Visited here twice this summer and wasn't disappointed. Food is good andof average price and has a specials board.the cafe itself is plain,simple but functional for a farm visit.only downside is the toilets are a good walk away but do have good baby changing area.we will go again when reopens in the spring.

Had a short break camping and popped in here. Lovely day, feeding the animals, had a close encounter with a snake, Rocky, very cute! Set out really well and the animals well cared for and cute! The guy with the snake was very friendly and informative.

With activities timetabled at half hour intervals and plenty to see in between we easily filled the full day.

We celebrated my daughters 6th birthday with a pony party in September and everyone loved it- even the adults! The weather was on our side and the children were really taken care of by the pony leaders. We started going a few years ago and I have to admit, it was quite dreary. We now go regulary and it's great... More
