Lovely farm park, we really enjoyed our day out. Expected to just stay a couple of hours but our toddler was entertained by the variety of animals, several play areas and the friendly staff for most of the day. Looking forward to going again

Not a lot of variety of animals at the farm and it really didn't take long to see everything. AVOID the cafe at all costs they like to dabble in a little daylight robbery there with their prices, best off taking own food and drink!...More

Had heard such great things about this place that we decided to visit. Poor range of animals, very few information boards. There is a good selection of play areas, but cafe is not great. Would neither recommend or visit again

Response from Claireabella10cc | Reviewed this property |
Yes. The grounds are mainly gravel based so depending on the wheelchair may be tricky to push in places, but that said the grounds are mainly flat so good for prams/wheelchairs etc. It's a lovely day out when sunny!
