made food and wonderful "ultimate hot chocolate" and home made desserts. Well recommended.

Absolutely love this place. Been coming here for years and read some not so nice reviews so thought it was time I had my say! The staff in the farm shop are always happy and welcoming, what more can you want for a free day out. The kids love it and always leave happy. The coffee shop is always great.... More
