We absolutley loved this place. So much to do in beautiful grounds and you can really get up close with the animals too. Little ones thoroughly enjoyed it too. Will purchase season ticket next time we visit.

Update April 2021: Acton Scott is open again and we had a fabulous visit this week. Fascinating to have basket weaving demo from David and then have Tom the wonderful blacksmith make us our own horseshoe while we watched. A great time to visit now as there are baby goats, piglets and chicks and the lovely café is open, too.

Great working farm with friendly staff and engaging exhibits and animals. Lovely gift shop with a range of unusual items from local artists. We attended a super Halloween event with DJ gs and storytelling which was excellent. Going to go back on spring to see the heavy horses and maybe take a craft course.

Had a wonderful time at the farm. A lovely place with lots of animals that you can get up and close with. All of the staff were really friendly, informative and helpful.

Due to covid regs we pre booked. It was really well managed and non intrusive yet still interactive!!

Highly recommend a visit!

This is an amazing interactive experience for the family of all ages young and old to enjoy. It was educational, fun and a friendly place to spend the day

Our second visit to the farm and it was just as good as our previous visit. If your into history or even farming, Acton Scott is the place to go. Watching the heavy horses doing what they do best is a wonderful sight but your reminded that Shire horses are now more endangered than Pandas. The only downside to our visit was that many of the displays that we had seen in our previous visit weren't there and the hand milking of the cows, which I had the privilege to take part in and had enjoyed greatly last time, had been stopped some time ago. All this said and done, I would definitely recommend this place and would definitely go again.

So good to be able to spend time at Acton Scott and curses to the lockdown as they were planning to be open until December. Their maximum capacity means it never feels over busy and the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Roll on December 2

The farm was well worth visiting. Lots of interesting things to see and knowledgeable staff and volunteers to tell us about them. However, our day was marred by the attitude of the chef in the cafe, who shouted at us and was extremely rude when we politely enquired if our, fairly basic, order had been forgotten after a long wait.

A slice of rural life which contributes much to urban understanding.

The farm was lovely although limited due to Covid. All the people working /volunteering were great too. Unfortunately we had an appalling experience with the chef. On politely enquiring if we'd been forgotten 40 minutes after ordering, he was disgracefully rude, shouting that he didn't care, wasn't interested, and to go away!! A thoroughly vile man, inexcusable behaviour. I recommend taking a picnic.

Reasonably priced, fantastic, friendly staff, amazing animals and things to do. Would recommend this place to anyone with an interest in historic farming and somewhere the kids can get stuck in with the farm tasks. Good coffee and cafe too!

Loved our visit today. Always a joy to see animals and the staff were so knowledgeable and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the shire horses and talking to Tom the farrier who was absolutely fascinating.

A great afternoon out with authentic machinery, old buildings, fantastic animals (many ducks, chickens, pigs, calves). Covid measures being followed carefully, a handful of buildings not open as number of staff is reduced but didn't detract from the experience at all.

Over priced for what is provided. Our visit was post covid and I feel they should have reduced the price as there was very little for children to do.
