Swithens Farm is currently open Tuesday to Sunday 10 till 5. Please pre-book your tickets online for the farm and playbarn.

Went to swithens farm today and had the most wonderful experience. The staff were extremely helpful throughout. Have to thank one of the tractor drivers for being extremely considerate of my disabled sister and ensuring she had the same experience as everyone else. At one point her wheel chair got stuck in the mud (my fault) and he did not hesitate at all to help push her out when he saw us struggling. From someone who works with children themselves, I commend staff on their patience with all the children. We were a fairly big group of 13 and the staff really took their time out to educate the children about the animals. They couldn’t have done enough! Also Thankyou to the lady in the small animals petting farm for giving my sister a peacock feather! This was so lovely! This place is amazing! So much to do for children of all ages. Just give yourself enough time to explore everything as there is A LOT to do! Highly recommend! Thank you so much to the team at swithens 😁 xread more

It was my first time visiting here today with my step daughter and it won't be the last! We both loved it! The animals are adorable and incredibly friendly, every single one of them, but the highlight was definitely bottle feeding the calves, a memorable experience for us both. The play areas allow children to be creative and use their imagination. Thank you for a really great experience!read more

we attended st swithens for my son to take part in the VIP farmer experience which was brilliant I would highly recommend. we spent two hours with Sam the farmer who gave us a tour of the farm, showed us all the animals and their babies, Sam was very informative about all the animals and how they are looked after. the day included collecting and washing the eggs which we got to bring home, brushed ponies and donkeys, took a pony for a walk, fed the meerkats and bottle-fed the calf's. my son was asking when we were coming back before we had even left! big thankyou to Sam for the experience, such a lovely friendly guy! will be back soonread more
