Great price for a great day out. Kids really enjoyed themselves. 8 year old loved meeting and learning about Fudge the pony & Merlin the llama, 3 year old loved bottle feeding the kid goats. Tractor ride is better when the driver interacts with people and puts on more of a show but it was still fantastic. Lovely friendly staff... More

I haven't been to many better places in the world for kids. If you go on a weekday it's absolutely deserted which was excellent. There are too many things to mention and for the price you honestly can't go wrong. We'll be back :)

If you get the weather good, as we did, there is lots to do to entertain young children. Loads of outdoor play equipment/play areas, bouncing pillows, soft play and animals. There was more than enough to keep a 3 year old, 4 year old plus a 9 and 15 year old entertained! If the weather isn't so good it may... More

Very disappointed.... Tractor ride was disgraceful we past three animal's with one not actually belonging in a farm....basically just a big kids play area and wasn't worth the £40 it cost to get there and definitely wasn't worth the £35 to enter especially when there are better places in the north east to go.
