We arrived at the farm having booked tickets online to be greeted by a very friendly man. He explained in detail what the day would involve and how they were adhering to social distancing.
We had a fantastic day; the piglet race and the adventure playground being particular highlights. The farm is wonderful for both adults and children (we have a 1 year old and a 5 year old) and such excellent value for money. Lots of space to move around and none of the areas were too busy. Thank you for a lovely afternoon and for managing the current situation so well, it’s been a highlight of our South west adventure.

Given the challenges that Covid is supplying in plenty, I think they are doing an outstanding job. Plenty of social distancing around the farm, great signage reminders dotted about and plenty of hand washing stations. They advised that the restaurant is offering a reduced menu, I don’t know what it was like at normal capacity but wow still lots of choice! Every time we’ve been the staff have been nothing but helpful and knowledgeable. A really enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours.

We had a great visit here today, A perfect day out for a 7 year old, 5 year old and baby! Lots of hand washing facilities and clear direction where to stand when seeing the animals. Considering it was a quiet Monday there was still a timetable of activities including the great PIG RACE! The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and my sister and I are looking forward to returning.

I adore this place; me and a friend recently visited just after lockdown and i was so pleased with my visit. the staff are so knowledgeable and hap to help. it really feels like they want you there and try and improve the experience for all. They have loads on offer to see and do, running events on most days. I was particularly fond of the newly born piglets – I recommend this place for young families or families with little ones who love animals. or even those looking for a day outdoors that they will remember! 10/10

What a brilliant way to spend a day! A relaxed and beautiful place with so many animals to meet and so much to do. The challenge of COVID regulations was handled really well, with hand washing facilities readily available and we felt very looked after. The staff were passionate and knowledgeable and really couldn’t fault it. We signed up to the morning Alpaca walk, which was wonderful! We learnt loads and had a lovely walk through all the most beautiful parts of the farm meeting so many other animals along the way. Would highly recommend this experience too! We took a picnic and loads of sheltered and shady tables available.

We had a great day out as an extended family with the party ranging from age 12 weeks to 67 there was something for everyone. The animals are well looked after with daily animal activities. We loved the pig racing and duck feeding. The adventure play area is an added bonus and makes it more of a day out. My son loved the zip wire! Welcomed by lovely staff who explained all the new covid related procedures like take away food and no tractor rides. Beautiful setting too.
