Great place to explore and get some up close experiences with farm animals. Nicely kept, but not so tidy as to feel fake - no intrusive signage that distract you from the feeling you're on an old farm.
The cafe in an old school house on the farm is really good and serves food from the farm.

Wonderful place to visit. The staff are very knowledgeable and are more than happy to take the time to talk to you, you can watch butter being made and then buy some it's delicious, you can help Simon groom his beautiful horses (he needs a young 4 year old shire to learn along side the older horse ) and you can see him working with the horses, and then have a well earned lunch or just a drink in the school house cafe, definitely worth the five stars.

Its ok, not enough to look at to hold you there for any length of time, found entry cost a little expensive , but the restaurant is well worth a visit

Acton Scott stared in the itv series A Victorian Farm which first brought it to our attention.
A rare look at what life was like for farming families up to the 1950s. With a latge collection of animals and farm implements We enjoyed a great day out here the grandchildren loved the animals grandad had a trip down memory lane to my childhood. Shire horses are my favourites.
Signs could be better from A49 and it took us a while to find.
Pack a pair of wellies as remember this is a working farm and enjoy a grand day out.

Loved it. Had a great few hours. Didn't see much of the farm actually working. Watched the butter being made and brought a packet. It is beautiful, tastes lovely. Facilities were brilliant- Toilets everywhere. Not as many animals that I had hoped for. The baby pigs were cute. The horses, chickens were great. Met the bad tempered geese that was out and about going for people. Men mainly did'nt hurt anyone but funny. The people on site were very good to talk too and interesting.
Well worth a visit. I will go again.. The children really enjoy seeing the farm equiptment too. lovely areas for picnics.

We've been to Acton Scott twice this summer! We had friends up to stay and thought we'd have a nice day out and Acton Scott had everything for the kids, especially with the good weather. Fantastic place.

We took our children to Acton Scott last summer (seems like a million years ago now!) and we all had a wonderful time. Lots to see and do and learn, and very friendly, knowledgeable staff.

My family had a great time at Acton Scott last year. We'll definitely be going again this Summer. Lots of fun, fresh air and OK we all learnt something too! But the fun for the kids is the main thing. Highly recommended.
A fantastic day out for all the family. Very educational and the kids love it.

We took our grandchildren to Acton Scott this summer and everyone had a terrific time - children and adults! Acton Scott makes for a very interesting, fun day and it was lovely to be outdoors and making the most of the few days of sunshine we had.

We had a lovely summer's day at Acton Scott with my NCT group. It was a great place to take the children; lots of fresh air, running about and seeing farm animals at work. The adults found it interesting too! Reasonable admission prices, lovely food and refreshments... a fun packed day for everyone.
A fantastic fun day out! I was a city boy for years, so I learnt a few things at Acton Scott too! Fresh air, friendly knowledgeable staff, refreshments.... It was a bit like Blists Hill in Telford, except with animals! Me and my nieces and nephews loved it. Great stuff.
