Deen City Farm
Deen City Farm

This pretty-as-a-picture farm is part of The National Trust’s Morden Hall Park. Deen City Farm's lovely little shop sells second-hand children’s’ books, animal feed and bedding, plus locally sourced jams. The crew of about 150 animals includes a dope-looking monochrome alpaca called Kimby, who rolls with Hemby the ram and Guernsey goats Basil and Rosemary (#squadgoals). Keep an ear out for Edna the barn owl, apparently a real conversationalist.

The community-run gardens have all the usual veggies. While you’re exploring outside, make sure you check out the Cob Building with its roof made from recycled plastic bottles. There’s always loads happening at Deen City Farm, from pig feeding to cuddles with lambs, plus the busy riding school with twelve horses and ponies. Miriam Bouteba

Me, my friends and my friend's 2 year old came here last weekend and had a lovely time! Such a great location and we were blessed with fabulous weather. All the animals were friendly and approachable- more than happy to be stroked providing you had food! There were little bags of feed available at the front, and all the children seemed to be having a really fun time. A nice layout and size, not too massive for little feet to walk around but it doesn't feel cramped either. The little one we were with loved watching the older children on the horses at the riding club that was also there and we had trouble dragging her out of the children's playground! There's also a little cafe with a good range of food at great prices- oh and a gift shop too! I would definitely recommend this place as a great day out if you've got little people to entertain!


I used to have fond thoughts about Deen City Farm, it was a great place to take children to see some animals and it was an easy place to reach on the bus. Those were the reasons we chose to book a party there rather than somewhere else. We booked the Own A Pony day for 4 girls. However... beware of their no refund policy! We booked for one date, they accidentally wrote down another. This would have been fine if their process was such that this mistake had been caught. Their process is to send out a confirmation email and when that leaves their hands their responsibility and care stops! If you are like us and never receive that email and thus never know there is anything to query... your money is LOST! There will be no refund for the mistake made nor a re-booking at no extra cost. Great for a free day out... but buyer beware if you decide to spend money with them, there is no customer protection when things go wrong.


wow what a transformation the coffee shop has had really lovely food at reasonable prices and very child friendly. the farm is a fun place to visit and costs nothing and its nice to get a warm drink in the warm cafe on a cold day!!!


I volunteer at the farm and can say I very much disagree as there are big spaces for the animals to run about there are plenty of enclosure space and the cafe is perfectly fine for your information theres always a smiling face and help available if you call for it.

Took our 2 1/2 year old to Deen City Farm a couple of weekends ago and I have to say it was not as impressive as I thought. Firstly ALL the animals were in cages or enclosures or some description - I hardly call that interacting with the animals. The gardens were very neat and well maintained. We shared a plate of chips in the cafe - which was okay, they were a bit oily but did the job till we got home to have our proper lunch. What he loved most was watching the older children ride horses at the Riding School section of the farm. It was an okay experience but we have been to Surrey Docks Farm and have to say if you want a hands on experience, that is the place to go!
