Great place to visit the volunteers are very knowledgeable and explain how things work back in the day. They also hold courses and also cater for having school trips.

Took our grandson there and we all enjoyed it. Surprisingly un-crowded for half term and looking a tad run down at the moment. Staff all friendly and helpful, nice cafe but very slow service, probably easiest to take a picnic!

Love it here, but admittedly not so much fun when it's really boggy. Lovely animal experiences for the children, the shire Horses are impressive 😍

Very good place to keep kids entertained the entire day. Sand pit. Fairy doors hunt. Animals feeding. Holding chicks. Milking a (fake) cow. Cafe shop. Etc.
We spent our second day in Bridgenorth. Another great place. Look for the car parking besides the river. There is a big playground for all ages and ice cream. Then you can stroll by the river and get the little train up the hill for 1.60 return. Kids under 5 go free
You can have a picnic at the castle ruins and the steam trains will entertain the kids while you have some food.

We obviously heard about this place because of the TV series, so though we'd check it out. To be fair we didn't have high expectations and those expectations were spot on. There's not a great deal to see or do really. Not sure if we just went on a quiet day (mid week in early may), so we didn't stay for that long. You can spend 2 or 3 hrs here, if you stop for some lunch in the old schoolhouse (which does some nice food, but is a little pricey... Tourist pricing rather than comparable to the area). The staff are friendly and knowledgeable (sorry, you won't see any TV stars working there).. and if you're lucky they may be feeding the lambs or ducklings/chics. We got to feed a lamb and hold some of the chics and ducklings, and in one of the cottages they had a couple in Victorian clothing making some kind of pancakes that farm workers often took with them.. they were generous with the samples too. 😀

Great place tucked away from it all in a perfect location. Free parking outside the door and a warm welcome from staff. Family ticket includes up to 3 children and at £25 was well worth the money. Kids aged 11, 10 and 4 all loved it and were allowed to just roam into enclosures and get up close with animals. Would highly recommend a visit.

A working farm, now operated by Shropshire museums. Was the background for the TV series 'Victorian Farm' . Plenty of pigs and fowls with goats and ducks. Pleasant café serves a good Moca.

Not as good on today's visit as my first time 3 years ago, but still a lovely farm to visit with children or without. Prices in the cafe are rather pricey but you can take your own picnic. The newly added sandpit was a win with our small children.

I took my two little boys here. We really liked it. They have a great cafe with a lovely play area. We fed the lambs and saw some animals. Possibly not so great for the tiny little ones, but my eldest was certainly interested.

Brilliant day out and the perfect place to take your child for their first farm experience. Lots of toilet facilities and outdoor areas for kids to explore. Many opportunities to experience farm and animals up close. Staff were fantastic and friendly and the café is brilliant. Lots of parking and lots of places for picnics.
