OVERVIEW OF EXPERIENCE:

Overall mark out of 10 (1 being the worst and 10 the best):  10/10

What did you enjoy most about the day? It was fascinating to go inside the lambing tent and learn about the whole process. The staff were really helpful and informative and the kids loved seeing the newborn lambs – some wee only a couple of hours old!

What didn’t you or your kids enjoy? There is nothing we didn’t enjoy we had a fabulous day

If you could make one suggestion to the attraction to enhance your experience what would it be? No changes – it is a great day out and there is somethign for children of all ages (Up to around 12/13) to do.  

Would you go back on another day or when the kids were older? Yes – most definately

Was there enough to do for a whole day, or is it more of a morning or afternoon event? Willows Farm certainly can be a whole day event and there is plenty to do but then you could just as happily spend a whole morning there.

Are there things to do and see both indoor and outdoor or is this a weather dependent attraction? No both indoor and outdoor.

ENTRANCE

Overall mark out of 10 (1 being the worst and 10 the best) 9/10

Have you been given all the information that you needed for the day including maps and programme of events or is there anything else that you would have like to receive? You get a guide for the day at the entrance and this tells you when all the special events and activites are on. 

Do you have to queue for long to get in, and was there anything to keep the kids amused whilst you are queuing? There was no queue when we went, but in the past when there has been it has moved quite quickly and they always put on extra staff.

MAIN ATTRACTION

Overall mark out of 10 (1 being the worst and 10 the best): 10/10

Is the attraction easy to find/well signposted around local  area?  Yes

Is the attraction easy to navigate around once you are inside? Yes

Is there room to easily wheel a buggy (single, double or triple around)?  Yes

In your opinion is the attraction suitable for children of different ages regardless of the age restrictions advised by the attraction itself

What is there for 0-2 year olds? Yes – there is lots of visual stimulus

What is there for 3 – 6 year olds?  Great for toddlers

What is there for 6- 12 year olds? Perfect

What additional costs are they when you are in the attraction?  There are a few small things that you could pay for e.g gold digging but this is very minor and there is so much to do that is included in the price.

What day of the week are you visiting the attraction? It was a Thursday

Do you find the volume of people at the attraction acceptable (i.e. to busy, empty, comfortable) and what is busiest time of the day?  The event itself was quiet but this could be due to the amount of rain we had had previously and the flooding, however weekends and school holidays get very busy.

TOILET CHANGING FACILITIES

Overall mark out of 10 (1 being the worst and 10 the best): 8/10

Were the toilets clean? Yes

Were there separate baby changing facilities? If so, were they clean and user friendly (e.g. sufficient space for buggies)  Yes

 Were the toilets well located to the main attractions?  Yes

FOOD/REFRESHMENT FACILITIES

Overall mark out of 10 (1 being the worst and 10 the best): 8/10

Would you recommend the restaurant/refreshment facilities? What was there to eat for you and the kids?   Lots of variety but can be quite expensive.

Was the food reasonable priced? What did you and the kids end up eating there?  No as this was included in the special event

Can you feed the baby there and are there facilities to heat baby food (e.g. microwave and bottle warmer)?  Yes

Is there a picnic area (indoors/outdoors)? Yes

GIFT SHOP

Did the attraction have a gift shop? Yes

Did you go in? No

ANYTHING TO ADD?

Yes, it was a great day out and I would certainly go back again soon and take my 7 year old too. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and if you do spend the whole day there, then it is good value for money.
