"good but expensive day out…"
Willow farm is a great place to come to, even when it's raining. We even bought membership. However, beware holding birthday parties there. There's a surly woman in charge of bookings who didn't see fit to apologise for us being overcharged even though the mistake was theirs. Also, we spent first 30 mins of a two and half hour session waiting in the restaurant for our host to get everything together. Though the kids enjoyed themselves, the party room was dark and dingy and the supposed hot food served stone cold. All in all, I would have expected more for an expensive party. Won't be booking again.Read moreLess
"Disappointed at lack of contact with animals…"
Have visited Willows Farm only once when DD was about 15 months old, so possible my experience coloured by her being so young. I found entrance pricey and was disappointed that we didn't have opportunity to feed/pet more animals and the animal pens weren't designed with children in mind - I seemed to be lifting DD up so she could see all the time.
I couldn't really see the point of all the animal shows - seemed to be more for the adults than kids.
That said, she enjoyed the playground, sandpit and trampolines but that wasn't really what I was looking for from a farm - I thought that it would be more kinda rustic and animal focused like the farms I enjoyed as a child.Read moreLess
