    This was an excellent value for money experience. The trip over on the TSS Earnslaw was comfortable and being able to see the engine room was a bonus. The farm park tour and afternoon were both excellent despite the rain with brollys provided and the amphitheater being under cover. The sheep herding display was short but very interesting with the dogs being well loved by their owner. Our guide Peter was knowledgeable, loved his animals, and good with the kids on the tour. A thoroughly nice guy and good farmer. The afternoon tea was also excellent - beautiful scones and cakes and great service. Highly recommended!

    Great journey on the Earnslaw, such a shame that it rained all day. I did try to defer to the next day but this was not very flexible due to less than 24 hours notice. Animal farm was great - would have been more enjoyable on a dry day of course. The afternoon tea was quite average ; old scones & low quality confectionery jam, plus full of sparrows pooping everywhere & eating the food!

    Its very cool to be on TSS Earnslaw Cruise ship. The Walter Peak Farm Tour is also very interesting. Its unique experience to see how to sheer a sheep and how the dogs work on a farm. Other animals on the farm are also very cute and lively, can be real close to them.
