So I’m not usually one for writing a review but felt I must after our experience today.So not the best start of our first time here today, I read the sign wrong leading up to the farm and my sat nav also told me to go the wrong way so I ended up in the farmers field down a ditch 🙈 my car was completely stuck and with two young kids in the car I was mortified!I rang the farm to see what I could do and the lady on the phone was lovely and said she would get the farmer to come and help us ASAP.Not even 5 minutes later Ernie the farmer turned up in his tractor to tow us out. Can I just say he’s an absolute gem of a man and a credit to the farm. He even drove my car at one point to try and help as it kept getting stuck down more ditches 🙈. I couldn’t apologise enough I was so embarrassed but he kept assuring me it was absolutely fine.When we finally managed to get to the farm our kids had a lovely time, they managed to help feed the lambs and all in all we had a lovely day. Already planning our next trip back! ☺️read more

I love this place and the fact its so local. well priced considering you actually get to pet and interact with the animals. I even got to feed a little lamb which made my day. The staff are really helpful. will certainly be back again.

We have been coming here for the last 3 years. It’s a brilliant and affordable day out. Some stuff does look a little tired and run down compared to some of the more expensive high spec places but kids don’t care about stuff like that and it’s only £4 entry. Staff are friendly, you get to touch and feed the animals and overall it’s a great realistic farm experience for little onesread more

First visit with 2year old grandson. He loved all the animals and play area. Yes it could do with a bit of TLC but when Grandson says at the end of the visit "I've had a good day" then all other things don't matter. A good variety of animals also which he loved. Definately go back again. Charge adults but I think childrens age should be 5 and not 2

Another fab day being spent with the animals, for anyone looking to keep the kids entertained for a few hours and not spend a fortune Swithens is definitely the place to go. From feeding the animals to the inside play gym the place has everything a stressed out parent could want. The food in the cafe is also beautiful. We even got to feed the calves which was amazing !read more

£4 entry to the farm is great kids loved the animals and feeding them the play area is tired and tatty and needs a face lift now the bad part pumpkin picking scandalous £6 each to get on a tractor and drive to a patch of grass with some pumpkins thrown on (£1 Asda ones I might add) didnt know what to expect really not worth the £6 charge.
