Staff are very helpful and knowledgable. The talk was fantastic and informative. The animals are healthy. Lovely shop if you wanted to just buy wo products. Loved the baby goats!

We love animals!

Such a fun place! Lovely animals (including some precious lambs, as its lambing season right now), and amazing staff who obviously also love their animals. Be sure to go along on a feeding run, and feed the animals yourself. And plan to grab lunch and coffee at the warm, inviting cafe as well. We'll be back, for sure.

I have already changed my booking to 30 April 2022. Why do I still receive the notice and this? Apparently your system is not updated accordingly. I have contacted Jen Lorigan in Sheepworld on 22 February 2022. Regards Su/Yin Tsai

Took our grandson to Sheep World and enjoyed the 3 hours we spent there from feeding the different animals to watching the farm show was very good.
