Don't know about the farm museum, but the cafe is great :o)

We visited Acton Scott after seeing the television program "The Victorian Farm". Had a wonderful time seeing all the areas, except the farm house, that were shown in the programme. Even hand milked a cow, something I hadn't done in over 22yrs, but hadn't lost the touch. Planning another visit in April.

Been on a 2 day ploughing course with shire horses
The instructors Simon and Jak were great very knowledgeable very easy to talk too and nothing was to much trouble and there was no such thing as a stupid question
There were 3 of us on the course Karen,Alan and myself and the ploughing was shared between the 3 of us
I would highly recommend this place even if it was just to step back in time for a day or just a few hours
Thank you all for a great time

It's very interesting and educational to see how an old style farm operated . Remember, old style means just 100 years ago ,so much has changed in the last 100 years .I would say it is well worth a visit for both adults and children .it's quite compact and easy to get around, with animals to see along with wild fowl, chickens and if you are lucky you may get to see the horses ploughing, depending on the season

What a fantastic place for people of any age lots of history with the building's which have lovely exhibitions in them or lots of different animals. Highlight for me was watching a farrier putting new shoes on one of the shire horses.The cafe in the old schoolhouse was very good value with indoor and outdoor seating. Seeing whrre a tv series was filmed in real life made it even better. Will definately come back for another visit, highly recommend

Lovely but nothing like as much activity as I expected. More a museum, or showpiece than an actual working farm.. My expectations were probably daft... I visualised a real farm...
The high point for our grandchildren was working the bellows for the farrier and :having a horseshoe to take home. Great idea. Lots of interesting info. Good lunch in the cafe.

We had an amazing day here, kids totally happy all day. Long queues for food at lunchtime, but the cakes and drinks we had were very fresh and tasty. What made it even better, there was a whole day of a felting workshop, by Tillyteadance, and my daughter and i created something beautiful to take home, . Maxine, who ran the felting, could not have been more patient and made it all seem so simple. The things she makes to sell are superb, very inspirational. Thankyou for an amazing day!!!

Amazing experience. We happen to be here on festival day so it was free, but even if we had to pay the 25 pound entry for a family it would have been worth it. It was a bit of a slow start trying to figure out what to do and where to go but once we got going the kids really loved it and we were here for almost five hours including the festival.

My favourite place to visit ! Been 4 years in a row. Staff go out of there way to make each visit a magical experience. Very hands on. There's lots to do including chick holding, lamb feeding, tours and demonstrations. No visit is the same, there's always something new going on. The cafe and staff are amazing. Would highly recommend to any ages.

This place was just amazing. It cost us £25 for a family of 4 and it was worth every penny. Both my children aged 4 and 8 were involved in the activities and the staff were amazing. I held a duck and chick and the staff encouraged both my children to have a touch so they can get used to it and build their confidence. My children fed lambs and had a go at sitting on the horses. There was plenty to see and open fields with chickens running around for the children to play. We had a cuppa in the tea room which was lovely and suitable for children. There was an outside park and benches to make the most of this nice weather. I haven't been before but I would go back!! It was simply a very good family day out! Thank you Xx

Very informative day out for children with lots of chances to get up close and hands on with the farm animals and see what farming was like in the 19th century. Well worth a trip
