Visited here with my wife and 2 children aged 3 and 7, very reasonable prices for entry, we had a lovely day with lots to do feeding the animals, playing on the park, tractor ride, we managed to do all the activities on offer. It was a brilliant day out for our little family!

We visited today with our three year old Granddaughter, we had a wonderful day. There is plenty to do, feeding the animals, indoor and out door play areas including trampolines, zip wire, a tractor ride and more. We had a snack at lunch time from the restaurant which was very good. All the staff were very polite, friendly and helpful. In my opinion the visit was excellent value for money.
I visited here with my 20 month old who loved every bit of the day. Excellent value for money with so many animals to see and things to do. Every member of staff was friendly and approachable and the food in the café was great. Thank you for a lovely day!

Spent about 4 hours here with my other half & 2 year old daughter…. had a great time. Place is kept clean and tidy, staff are friendly and helpful & all the animals are in good condition. We had lunch in the cafe and the food was well priced and tasty. My daughter loved it and we would definitely go back again!

Absolutely amazing day out!! Both my children were entertained the whole time we were here. There was enough to keep them happy, the staff were friendly, the animals beautiful and the grounds kept perfectly. Thank you cholderton Charlie’s for helping me to get through a portion of Half Term

First time experience today, I’m gonna go ahead and say it’s definitely the cleanest animal attraction I’ve been to. The animals all seemed content and well cared for. Everything was easily accessible and clearly sign posted, the staff were friendly… as far as the “rare breeds” status goes – I know people would expect something weird and endangered, like a green furred, 3 legged pig-goat-hybrid… and I’m pleased to say – they are merely rarer breeds of average farm animal – it is not a zoo here… if that’s what you are after – go to a zoo… but this was perfect for little people to interact with and feel safe amongst well kept animals…

We visit Cholderton Charlie’s every few months at my daughters request. We lived quite far away – in Kent – so probably not as often as she’d like! Over the last few years we’ve noticed the Farm just get (bigger and) better! Staff are friendly and all the animals are great, we especially like when we get to see all the baby animals! I would 100% recommend any one with children pay a visit, really good fun!!!
My daughter and I had a lovely day out at Cholderton Charlie’s farm. Really great value for money. Lots of animals to see and feed and a great indoor and outdoor play area. Our favourite was the tractor ride. Highly recommend for families with young children.

We went to the farm in the Sunday of the Bank Holiday and unfortunately the weather was appalling…..… But oh my did we have fun here in the Play Barn we dropped the kids off whilst the dads went and got coffee and when we returned we had the most fun ever. We were the only ones there and it was Carnage, I will leave it there !!! The farm seems to be a great day out and we only experienced a fraction due to the rain but what we did see it was great. Will be back when the weather is better !!!!
Family feeling farm with good size, not too big not too small. There are enough play area for child to enjoy them selves while walking around. Also there is indoor soft play if it’s get rainy, so it was perfect for us visiting unsure weather day out.

Went to Cholderton Charlie’s today after a friend recommended and was very impressed. 2 grandparents, 2 parents, 3 year old and a baby. We all enjoyed it. Food was well priced and vegetarian friendly. Will be recommending this to any friends visiting the area.

A local favourite of ours, it’s absolutely perfect for my toddler…who has far too much energy and does tend to turn his ears to selective listening mode more than mummy would like…so I feel confident enough to let him roam free and not have to chase him running towards a car park…it’s totally safe. It’s small enough for him to experience the whole place yet big enough to spend a whole day here. Lunch is delicious and coffee and ice-creams are worth a purchase. Lovely staff too

We have been a couple of times now with kids ranging in age. Toddlers through to 12 years old and everyone always has such a lovely day. Tractor rides, animal feeding and soft-play. We ate at the cafe and the food is lovely, service is friendly and portions are just right for the cost! We shall be back again!

We’ve been going here for years, our daughters are now 6 and 3 and always have a great time. Plenty for them to do and entrance admission costs are very reasonable. Pig racing, tractor rides, animal feeds and also a large cafe. They are also very easy to get to as well which is helpful as opposed to having to get through traffic.

Never been to a farm before, always wanted to! Lucky my husband found this place booked us in for a “Farmer for the Day” experience with farmer Dan, I really enjoyed myself for my 28th birthday.
meeting all kind of farm animals was amazing! Adopted Agnes the gorgeous Highland cow! The staff were very kind friendly and helpful food was great, I would definitely love to go back again.
Definitely would do the farm day again was the best day ever!

Lots to keep everyone entertained all day! Well laid out so it doesn’t feel too busy and there’s an indoor play and picnic area if the weather turns wet. Good value for money!

The staff around the farm were just amazing, Dan was particularly kind and helpful with my Grandson. Another Dan, was also very knowledgeable and took a long time to explain the difference between hay and straw!!!! Our favourite activity was Rabbit Fishing and watching the piglet race! Thank you, we will return!

We had a great day. There was 9 of us and we all enjoyed feeding the goats, playing on the trampolines and in the soft play barn.
We had a nice lunch to recharge us for the afternoon.

What a brilliant find Cholderton Charlie’s Farm was, very well planned and very well run. Lovely food in the cafe and the coffee was delicious (big praise indeed from me). Very good value for a family day out. 10 out of 10 from all of us.

This place is fantastic; they’ve done lots with the land, offering loads for kids and adults to enjoy for a few hours.
Very happy with our visit. Good value for money and an unspoilt little farm park with a good variety to do.
