What our visitors say
I took my son to Huckelberry Woods today and thoroughly enjoyed the experience . A hidden gem of a place for both adults and children . Once we walked through the little wooden hut entrance it was like stepping into a magical wood with chickens and turkeys running to greet us. The stars of show are , however , the 2 beautiful alpacas . They are so gentle and my son fell instantly in love . The owners are friendly and knowledgeable and obviously love their animals and happily answer all questions and are very knowledgeable . The lady in the cafe is wonderful and welcoming and it is ‘real’ coffee . The time flew by . Will definitely be coming back .
Huckleberry Woods is like no other animal experience. The animals roam freely and enjoy human contact. The teddy bear sheep loved being stroked and the chickens want to be hand fed. It was a lovely afternoon surrounded by nature.
Had a brilliant day out with my daughter and 2 granddaughters .. real gem of place .... super gentle animals -all so happy to be seeing people again after lockdown ...Real ‘Darling Buds of May’ setting in an Apple Orchard , super owners and staff keeping watchful eye ...
We had an absoulute fantastic morning at Huckleberry woods. All the staff and animals are very friendly and welcoming. Brillant for all ages and abilties. Thankyou for a fantastic morning and we would love to come back again.
Such a beautiful farm with well looked after animals. The pig petting experience exceeded expectations and Scarlett was amazing ! We stroked, walked , tickled and played with piglets for ages . We thought there’d be one, but there were 7! Not only that but we were able to interact with alpacas, sheep , donkeys , sheep and chickens too ! Book ! Thanks
Soooooo pleased you can reopen April 12th!
A huge thank you to Belinda & her wonderful team for ensuring that our visit yesterday for my son's 9th birthday was a fantastic experience. The farm is wonderful and having visited many other animal themed attractions previously, Huckleberry Woods stood out as one of the best we've been to. Belinda & her team are welcoming, knowledgeable and truly care about the animals. We're in the area on holiday but if we lived a little closer, I'm sure we'd be regular visitors!
Just wanted to say a big thank you following our visit today. It's honestly one of the most chilled out, enjoyable days we've had for a long time. The fact that you don't let too many people in at once makes such a difference to the experience, and my son didn't stop talking about his turkey cuddles all day :)
Thanks go to Belinda, Bill and team for their hard work in making the 'Slightly Spooky' event so memorable. There was just the right amount of fun and scariness for the age group present. Being led through the witch's wood by sparkle lit miniature donkeys was magical and Bill did a great job reading the stories while being tormented by the mischievous witch. Everyone went out of their way to make our experience really special and it was lovely to see the delight on the face of my granddaughter as she interacted with and helped feed the gorgeous animals (once she'd overcome her nerves).The teddy bear sheep were a special favorite and being met by a scurrying flock of fluffy chickens caused great joy.The alpacas were so cute and curious. The welfare of both animals and visitors was paramount and the love bestowed was obvious (all animals named), thanks too for all the interesting and knowledgeable information. Well done one and all.
Second visit to Huckleberry Woods and yet again it was wonderful!!! Belinda is a fab host and her assistant Tobie was fantastic. So enthusiastic and kind. It’s our happy place and we can’t recommend it enough. Thank you for letting us cuddle the lambs. Perfect birthday treat for my daughter. see you soon! xx
Amazing morning - walking the friendly, lovely alpacas and meeting all the other animals. Such a relaxed atmosphere where the animals obviously come first. Great owners who are happy to share their knowledge about keeping the animals. Our first visit and already planning the next. Can’t recommend this highly enough!
Just arrived home from our first experience of Huckleberry Woods and it's hard to put into words.... absolutely fantastic time - it was for our daughters 5th birthday present and we booked the party package. they loved walking the teddy bear lambs and having cuddling and feeding time with them. the interation available with the beautiful animals is amazing and we were even lucky enough to be greeted by baby chicks who were only 1 1/2 weeks old, such an amazing experience. Belinda, Bill and the other staff could not have been more welcoming and informative, we were able to feed the donkeys, chickens, alpacas, plus the pig fishing which was great fun. amazing treasure hunt, with the kids able to explore farther afield in the woods etc. lovely play area all the kids, and adults thought it was brilliant. we literally could not have asked for more! thank u so much for making our little girls 5th birthday treat so amazing. we will definitely be returning for another visit soon. xxx

We visited today and fell in Love with this place. It was beautiful, very clean and had the friendliest staff. The animals are clearly very loved and looked after, My little girl was delighted. We will definitely be back and highly recommend. Charming :) Thank you xx
We love Huckleberry woods, and have visited twice now. the staff are so welcoming and caring. The animals are awesome and it is a really relaxing place to spend time with family. my boys love the play area too. My mum enjoyed a Donkey walk today and my son really enjoyed pig fishing. Thank you for a lovely afternoon. hope to be back again soon. xx
An unique experience...perfect!
My daughter and I enjoyed our visit immensely. I would highly recommend this experience. The owners and staff were all so helpful with info on all the animals. We learnt so much. It feels so calm there. The animals are all so loved and looked after. There are not many people at each visit so it felt as if we had a private tour. We were smiling the whole time!
My 6 year old daughter had her birthday party at Huckleberry Woods. It was absolutely perfect for her and a small group of friends. Belinda made us very welcome and all of the kids loved the experience. We will definitely be returning again soon!
What a fantastic morning, the owners Belinda & Bill are so genuine, welcoming and knowledgeable as are their fab friends. Love that it’s family run, unpretentious and tranquil. A real escape, You wander around a beautiful orchard, are able to get so close with animals who you can clearly see are so content.
Such a gorgeous little place! Really rustic and owned by a really lovely couple...Perfect for our little boy, who loved taking one of the micro pigs for a walk. Will definitely be returning and recommending to everyone.
