We came here for an afternoon, it's nice enough and the staff were lovely, but we just found it was all over a bit quick and there wasn't as much interaction with the animals like you'd find in other farm parks, for example the only food you could buy was for the micro pigs. Other farm parks offer more for... More

We stopped here with our 2 year old, who absolutely loved it. The animals looked well kept and happy, he enjoyed being with the guinea pigs and stroking the lambs. The cafe was nice and clean, with friendly staff but the best bit has to be the incredible indoor play area - it is absolutely fantastic. I think our son... More

Had a fantastic day out at the farm. Both myself and hubby both noted how well kept the farm is and all the children's play equipment. The farm is small but there are a wide range of activities - lamb feeding, pony rides (extra £2.50), horse grooming, guinea pig handling and a variety of other animals that you can view.... More

Lovely farm for the children, very hands on with the animals. Loved the lamb race and bottle feeding. Washing hands facilities placed all around. Pony rides available. Staff were all very friendly and easy to talk too. Toilets were on the outside of the farm but this is due to its unique build around lovely buildings.

Ideal for little ones, for a couple of hours if you look at all the animals and play on the extra bits, like the soft area. Bit overpriced, but we used Tesco club card vouchers to get a Passport, which allows you to see all 3 attractions, Swannary, Subtropical gardens and the Children farm. It's 18 pounds each normally. Worth... More

We visited with our 2 year old and spent about two and a half hours here. The farm is small but there are other activities to keep little ones amused. Our little one loved the ride on tractors and feeding the guinea pigs. We feed the lambs but it was a bit small to appreciate it. Although our little one... More

Overpriced. Lovely place, but £31 for two adults and a 5 yr old??? And £3-50 to park added insult too! Cafe: £7-50 for a dish finger sandwich in shop bought bread with a few hollow chips. Cake £3:95 a slice?? Outraged. Soft play spoilt by teenage boys hurtling around upsetting little kids, no staff to tell. Not coming back.

We had a Passport ticket for all three Abbotsbury attractions, bought with Tesco Days Out vouchers so it was great value for money. At the full entrance price I would have been disappointed. We loved feeding the lambs and stroking a guinea pig, although it was really quiet when we visited, I think I would have felt sorry for the... More

Found the farm easily enough, in a very pretty and picturesque village and surrounding area. As we arrived in the afternoon, parking was only £2.00 (after 2pm) instead of the full £3.50. It’s a bit insulting to charge for parking separately to entrance. A short walk downhill to the farm, giving an impressive view of the old tithe barn. There... More

We were lucky to have won free entry as a raffle prize kindly donated by Abbotsbury. We took our 9 year old daughter and her friend. They had an amazing time and easily spent 6 hours there. We found it more sedate than Farmer Palmers and far more picturesque. They enjoyed bottle feeding the lambs, cuddling the guinea pigs whilst... More
