We aim to offer farmyard fun for all ages, all year round, in the fresh air and tranquillity of the countryside! We have a plethora of lovely animals to meet, feed and cuddle, an indoor play barn to have fun in, go-karts to ride around on, a shop to browse and a cosy café to visit. Our riding school is also open all year round and offers lessons or hacking for all abilities as well as short pony rides.

What's on!

Term Time Fun at the Farm Park:

Lots to do during the week and at weekends….

There’s always plenty to do at the farm park, whatever the weather. Why not get a bag of animal feed and hand feed some of our lovely animals as you wander the farm park and visit our indoor animals in our barn and Ark; take time for the children to enjoy our super indoor play barn, The Rainforest, while you relax with a coffee; experience other play areas with our go-karts, bouncy castle, outdoor play equipment and sand-pit and take time for some delicious homemade food in our Garden Room café.

On weekdays during term time, we have structured times for events such as small animal handling, meerkat feeding, calf bottle feeding and pony grooming (with lamb bottle feeding from Spring to mid-summer too). At the weekends we also have short pony rides for the little ones available too (£2.50 a go)! Events can be subject to change and timings can be found on our daily Facebook page updates here.

Half Term 15-23 February:

Enjoy the hols at Matlock Farm Park!

Get the kids wrapped up warmly, ready to enjoy lots of fun in the fresh air!  As well as wandering the farm park to hand feed a wide range of friendly animals and enjoying our play facilities, February half term will see the return of our very popular ferret racing (place your bets please!) and with weather permitting, our Wallaby Encounter will also be running.

There will be short pony rides on every day (£2.50) and the chance to cuddle some very young chicks. With all the usual meerkat talks, calf bottle feeding and pony grooming too,  what's not to love?

Watch out for a great half term offer too!

Easter Time 27 March -19th April:

Spring is most definitely in the air and it's a fun packed time....

Such a special time of year at the farm park, with the start of lamb bottle feeding - YAY! - as well as Easter egg hunts, treasure trails and of course appearances from the Easter Bunny himself. From the beginning of April visitors can join in with feeding cade lambs daily, a wonderful experience for children and adults alike. There will be daily Easter Egg hunts from 30 March- 13 April when, led by a very friendly Easter bunny,  the children can go in search of some delicious chocolate treats. Treasure trails, pony rides and full range of interactive animal fun will be on daily from Saturday 27th March throughout the whole holiday period.

We will be hosting some super external events too over the main Easter weekend, including 'The Snow Sisters' singalong spectacular, exciting Planetarium experiences and children's entertainment shows from The Great Lorenzo .

We can't wait!
