Here at Matlock Farm Park, we are open all year round and hope to give you a wonderful visit in the fresh air and tranquility of the countryside. There is plenty to do for children, with lots of animals to see and feed, as well as smaller cuddly animals to pet in our barn. Learn more about our meerkats through our daily talks, short pony rides are on most days and you can have a free bet on our ferret races! We have a variety of play equipment, go-carts, a lovely café and a shop to browse. We also have a riding school and trekking centre, offering riding to all abilities.

Special events are on throughout the year, we cater for schools and groups and we do great birthday parties too. We hope to see you soon!
