Overview

Wellybobs is a family run farm with lots of indoor and outdoor facilities.The emphasis at wellybobs is close contact with our wonderful animals. All our animals are extremely tame and are displayed in clean light conditions so you can meet them and stroke them. We have a petting area where you can meet our little furry critters, this is always staffed to ensure our animals are never mishandeled.Outdoors we have lots more animals and lovely countryside to explore,we have an outdoor play area,which includes our ever popular Zip Wire. We also have a 9 hole mini golf course (extra charge applies). Our indoor play barn features a timber play frame, giant bouncy slide, bouncy castle and toddler soft play zone, we also have a reptile area and go cart track. Moo's cafe serves home made hot and cold food and drinks at very reasonable prices and our ice cream parlour serves delicious ice cream made on a local farm. We also have a party area and gift area.please check our website for seasonal opening times and prices.

Visited during school holidays and the kids aged 9 and 11 thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Plenty to do at reasonable costs. Good parking and close to J4 on M65. Decent cafe for parents. Safe place for kids. Recommended.

After visiting similar types of places locally, we thought we'd take our grand-daughter here, I must admit we were disappointed. It's a farm, so you cannot expect it to be pristine, however that said I thought the facilities were poor given the fact you are...More
