My friends and I had a great time chatting to Harriet about sheep farming, learning how to herd and doing a little competition. It was all very relaxed and fun to do.
Great fun! Lovely setting and brilliant host. Highly recommended.
Such a great experience, really enjoyed doing something so different. Harriet was an amazing host, so informative and engaging. Would recommend to a friend.
What a great experience - fun, informative, relaxing and somehow therapeutic, we weren't sure on what to expect but it definitely surpassed any expectations we could have had. We loved hearing about the sheep, their lives and their personalities, and the little fun competition was such a great touch. We will definitely repeat the experience, share it with friends and family when they come to visit and will keep talking about it for a long time.
A fun and unique experience! Would easily recommend to friends.
We booked this as a team building exercise for work and thought it was fantastic!
Loved this. Becki and Harriet worked really hard to make sure this was enjoyable for our diverse group. We learnt so much about sheep farming, and it was great to have a go at scoring points in the competition. Really great set up, nice loos, good area to sit and watch from too. Would love to go back!
Lovely day in a very well managed farm. We were a small group, but had a very enjoyable time herding 6 sheep through arches, obstacles, even getting them to stand still ! Scored massive points !
I bought this as a present for myself and a friend to do for her birthday, and it was so much better than I expected! Becky was brilliant as the host, showing us the lambs and other sheep as we walked over to where we would be herding, and answering all our questions. The herding was so fun, and got competitive as we tried to beat our score! Would 100% recommend and have been telling everyone they should do this. Thanks for such a great morning!
It was an amazing experience. I was a little sceptical before going on how much herding you would actually do but it was very hands on and a lot of fun.
A really enjoyable morning activity, and very well organised. Becky and Chris were friendly and informative and made me feel very welcome. Would definitely recommend.
Great fun and really welcoming. It was also really interesting to learn more about life on the farm.
What a fun morning! ‘Go big or go home’ was our team decision and we lost with style but had a fabulous time lead by excellent hosts who made the whole experience informative and a real laugh. Not sure there were any new shepherds in the making …. Would definitely recommend.
This was so much fun. Me and my friend thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would love to do it again. This gets a big thumbs up from us.
Booked this to celebrate 2 friends birthday's as something different and really wasn't sure what to expect, we are all in our late 20's. Will say it was more fun then we could have imagined, the hosts (and sheep) were great and made sure we all have a good time! The other groups were a family with small children and another family and we all had a good time! Definitely a fun activity for anyone of any age and group looking to do something a little different ! x
An excellent experience, suitable for a couple of friends or bigger groups. The hosts were extremely friendly, it was clearly visible they enjoyed their work. Even the rain didn't spoil the day, with a pair of wellies and a waterproof jacket on I felt like a real farmer.
Had so much fun herding sheep and taking shelfies with them! Our host Becky was lovely. Would 100% recommend this experience ☺️
Well, what a lovely morning we had with great host, Becky, celebrating my son's birthday with his family and others. Gorgeous sheep with a mind of their own made this a fun activity, especially the team competition - 'The Black Sheep Boys' (men) against 'Ewe'll be Perfect' (women won!). My 16 month old grandson was entranced with the sheep and joined in enthusiastically. Thank you so much, Becky, for going over and above to make this day special.
Had a fantastic time would definitely recommend!!
This was great fun! We went as a group of 4 and had a great time competing on the assault course. A really unique and memorable experience
It was something different and we enjoyed the experience.
This was so much fun! Absolutely loved every minute of it. The hosts were fantastic and really easy going, the sheep were fantastic too! I would really recommend this to anyone - it was a great experience. I can't wait to come back in the spring and do it again! Thank you so much.
An enjoyable experience from start to finish. An activity suitable for all ages and group sizes. Hosts were interactive, fun and friendly. We thoughly enjoyed ourself and look forward to doing other events at this farm.
