Wheelock Hall Petting Farm is a beautiful space that caters for the young and young at heart!

Over in the farm you can see and feed pigs, sheep, goats, calves, donkeys, chickens and ducks. Explore the colours and smells of the garden centre, before letting the children loose in the large outdoor play area, which has its own assault course, swings, go-karts and ride-on tractors for the little ones.

In the tearoom enjoy freshly baked cakes, scones and pastries and children will particularly like chips made from homegrown potatoes! Finally a visit to the farm shop will allow you to stock up on local produce, including jams, preserves, home-made cakes and local cheeses. There’s also an exciting choice of farm toys and popular seasonal items, such as Christmas trees and holly wreaths!

I bought six eggs priced at £1.55 and they tried to charge me £2.55. When I corrected them they were not apologetic in the slightest, this is not the first time it has happened..very rude staff.

Absolutely brilliant,

I visited on Bank Holiday Monday for the first time and I was really impressed. There aren't many animals (pigs, goats, sheep, cows, donkeys, small horses and chickens and ducks) but they are very engaging so happily come and eat from your hands and let you stroke them. The animals are lovely. Then the play areas are fantastic, there are 3 different areas adventure playground style, with jumps, zip line, swings, slides for them to run and play. There are also small tractors and tracks to ride around on. All in all hours of fun for all of the kids and the price is only £5 per child, no fee for adults. Well worth it.

Great day out

We've been here a few times and it just keeps improving. They now have an indoor play area as well as the outside play area. There's loads more too, animals, cafe and a lovely farm shop. Be warned, it can be packed during school holidays.

Amazing place

Would just like to say how lovely this place is, visited today with my two daughters (8 & 5) and we thoroughly enjoyed it, everything is kept so clean and looked after, the animals all look so happy and content, the playground and assault course is amazing and the go karts are brilliant, everything is reasonably priced and the shop is well stocked and lovely. Will definitely be returning and recommending to all my friends.

Top place

We visited the farm yesterday 5/9/16 with our 5year old grandson. We were very impressed with the facilities. Imaginative planning and equipment with plenty of choice for play. Food,shop and toilets with good hand washing facilities. The animal areas were clean and animals well cared for. The high light was the barn with bales to climb on ....real childhood stuff! Thanks for a great time. P.s. Price is very reasonable compared with other open farms.
