Brilliant for people with small children. Can stay here all day! My daughter is 3 and cried because we had to leave! You can cuddle guinea-pigs, brush horses, ride a horse £2.50, baby goats, rabbits, gerbils, degus, fish, alpacas all sorts. Then a huge soft play area. There's a cafe, all so tableS and chairs for a picnic. Can stay... More

i love this place and visit often with my grandchildren and a preschool. the prices are great for us - use the deals not a one off fee. there is plenty for the children to do at a relaxed pace- not too overwhelming. always found the staff most helpful and accommodating.

Visited here after going to the Swannery. Great fun and very enjoyable. Lots of interesting things to see, especially the birds of prey. Worth a visit

1. Very expensive entry fee. 2. Poor quality and very expensive food - processed white bread, tinned soup, no fresh fruit , no squash for children. 3. Disappointing selection of animals. 4. An extra charge of £2.50 for a very short ponytail ride! 5. Poor play equipment for young children in the soft play area. 6. Despite the encouraging website... More

Lots of things for children to do better for younger children. Horse riding feeding sheep goats. Goat racing. Picnic areas outside. Inside play area. Cafe and shop. Car park pay all day or half day.

Visited farm after the Swannary. Lots for kids of all ages to do and enjoy. Well worth a visit especially if you take advantage of passport ticket which gives access to all of Abbotsbury attractions.

Took our 3 year old grandson. Found it quite expensive for what was available. Food was very expensive too.

We took our two youngest grandchildren here for a treat. Not too expensive to get in, but you have to pay extra for the pony ride which only lasts for around five minutes. Feel this could be included in the price of admission.

I took my youngest here for a Sunday day out and paid £20 for entry. We stayed less than an hour. Once you have seen the Guinea pigs and a few animals in their pens there is very little else to do! I certainly wouldn't recommend for anyone over the age of 5. Overall an expensive hour (£3.50 for parking... More
