  • “Thank you so much for a great visit to Down at the Farm this Christmas. Our children were amazed by your decorations and thoroughly enjoyed having their photos taken on Santas sleigh (as did the teachers), the presents were fantastic too! It was well put together and the adults commented on how special it was to get close to real reindeer. It has certainly got us in the Christmas mood!” Julie white
