I was slightly disappointed by this children's farm. All seemed a bit out of touch. Not altogether as clean as I would like to see. Certainly there were quite a few attractions as well as animals but felt that there could have been more animals and more interaction for children

Visited while staying in Hartlepool and after reading some of the reviews was a bit sceptical but it was far better than expected. I have to say if you have not been just for seeing Santa alone you're depriving your kids of a great experience in a grotto that has clearly had huge amounts of money and effort put in... More

We visited for the see Santa experience, it was excellent value for money compared to seeing Santa in a shopping centre and queuing for ages, firstly we were taken on a tractor ride around the farm and it played Christmas songs in the trailer, we were then met by Santa's elf who took us through an excellently decorated and lit...

Booked a party in April. Too cold to be taking the kids out on the tractor ride. Nice little hut for the kids meal but no lights and absolutely freezing! Food proportions way to big for such little children but at least there was plenty! For the price I would suggest giving the parents a cup of tea or invest... More

We had a lovely day at the farm. It was very quiet on a Friday when the kids had gone back to school so we got the farm to ourselves for most of the day. The official timetable of feeds/petting was a bit unnecessary so the young guy who was there just helped us out when we wanted to do... More

Arrived at 5 past 3 to be told last admission is at 3 after we drove 30 minutes to get there. Said we would leave on time but they still wouldn't let us in!! Very rude young men smoking and acting suspicious outside (they worked there)

We also had a tractor ride which my daughter loved. Alot of the attractions were too old for my children (go karts,... More

We spent a few hours here last week and found the farm to be really good value for the money (we had a family voucher from metro radio). As well as the farm there are indoor go carts and a play area. Staff went out of their way to speak and were very friendly. A must do with young children... More

Myself and My Sister decided to take my 18 month old Daughter to Tweddle Farm yesterday, and we were not disappointed. My little girl loved the variety of animals and being able to feed the calf. For the 3 hours we were there, she wasn't bored once. The outdoor playground could do with a bit of an update, but we... More