We had an absolutely fabulous time we were able to take our time looking around and as for our piggie walk experience it was amazing, my daughter throughly enjoyed it and my friend was ecstatic as she adores pigs. The pigs were wonderful and calm to walk, more interested on what goodies they could find bless them! The alpacas were adorable and so cute. The star of the show was of course the chicken duck, he was so lovely and sweet. Loved the new baby chicks and of course the ducks heading off for their morning walk. Cant believe we spend almost 3 hours there. Loved the gluten free donuts, delicious and the owners are a fab and friendly couple who really are passionate about their little venture. It was an amazing and personal experience and we cant wait to book and go again. Thank you for having us and we look forward to coming again soon xxxxx
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for such a lovely party on Saturday. Friends and parents loved it and we honestly think it’s the most successful party we’ve ever had. Thanks and best wishes
What a fantastic hidden treasure of a place. Lovely time spent walking the micro pig Lord Truffles, pig fishing, feeding the donkeys, talking to the alpacas and them humming back, ducks and chickens. Nice play park and woodlands to explore. Lovely friendly owners Belinda and her husband. Ideal for all ages. Looking forward to having my daughters birthday party there. Will definitely go back again
We had the most wonderful visit today. My little girl came away asking when she could visit again!! It was so so lovely to meet you both, and to see the passion and love you have for your little farm. The animals are beautifully cared for, the welcome is warm, there is nothing commercial or spoilt about the place... it is all just lovely. And the pig walking was a fabulous experience. Trotsky was a very well behaved little piggy! Thank you once again for a very memorable birthday treat for an animal mad 6 year old!
What a lovely little find. We had the most idyllic afternoon, 3 adults and two children (1 & 4) We has the place to ourselves. The owners were very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the animals. There were plenty of animals to see and feed, a haunted mine, to play in and mine for gems. Teepees, gorgeous flowery meadows and tree stumps to grab some lovely photos.
We had a wonderful afternoon yesterday here! Belinda and Bill are so welcoming and lovely with the children; my son got to feed all the animals and do ‘pig fishing’, he also enjoyed playing in the Tee Pees and panning for jewels by the haunted mine. My 1 year old loved seeing the micro animals too.
I visited the farm today with my husband and 7 year old daughter, what a lovely place to go, so welcoming and the owners are wandering about and on hand to answer questions about the animals, so relaxed and great play area for the children. We did the treasure hunt, played on the swings, held a chicken and made friends with the miniature donkeys. The little pigs are adorable and I’ve never seen anything cuter than the baby alpacas. �
What a fab way to spend a morning!! We took our 2yr old and a 13yr old with us today and both loved it in equal measures. Would highly recommend to anyone. We’ve booked a birthday party there too x
I booked the micropig walk for my teenage daughter as a surprise. We were lucky to have chosen a beautiful sunny afternoon and we were the only people there. Bridget was so welcoming, kind and friendly. Belinda was also very friendly and so knowledgeable and passionate about her animals, we were really looked after.
Took my girls here for a birthday treat to walk the pigs and see the animals and it was so lovely! A nice change from busy crowded zoos etc, as it's a small intimate family run place. The owners are so lovely and spent lots of time with the girls telling them all about the animals etc. Will definitely be going back!
Wow what a lovely day. I highly recommend this place I went today with my 9 year old and our friends and we all had a fabulous time. My daughter walked the pig which she thoroughly enjoyed and then we spent to rest of the time exploring and meeting the animals. We also went fishing for a pig which was good fun. We felt totally relaxed here and the family that own/run it were so lovely and very welcoming. If you want something different to the normal farms and zoo then this is definitely the place. They only let a few families in at a time so it is not over crowded and it's so beautiful and relaxing being able to explore. Will most definitely be going back x
This is a great place to bring the family - we went with kids aged 10 and 14 who are already demanding to come back. We were a bit worried that the older boy would think it was a bit young for him and beneath his dignity, but he was thrilled by the pig walking and chicken cuddling. You don't walk the pigs - they walk you and you just drop the lead if they go to fast. The younger one let himself be walked into a thicket from which he had to be rescued, so that was an adventure. This isn't a neat and tidy, tarmac paths kind of place - it's an old, neglected orchard being given a new lease of life so there are tree roots, rabbit holes, mud and everything to make an exciting but safe outing for youngsters (and their grandparents). Really worth a visit.
Huckleberry woods is an amazing experience,small friendly and such a magical oasis of calm. The animals are beautifully looked after and me and my kids had such a lovely time exploring the garden and getting to feed the animals. Our visit to the micro farm was rounded of by a proper cup of tea served in beautiful china in the summer house.
Booked and went today with our two girls aged 2&4. People that own it are lovely! Very friendly, helpful and brilliant with the kids. Very nice to chat to. Liked the freedom of being able to wander around and do the treasure hunt which was fun. Pig fishing was definitely unique! And the animals are really sweet and really nice enclosures. Would go back in the summer once the alpacas are settled. Thank you for helping to make some lovely memories x
We met the three little piggies of Huckleberry Woods last week and it was so much fun. We loved all three and it was difficult to choose which one we wanted to take for a walk. Even though they are still babies they happily let my 7 and 9 year olds walk them around the orchard for ages. Belinda was so good with the children, explaining what they needed to do and how to look after the pigs. Definitely a unique and educational experience for any age. Well worth a trip.
My son Jack said his visit to Huckleberry Woods was 'The best in the world'. It's just the right size to take little ones to. We almost had the place to ourselves, not crowded like the usual places.
We visited Huckleberry Woods with our children to walk the pigs - we all had a great time. The kids loved every minute - in such beautiful, relaxing surroundings. Could not recommend it more highly. - Bill & Belinda were such great hosts
