Godstone Farm (Surrey) Reviews
Newest Review: ... indoor soft play area, with the usual climbing frames, slides and ride on toys, plus good baby changing facilities. If you are lucky enough to get a rare sunny day, theres an expansive outdoor play area where little ones can tire themselves out in the sandpit, or on the swings and climbing frames amongst other things. The play area is large and is accompanied by a picnic area so parents can relax, but still keep an eye on their little treasures. At the moment the farm is still in the recovery stages and they are being meticulous about health and safety, not that they weren't always. The farm used to allow children to handle a lot of t... more

Godstone Farm was an extremely popular attraction in my area, until the well publicised, but often overly dramatised outbreak of E-Coli where twelve children were unfortunately taken ill. That happened at the end of the summer, and understandably the farm closed to comply with investigations, which are ongoing. However the farm has now re-opened and I've frequented it on a few occasions since. First things first, this is still a brilliant attraction for the whole family. There are rabbits, ducks, geese, turkeys, pigs, sheep and goats to see. The animals are slowly being re-introduced, so hopefully there will soon be even more here. There are ...

Godstone farm is a great place for a day out with the family, but....... don't make the mistake of thinking that it's easily accessible by public transport! The nearest train station is Caterham which is nearly three miles away and the local buses to Godstone are few and far between. If you're unlucky you may have to wait 90 minutes. No joke when you have children with you!!!

Godstone is so refreshing to visit when you're used to farm parks where you're bossed around, told not to touch anything, and generally nannied. Godstone is much more relaxed, and the children can do what they really want to do, which is touch things, get dirty, and run around without getting under people's feet. The children *adore* going in the rabbit and guinea pig pens to give the animals a cuddle, and stroking the larger animals through fences. Lots of handwashing facilities too. The outdoor play areas are brilliant, with lots of variety - eg old tractors alongside new adventure play equipment. I have never seen such a huge play area. Natural slopes ...

Why? Because Godstone Farm should be kept a secret and that way you lot can go to Thorpe Park, Chessington and Legoland queing for hours for rides that take 3 minutes! Situated between the M25 and the A22, suprisingly just outside Godstone village in Surrey. First the most amazing thing about this place is the price, children are £3.95 but with each child an adult gets in free! So the average family can get in for less than the price of an adult ticket to Legoland! Huge parking area - must be for at least 500 cars. So what is it then ? Cows, sheep, lambs, rabbits? Yes but I'm saving the best bit for last.... Once in we usually head for the ... Read the complete review
