Thank you for leaving a lovely review Annie - we try our best! I am wondering if you and your nephew visited us on a school/group trip rather than a birthday party as we offer Private Indoor Fun Barn Parties but don't include the Farm animals? I do hope we see you again. More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on Tripadvisor. My staff & I work hard in providing a fun learning experience for all school/group visits during term time. We do have many animals at the farm including rare breeds and animals you may not normally expect to see on a farm like Meerkats. We introduced the Meerkats... More

Farmer James birthday parties are great for both the kids and the parents. Invites, entertainment, food and even party bags are included in the price. Farmer James himself tells the children to come for food and party bags so no arguments :) Definitely recommend.

Both my children, aged 6 and 9, were in absolute heaven from the moment we walked in. I'm usually anxious in soft play areas which are open to the public, so i instantly relaxed knowing... More
