Always a great place to visit to entertain my three year old. She has great fun feeding the ducks, baby goats and calves. The outside play area and trampolines are an added bonus. Plenty of parking & very easy to get to.

What a hidden gem! Longdown is one of the best activity farms in the South. We had an amazing time as the family. The kids thoroughly enjoyed feeding the animals. The staff were very patient and ensured all the children had a go at feeding the calves. There is lots of picnic area and the kids could grab a snack... More

We went as a trip as a nursery with children from 1 years to 4 years old. Overall the day was amazing although there was a few bumps in the road. The first one was when it came to feeding the goats we got turned away as the children were too young, when we complained we were told that they... More

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit, I can assure you that there is no age limit on who feeds the animals , however we certainly would not like to give a bottle of milk to a very small child who is not supervised, just imagine how much milk that child would guzzle down in a few...

I visited on my 30th birthday with my four year old son and family. I was unable to print my ticket but all the staff were fantastic, Bryan emailed to sort it and the ladies on the front desk were lovely. Very welcoming and explained about the events on throughout the day in great detail. The sun was shining and... More

Wonderful for all ages, being able to feed and handle the baby animals made my daughter's day. We stayed for around 4 hours, I would say that was ample time to do all the scheduled activities and wonder around at own pace.

We have been here a few times before and thought it would be nice to write a review to help people what to expect. The park opens at 10am with the first feeding starting at 10.30! The farm closes at 5pm. Car parking is free opposite and plenty of parking. We have two young children 3 and 1 and they... More

We went with two children aged 4 and 6. You could walk round the farm in an hour so we spent alot of time standing around or sat in the park. Cafe overpriced but kids enjoyed their morning out.

We visited on Bank Holiday Monday with our son and grand daughter (3), and had a wonderful day. All the staff were knowledgeable and friendly and the set up was great for a actively curious 3 year old. Hand feeding the calves and the kid goats was a brilliant experience for our grand daughter. There was so much to do... More

We went as a couple and had a great day seeing all the animals especially an escaping goat we named Houdini. Wheelchair accessible and fun place to spend a few hours. Also has a lovely farm shop with lots of tasty goodies.

We've been visiting the farm for several years now with various grandchildren, our latest being last Saturday (April 29th). Every time we go, it's improved from the previous visit and this one was no exception. Going in the afternoon suited us on this occasion and, despite it being yet another bank holiday weekend, there were plenty of spaces in the... More
