You might recognise Jimmy Doherty’s farm from the BBC documentary.
This rare breed's farm is home to ponies, donkeys, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, sheep, goats, geese, ducks, cows, pigs and much more. Visitors can feed all the animals using the bags of food available and get even closer with special animal encounters every weekend and during the school holidays.
Over in the butterfly house see beautiful and colourful tropical butterflies gracefully flutter by you and then take the family outside to enjoy the woodland walk before heading to the wooden playground. The bouncy pillow, giant sandpit, climbing pyramids, bouncy animals, play vehicles, sports challenge and hobbit house will all be huge hits, leaving you with sleepy, satisfied children at the end of a great family day out.
A great mix of adventure play, the great outdoors and lots of animals!

Had a nice afternoon at Jimmy's but could be better. Definitely a place for the young ones. 13yr old was bored! Not much of a farm experience as pigs & cows too far away. Fenced in like a zoo ? Can feed Sheep, Goats & Lamas though. Admission price £22 but drinks, food, ices, balloons etc soon mounts up! Spent £50 - 2 adults, 3yr & 13yr for 3hrs. Not pushchair friendly, lots of gravel & steps.
