A wonderful day, plenty to do, great activities. New adventure play area. Expanded a lot since our last visit. Great ice cream and other food options. Picnic benches too. Lovely space for children to meet and feed the animals. Plenty of outdoor space for children to run out and have fun! Good value for money.

Took my youngest sister (7) here today. What a fabulous place, very well kept. Beautiful animals all well kept and cared for. Had a lovely day out would highly recommend! Will definitely be returning!

Went with family for a day trip. Entry cost £10 pp. It was worth it as kids really enjoyed. Plenty of farm animals to look at, including a cow safari. Also got to feed and pet the animals. Lots of play activities as well.
The icecream was delicious and bought fresh milk to take with.
My first visit with a friend and her little girl yesterday. The farm is so lovely and it’s great that you can feed the animals (an extra charge of £1.25 per bag).

Those complaining about the entry fee obviously do not understand the costs involved in keeping animals and running a business. The animals need feeding, veterinary treatment, staff wages, general running costs and like all of us, the cost of living has increased, therefor businesses need to increase their fees to reflect that. It really isn’t difficult to understand!

The entry fee includes access to all activities inside, of which there are more than enough such as a tractor ride, maze, peddle go-carts, animal meet and greets and much more. I know a lot of places where you pay to enter, then have to pay extra to take part in activities.

The cafe is superb; the food choices were great and just enough for a small café like this.

Lastly the ice cream! Absolutely delicious and I’ve been waiting to try it for a long time; was not disappointed. I am very much an ice cream lover and it’s not often you find one like Bluebells.

I will definitely be returning as there is so much to see and do. A great family day out.

The farm has changed so much over the years. Now you can spend all day there without realising. The plant potting was my favourite activity, while our children liked the tractor safari best.

Amazing family day out for a really good price.
Enough going on to keep the kids (or all ages) entertained all day.
The cafe served great snacks and ice cream..and more importantly cold drinks (we went in 32° heat)
My only suggestion would be to add some recycling bins as we had a lot of cans/recycling options that just went in the bin..but that was a minor part of an amazing day out

Christmas experience was simply the best so well thought out. From the singalong to helping the elves the hit chocolate stop and story time with Santa. How the gifts came down the chimney was a great idea we all really enjoyed it. Fantastic

My kids really enjoy the farm, we've been coming here for years. The improvements made are very good and they seem to be building a whole new play area for bigger kids (October 21) which is a very welcome addition.

My main gripe is that there's no accommodations for food intolerances in the cafe. How hard is it to buy a tub of dairy free spread so my 4 year old daughter doesn't have to eat a dry ham cob, really? I know you're a dairy farm, but it's hardly her fault that she's intolerant to dairy. It's 2021, we shouldn't be having to beg for inclusion still.

Halloween event was very good, and we got fantastic pumpkins. The shows are always fantastic for kids, and well worth the entry fee.
