The From Farm to Fork session was brilliant and covered so many skills. (December 2019 - Primary - Post No: 18468 )

Barleylands is a lovely venue and the desire to educate the children is clearly there. As a teacher, I am always looking for ways to challenge the children and extend their learning. I feel that this is lacking during the visit and that there was not enough learning for us to build on, following the visit. A questionnaire or quiz would have been great in the poly tunnels for example. (December 2019 - Primary - Post No: 18179 )

We regularly do school trips here with a range of different year groups, Reception through to Year 4 and always find them to be well organised and very enjoyable experiences. (June 2019 - Primary - Post No: 13850 )




A very well-organised trip. The staff at Barleylands were very understanding of the needs of our children and their delivery was age-appropriate and fun. (June 2019 - Primary - Post No: 13697 )

A fantastic day, age appropriate and well-organised. The staff could not have been more accommodating. (July 2018 - Primary - Post No: 5694 )




It was an excellent venue, staff were attentive and informative. It was an enjoyable and safe trip for all of the children. (July 2018 - Primary - Post No: 5603 )




Clean facilities and well maintained. Friendly staff who went out of their way to help the children on the tractors but poor value for money. (July 2018 - Primary - Post No: 5233 )
