Newbridge Farm Reviews

Lovely place to visit with little ones

"Lovely petting farm, lovely garden with big playground area. It’s a nice place to burn all those energies off. 😀"


Something for everyone!

"Having passed the sign on the motorway many times, I was delighted to finally get to visit Newbridge House and Farm on the 23rd. What a surprise! We really enjoyed the tour of the house, which was delivered in an informative and relaxed way. I think our guides name was Tuan.

The grounds and farm are beautiful and really well kept. There is a great variety of animals and birds - some of which were quite exotic. The grounds are free, and what you pay to visit the house/farm is well worth it. I had no expectations, and must say I was pleasantly surprised. A visit here is a great way to spend a few hours and I'd highly recommend it."
