We were looking forward to going as there seemed a lot to do. It was very easy to find Willows Farm by car. Clear signs to follow. We parked on a grass field which made pushing the pushchair a little difficult but it was not a big deal. Entrance easy to find no problems at all paid very quickly without any issues. It was a great family environment.  My 2 yr. old was very excited to see the animals which are close to the entrance and you can see the whole of the complex from there. Very big open spaces.  Great for children. Attractions at the farm were wonderful. We fed the animals which both children enjoyed.  We dug for gold and got medals which my son still carries round now. The rides there were suitable for both the children.  My 1 yr. old loved the car/space ship ride and so we had to go on that a few times. The bouncy castles were also a big hit.  The tractor ride was everyone’s favourite though. Our children had a wonderful day. As a family we enjoy coming along to these sort of places.  It is suitable for adults and children so everyone can have a good time. The facilities were great. Plenty of food for a picky toddler to eat and baby foods as well. Yummy cakes and treats for everyone too.  The changing facilities were very clean and spacious, so this was great too.  There is a lovely shop at the end where we bought some local produce and treats for the children.  Nice wooden toys too. My Son (2 yr.) had a great time running round and pointing out where the many pumpkins were. We certainly all felt safe as it is a very open space I could clearly see everything that was going on around me and keep an eye on the children easily. Superb value for money as there is a lot to do so no one will be bored.  In fact we didn’t even get round to everything. We will definitely go back and plan to go for the Christmas festivities. I have already recommended Willows Farm. We had a lovely day. Thanks for the tickets. Katie Winters – Ashley &Imogen 2 & 1 years

It didn’t seem very big for the entrance cost and wouldn’t fill a whole day. It was very easy to drive to especially as it was very local to where I live. There is a lot of parking but the car parks get extremely busy during holidays and they are not made up which can make it difficult with a buggy. Entrance is very easy to access and they have lots of kiosks to pay at, easing queues at busy times. It is definitely aimed att he slightly older children and was easy to get around with the buggy as well as two toddlers; everything was at their height so they could see a lot. You pay a lot for some animals and some playground equipment. They also have an indoor play area but that was very busy and the toddlers felt overwhelmed by all the larger children running around. They had a fantastic day looking at the animals and playing in the playgrounds. There was plenty for them to do and see.  We enjoy getting out and about and it was easy to do with 2 toddlers and pram. The cafe is quite expensive but there are plenty of places to eat a picnic outside and the toilets were very clean. There was a display of pumpkins and scarecrows as you entered and then the pumpkin patch where the children chose a pumpkin they could carve there or take home which was lovely. We all felt very safe with such small children at Willows Farm. It isexpensive for what is there but the children really enjoyed it .Our children really enjoyed their visit and close to us so will look to go back again in the future.  As a special treat I would recommend it but try to avoid the school holidays as it was extremely busy. The girls had a fantastic time, and really enjoyed themselves. We had a good time there but would be better as a morning or afternoon activity/visit as there wasn’t enough to amuse the 2 children for a whole day.

The children were so excited a Pumpkin Festival we could not wait. Very easy to find and clear signs. Parking is OK just was a bit busy during half term week, but we parked safely enough. Entrance easy to find and very easy to pay and pass through with ease. We had never visited before as live jus toutside the area but what a great family day out it was. Our children loved all the attractions, the Pumpkin Carving, the animals, the rides and so much more. Attractions were really good and ideal for our children they had a ball. The farm is laid out well and very safe, we all felt safe with both children. The rides were great fun too. Our children had a glorious day and they were absolutely exhausted by the time we arrived back home. The facilities were excellent, food good, and the toilets were clean and well maintained. We also purchased some local produce to bring back home too and this was a hit with everyone. Taking into account all the facilities on offer and the Pumpkin carving plus so many other attractions this is very good value for money. So much to do for children and interesting for adults as you can join in the fun. We had not been to Willows farm before, but we will be checking future attractions online and will be going back. We had a wonderful day and the children wer eexhausted by the time we arrived home. They had a wonderful day and have been talking about this for ages. Thank you so much a new place for us to visit in the future. Would recommend without hesitation and will be bringing some friends with their children for the Christmas events. Thank you.
