Good Easter attraction

Good attraction for the Easter period. With lots for kids to do at a reasonable price. Need to sort toilets out though as too few and very run down and dirty even early in the day

Visited here with my wife and 7-month old son. The other comments about it being a bit run down don't appreciate the charm of the place. Sure, it's a little rustic but it's a working farm and they invite you into their barns which are transformed into a great fun time for all ages. Nice kids play areas and hay-bale... More

This centre is in a beautiful setting with huge potential that isn't quite realised. The entrance is quite difficult to find once parked up in a heavily poo strewn area. Some animals were in a field and a pond had ducks & swans although this was outside and not part of the 'attraction'. Two random cages outside with Kookaburras and... More

On paper, this looked like the perfect place to take our children over Easter. However, we are completely in agreement with the other Easter reviews below. It seems they'll continue letting more & more people in (and therefore taking their money) until the barn is at bursting point! We heard many people saying it wasn't what they had expected. It...

I cannot say anything good about this place. After standing in a queue for 45 minutes with no safety from the traffic driving within inches of children we finally entered what can only be described as a stinking barn full of dated and dirty kids toys, some half hearted climbing frames and some animals in pens. I do not believe... More

We visited for the first time at Christmas and it was amazing. For our second visit we attended the Easter Fun on the Farm event. We were greeted by 2 escaped llamas. Everything was in one barn, various play areas for all ages and animals. We arrived at 10am when it first opened and I'm glad we did because the... More

Easter fun week. Had to que for 45minutes to get in, couldn't get close to the animals as they were in small pens and there was far too many people in there. The play area is good but in too small area and again far too many people in there. The bouncy castle was unsupervised and I witnessed 3 children... More

I don't understand the previous reviews about grumpy staff. The staff that met us were happy, polite and extremely welcoming. It was great that everything was undercover because the weather was not great on our afternoon there. Meeting Santa was fantastic for my grandson, he was tremendous and the present that my grandson received was not a cheap toy -... More

Visited just before Christmas with my teenage son, his girlfriend, young adult daughter and her boyfriend just to see the reindeers. Firstly you cannot just do this and have to pay a full fee of £13 each! Child rate is £17, which includes Santa visit. This venue is only suitable for children under 5 where parents think a good day... More
