  • Brilliant day in Pennywell Farm. Great activities and we enjoyed every single activity. Pets area were fun and lovely for kids and kids loved to hold the piggy 🐷. There are few playgrounds for young kids below 5 years old. Well designed for young kids. It’s great for family. Don’t miss their farm!! Awesome farm and awesome staffs!
  • First ever visit and was much bigger than I imagined. Lovely friendly staff, especially the tractor man, sweet guy. Plenty of picnic areas, plenty of play areas and cute animals to pet. 1 star lost, due to a dodgem style ride, taking my money and not working. Should have had an out of order sign on it. Other than that, lovely place to visit 😁
