Reasons for trip

We visited this farm park on Easter Saturday when it was very busy but it was still easy to do everything the children wanted. I thought it was rather expensive when we went in – £54 for 2 adults and 2 children (8 and 2). I had tried to find vouchers on the internet before we came but was unsuccessful which was probably fortunate as there were notices up saying internet vouchers were not accepted. We did, however, spend the whole day there so had changed my mind about the value by the time we left.

There were both large indoor and outdoor play areas as well as plenty of small animals to touch and hold as well as baby lambs and piglets. We had bought a 50p packet of food for the animals but think they were not very hungry – lots of children feeding them – however the pigs finished them! Food for humans was a bit disappointing – all in the burger and chips or jacket potato family and a long queue at lunchtime.

The tractor ride was loved by the 2 year old but the 8 year old – and the adults – were not impressed by the sing-along aspect. The 2 year old also enjoyed the fairground roundabout. The shows we attended were OK but not really to our taste – a bit too much forced jollity with the exception of the falconry display. The trampolines and the Egg Dodge were extremely popular with the 8 year old.

Overall a very good mixture of things to do for children up to about 9 though rather more of a general entertainment day than a farm visit. There was a shop (no need to pay entrance fee) with food etc which was worth a visit if you are there but otherwise a place for a family day out with young children.
