(January 2019 - Secondary School)




Herd Farm was a great venue but was let down by the weather. Activities in the round houses had potential however the dull day made visibility difficult and therefore the children struggled. There was no access to indoors and on a cold, wet day the children needed to be more active to stay warm or a fire could have been lit over dinner. Groups who visited on days with better weather, had a much more successful visit. (November 2018 - Primary School)




Activities pitched very well. Excellent staff support the children very well. Great accommodation and excellent food. (November 2018 - Primary School)




A superb experience, enjoyed by students and staff. Students involved themselves in some activities that truly stretched them. (November 2018 - Secondary School)




We had a really fantastic trip to Herd Farm led by Tina and Ian. The children loved the activities of tepee building, exploring the round houses and hunting deer. It really enhanced our learning of the stone age topic and the children came away having really enhanced their knowledge. (November 2018 - Primary School)




(October 2018 - Primary School)




The visit was enjoyable for the children. A little bit slow paced. (October 2018 - Primary School)




Herd farm is an excellent center with lots of facilities to allow students to experience outdoor activities. It is well resourced and staffed to allow all students to have engaging experiences. (July 2018 - Secondary School)

The presentations by the leaders were very informative. They thoroughly explained the artefacts shown and allowed some children to look/hold them more closely. It would have been helpful/more engaging if all of the children were able to have a closer look at the artefacts. The children had a selection of activities to participate in such as tee-pee building, spear throwing and observation of a fire being made. It may have been more beneficial to be involved in more activities such as these as the more active part of the day was thoroughly enjoyed by the children. (February 2018 - Primary School)




We have used herd farm for a number of years and are always impressed with their site and staff. (January 2018 - Secondary School)




Herd farm is an excellent facility that we would highly recommend. There are a number of different activities available and staff strive to offer an appropriate experience for all students. (January 2018 - Secondary School)
