Great that you will return - we will take a look at the grubby signs. We do harvest much of our produce - we had our Hops Festival early in September where many bines were picked - and we will shortly have our Apple Fayre....More

This attraction is definitely one for the kids with all areas actively encouraging children to participate in order to learn and keep them occupied. Not sure adults alone would get much out of a visit. We had a light lunch and a wander finding a...More

Great place to visit with your kids, where they get the opportunity to experience farm animals and a piece of Kent farming history. Its well organised and hygienic - everytime we have been it's been raining and it has not detracted from our visit.

Visited with grandchildren who liked the animals/birds but were not impressed by poor Punch & Judy and the 'cheap and cheerful' play area. Better over the local park. Toilets dirty.More

Dogs are allowed on site we just ask that they are kept on leads, cleaned up after and do not enter the catering areas. We hope you have a great day!

I thought I would contact you regarding the totally useless response to my review which I posted three days ago in which I pointed out facilities that were not working. We visited on 5th August. You state in your response that the toilets were refurbished in time for the school holidays, the problems i highlighted existed when we visited. The taps in the hand washing facilities were not working on the day of our visit, both these items are essential health related items and should be checked at least daily, preferably several times a day. If the village hall is primarily for weddings it should be marked as such on the map you provide, with a statement that will only be available when there is not a function. As for the toilets at the entrance, those are marked on the map you provide a lot of your visitors might decide to use them when they leave on their way back to the car, so appropriate signage should be in place. In opinion the whole site has gone badly downhill since our last visit several years ago.
