This is one attraction that’s full of flavour and the free entry makes it very easy to swallow! Charlottes is the tasty combination of an ice cream parlour with a rare breed's farm.
Sample the homemade award winning Jersey ice cream and sorbet, while enjoying the stunning views over the Calder Valley. Down on the farm see alpacas, wallabies, giant rabbits, goats, rare breed birds, peacocks strutting their stuff and friendly farmyard favourites donkeys and cows.
In the grounds there’s lots to keep the kids entertained! Ride the Charlotte’s Express, a train that takes you all around the park, or head to the tractor buggy ride! There’s crazy golf, giant inflatables with a 30 ft. slide and a new outdoor adventure play area with tractor and combine harvester!

An amazing day out!!!

I have been roaming around my local areas to experience various different attractions and places. I have a 2 year old boy and he loves exploring and trying free things! We went with my sister as we all LOVE nature and animals! We love farms and so far this one was the best one out of them all!!! It is a good size and you feel very relaxed while you are there. My son even fed the goats and touched them with glee! There is no time limit and admissions are free! You HAVE to try their ice-cream in the café. They also have an ice-cream stand outside. Charlottes ice-cream are well known for their tasty and various ice-cream flavours! You can take your push chair in and there is a toilet area with a baby changing section. They have various types of animals and birds such as the beautiful peacocks and Rhea (similar to an Ostrich.) There are also some Gold Laced Wyandotte Chickens and Alpacas to name a few!!! It was a lovely day out. I would recommend it to all... old and young! Lovely animals from various other countries around the world. Lovely sceneries. Children can go on a train ride or a tractor ride! There is a outdoor soft playground area with a slide for very young children and one for the older children and another slide in the outdoor eating area with the picnic benches. Amazing day out. I hope to do it again very soon! Thank you to the owners of this farm and ice-cream cafe! :) :D
Enjoyed all day!

I went to charlottes farm today 25.07.17 it was really nice for both of my boys aged 3 and 6 they loved the animals and the rides ans also the park. Rides are affordable and very long which is a bonus!! Food is pricey but okay because free parking and free admission. Delicious icecream. But staff dont smile or welcome you which was a little let down :( otherwise i will come here again as I have both of my kids who really enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

Took my nearly 3 year old and she loved it and didn't want to leave. Quite a few animals which looked well looked after and the peacocks were lovely. The park was great different to other places and all this is free. The Ice cream was lovely and the one we got for my daughter came in a face cup that you could take home which she thought was great. Yes the cafe is a bit pricey but seen as rest is free I think it is warranted.
Terrible staff attitude -refused tap water for kid

This place used to be really good, but something has changed. The staff attitude has really gone downhill. I just took my mother and my two sons. We bought 2 coffees and two ice-creams. We asked for two glasses of tap water which we were grudgingly given but they were tiny. When I asked for a refill I was told it was one glass per visit. I queried it and got a really inappropriate and aggressive mounthful from the lady. Afterwards, the lady on the next door table leaned over and said that this is a common problem. It spoiled the outing and we won't be returning
