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.
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 and pony grooming (with lamb bottle feeding from Spring to mid-summer too). At the weekends we also have ferret racing, wallaby encounters and 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.
