This was outstanding. Our guide, Rob, was so interesting and made sure that people at the back or slow to catch up heard everything.

Wonderful day. My grandchildren had a great day, seeing all the farm animals, stroking lambs and holding chicks and ducklings. Staff were really helpful. We were there for 6 hours and the children were occupied and inspired the whole time.

An excellent morning spent here. The staff are brilliant and seem happy to answer any questions. There is plenty to do for a morning/afternoon with scope for more as restrictions ease. The 'little farmers' walk around in the early part of the day was brilliant for children of all ages.

What a hidden gem this place is. Having been to many of the differing tourist attractions in and around the county, this has to be pound-for-pound right up there with the very best of them. It's just a lovely place with a team of staff members who do it proud. They are all so friendly and helpful and that all helps with the real feel-good factor you get just walking around. Set against a film-set backdrop of rolling hills and countryside, I can't think of too many lovelier places to be. Extremely reasonably priced. Fantastic - will definitely return.

Used 2 take my kids there every easter when they growing up. So many lovely memories and now it was time to take my 2 grandsons. My kids and i relived our happy memories. Still the same. Great place if u want to see just how hard it was farming in years gone by. The staff so informative like years ago and nice 2 recognise some faces from the past. I would recommend it 2 anyone who interested in history of farming and the great outdoors. And great place 2 take kids

Absolutely great day out. Do not miss it. We arrived at 11am and left at 4pm. Lots to see. Guides are there to tell you more and for you to ask questions.
The animals are out working at different times, for example the Shire horses work in the morning and they get to go in and rest for a few hours. The forge was working all day. Tom was a super guy. He told us all about being a farrier and horse shoes are like human shoes, specific to each foot, who knew!
The animals are brilliant and well cared for. Piglets were born last week and we were able to get quite close. Goats were my favourite.
You will want walking shoes or boots. Wellies for kids. Take a picnic but although the school house cafe was closed, an improvised barbecue was available in the covered picnic area. Allergies are catered for.
My husband uses a wheelchair so we hired their Tramper for the day. Book in advance for this. No charge just a donation.

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
