Lovely that children can have a hands-on experience with animals as so many don’t have the chance.
A really well thought out day for all the family and such a good idea having something on every half hour.

Best farm yet! Wide range of happy looking animals we could hand feed, great variety of play equipment, fun mini train and tractor rides. Plenty for a whole day of fun, we didn't even make it into the indoor play area.

So much fun for all the family
Sep 2021 • Family
We went with our 2 young daughters 18months and nearly 3. We all had the best day. We have been to many many different days out over the summer and this was the best. So much to do, the interactions with the animals were amazing. All the animals seemed very well cared for and in good health. Would def visit again! And we live in Wales so its a drive!

Visited today with 3 year old and 1 year old. As a family we all enjoyed. Loved the different experiences throughout the morning including the bottle feeding, pig racing, goat walking and being able to cuddle some animals.
The staff were amazing really friendly and helpful.
Really lovely place wish we lived closer would definitely return if in the area again.
Only downside we felt a bit rushed trying to do everything in 4 hours, we could have spent much longer there.

Thank you for your fab review! We are lucky in that our site is easy to move around for our less mobile visitors, lots of picnic benches along the way for rest stops (chance to admire that view as well!) We would love to see you back again soon!

Absolutely Brilliant
Sep 2021 • Family
We have just visited Pennywells for the first time with our two year old and had an absolutely wonderful visit. From the get go, staff are friendly and seem to love what they do. Animals seem happy and healthy with good enclosures and the amount of activities that allow children to really interact with farm life is just wonderful. We whole heartedly enjoyed our trip and have made some fabulous memories here. We would definitely return as its just perfectly aimed at toddlers and school age children. We particularly enjoyed the piglet cuddles and pig racing which were total highlights of our visit.
My only small niggle was the main cafe/restaurant was closed and the smaller snack shack didn't cater for our coeliac daughter but what I will say is the lady there went out of her way to make her up a small gluten free cheese salad which she gave us free of charge. We were really touched by her going above and beyond to find our daughter something to eat. Thank you so much. 💓
Highly highly recommend.

Thank you for your absolutely brilliant review! We are so glad you all had a great time with us. Liz who made your daughters sandwich is lovely and was happy to help. Although we are running on a restricted menu option, we will always try our best to go that extra mile wherever needed. Hope to see you back for your second visit soon!

Fantastic family fun
Sep 2021 • Family
4 hours flies by with a different activity scheduled every 30 minutes. The settings is beautiful and there's nothing artificial about the farm - just good, honest, fun. It's as relaxing for the adults as it is fun for the kids. The staff are very friendly and everything is very well managed. Even the souvenir shop seems pretty good value - it doesn't feel like you're being ripped off. It's a lovely day out.

The best family day trip
Sep 2021 • Family
Simply the best morning for families of young children.
The fact that we visited just after the summer holidays also helped as our last visit although still excellent was far less crowded and frantic!

Thank you for your simply the best review! With the children now back at school, visiting during the week means you get longer pig and pet cuddles! Look forward to seeing you again soon.
