Winning the best Enterprise in the North East 2011 award from the Countryside Alliance, Down at the Farm help improve human-animal relations with hands-on petting in an idyllic countryside setting. Children of all ages can try and communicate with new-born lambs, Shetland ponies and not so furry reptiles. As a licensed zoo, the animal loving environment can offer a home to animals not native to the UK including reindeers, giant tortoises and prairie dogs amongst others.
The pass entitles intrepid explorers to enjoy a full season of animal magic and unlimited weekend, bank holiday, or local school holiday visits to pet furry little friends over the open season from March to November. Families can take a trip on the tractor to meet the cows or bounce around on the giant inflatable slides. Making the most of the changing seasons, pass holders can spring forward with chicks and fluffy lambs before basking in the summer sunshine whilst getting lost in the corn maze from August to November.
Down at the Farm has received widespread acclaim from visitors, with TripAdvisors awarding 4.5/5, and the farm receiving 5/5 reviews from Google users. It also won a regional Enterprise award at the Countryside Alliance Awards 2011. Visitors praised the staff, opportunities to interact with animals, and the range of activities on offer for people of all ages.
The animals were amazing and there are lots of opportunities to pet them. There is lots to do as well for the kids, even older kids.
