Newest Review: ... told me she had been before and was excited about going back. It was better weather than some of the other reviews had by the sounds of it, but my (almost) 5 year old had a wonderful time. The entrance prices are available online, but since we spent almost 7 hours here, I did not think it was bad value for 2 adults and one child. Yes, you need some £1s handy for the extras, but that is true ... more

Headline says it all. I was expecting much more for the money. The soft play area is good but the cafe is uninspiring. The most worrying thing is that the animals don't look well cared for. Activities that were advertised were not running with no prior warning. It all felt very cheap and nasty which given the admission price and all the extra £1 rides etc it is not a cheap day out.Go to hall hill farm instead. Much cheaper, larger, better activities, more animals with greater care shown in my opinion to the visitors but most importantly the animals. I won't be going back.

Having read the predominantly negative reviews I thought I would add another perspective on this place. Am sure age is a consideration as per the other reviews, but I suggested to my daughter that we go here on Saturday when I went to visit her and she told me she had been before and was excited about going back. It was better weather than some of the other reviews had by the sounds of it, but my (almost) 5 year old had a wonderful time.

First of all the entrance prices here are ridiculously high for what it is! Especially when they charge extra for all the little 'extras' inside (animal feed, tractor ride, barell ride, etc etc), at £1 or £2 each, they soon add up if you have a couple of kids wanting to do different things! Secondly the place itself isn't even worth the price of admission, it is tiny, we walked around and saw it all in less than an hour at a very slow pace. The so called activities are less than impressive, most of them were closed or unattended (and therefore unuseable) when we went, and the ones that were left (the bouncing pillows/castle and sandpit) were rotten and ...

I could not believe how expensive it was, very little to see or do, place looks run down. Over £5 for a 2year old, dont go, there are better attractions with more to see and less to pay. Very disappointed!!

Adventure Valley With May half term in full swing, we are once again visiting places of interest to Little Miss. This time, we decided to try out one of the newest attractions in this neck of the woods- I believe it opened only last month. ADVENTURE VALLEY... The place is divided into Adventure zones, with three undercover areas (handy if it rains). The areas are: * Runaway Ranch which boasts a zip wire sheeps races and a Slide Stampede * Indoor Play Town with electric cars, playframes and a separate area for under 5s * Busy Bees barn which has a giant sand pit * The farmyard- animals to feed with ...
