laid out very well. Animals in one area and rides in another. Not overly priced (although the gift shop is a bit expensive) Staff were friendly and polite. All in all a good day out.

I'm not a massive farm fan but I do like to see animals in fields in the countryside, rather than next to a major motorway in relatively small enclosures. This is much more of a "city" farm and there aren't an extensive amount of animals...More

Some animals have the worst enclosures i have ever seen. Staff are rude and dont care just young teenagers who have no real idea about animals. Its just a job to them. The slides and play areas are good but thats literally it.

My son is 11 months old. Is the soft play area suitable for very small children? He is not yet crawling

Regrettably, I don't recall a sectioned area for toddlers. It can get quite hectic as there isn't an age restriction and it's 'unsupervised'.

Anyone have any ideas on the menu in the cafe? We're going but there's nothing on the website so I'm not sure if it's better to take something with usome?

The cafe is situated within the soft play area and appears to serve "fast food" such as burgers. I've always taken a packed lunch.
