Visited with my grandchild... paid our admission. Saw 3 llamas and 5 roosters. No sheep, no cows, no pigs, no goats, no small animals - section closed re covid, no playground- closed re Covid. Really poor. Only place that was busy was the cafe as everything else was empty or closed. Complete waste of time. Go to “none go by” near Leeds airport instead. Cheaper, far better with lots of animals which the children can feed with bags of food given with entry price. Staff here very unhelpful.... not interested. With great regret I recommend avoid.

We've been going to the farm for years as a couple, especially in the spring to see the piglets 😍, so I was very excited to take our little boy down when it opened after lockdown. I went down with a friend and our babies last week, one in a baby carrier and the other in a pram. He's only a baby so didn't really have a clue what was going on but was pretty transfixed with the alpacas! For a little farm there are lots of animals to see, we spotted pigs, cows, sheep, goats, ducks, chickens and the aforementioned alpacas. We've definitely seen rabbits and Guinea pigs before too. There's also a huge market garden and lots of plants and a pond to enjoy. There's a lovely farm shop (currently closed I think due to Covid) and a little cafe. We had a bite to eat at the cafe and a coffee each which was very welcome. It's such good value - £2 for adults and 50p for children over 2, under 2s are free. We got a family membership which is £25 for the year as we only live up the road and will go loads I'm sure. I have to say I'm really surprised by the negative reviews comparing it to somewhere like Cannon Hall in terms of activities and scale. If you're looking for outdoor playgrounds, tractor rides etc. then it might not be for you and you might be better visiting a commercial enterprise like Cannon Hall. This isn't a diss of Cannon Hall at all, I've been before with friends and their children and it's great, it's also £8 per adult and £8 per child over 2, so £34 per family plus parking charges. Meanwood would be £5 for a family and is a charity so it's a very different proposition. If you're looking for a little stroll, some plants and animals to entertain little ones for a couple of hours and a nice cuppa at the end then it's a fantastic place to visit and excellent value for money.

Great for a couple of casual hours, we hand fed the alpacas, sheep and goats with packets of food pellets bought in the shop and then had lunch in the cafe, a little gem of a place. We had bacon and egg butties and delicious cakes that actually tasted homemade. Blissfully unsophisticated it almost felt we'd been transported back to the 1960s.

Really disappointed. Although I appreciate it is winter when we visited we saw less than a dozen sheep, one rabbit, three alpacas and three guinea pigs! Very little to do and after paying was only there for 25 mins. Don’t expect too much, it is a great working farm but there are better ones for little people in the area

Very sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your visit. We are slowly trying to invest in better signage to show visitors where our animals are (they often move around the farm so that we can rest fields and allow grass to grow) and to put on more activities such as holiday trails and activity days alongside the forest school which runs from the farm (for parents and children). As we are a charity - providing horticulture and animal care opportunities to young people and adults with learning disabilities - we have limited resources but we are trying to improve the site so that visitors have a better experience. One again thank you for your feedback.

I am not 100% sure what I paid to get in for, I saw a few sheep and two cows and some guinea pigs. I mean it only cost me £5 for 4 of us so it's not going to break the bank but I think using the word farm is abit of a stretch! We spent about an hour here and saw everything! I wasn't expecting much but maybe a little more than I got! There are definitely better places to visit around Leeds. We won't be returning!
