“Cheap day out tip: We’ve been here today it’s just near the airport-go up pool bank, over the traffic lights at the top, then left at the next set of lights, follow it down and it’s on the right, you’ll see a wind turbine and signs for a farm shop.
. The animals all know that you’re coming with food and come up to say hi and they’ve got new piglets there too. They also have an indoor play area for under 7’s which is very low cost, it had a few cosy coupe cars, large sandpit and a plastic climbing frame/slide set-it kept two nearly 5 year olds occupied long enough to let the Mummy’s have a coffee. Definitely worth a visit in my opinion ” Mumbler user review
