Playtime - Matlock Farm Park

It’s always great fun at Matlock Farm Park!

From our adventure playground to meeting the animals, the children (and adults) will get plenty of fresh air throughout the day which will help everyone get a good night’s sleep!

For families visiting, our aim has always been to allow the grown-ups to relax while the children have fun. There are plenty of areas to rest, but at the same time allowing children to be in full view of their accompanying adult.

Of course, you don’t need to have children to visit Matlock Farm Park! Adults love meeting, feeding and learning more about our animals too.

Rainforest playbarn

Our indoor play area is a large jungle-themed indoor climbing frame complete with various slides and scramble nets. Let the children burn off some energy in the magic of the rainforest!

An underwater-themed soft play area is available for toddlers complete with an amazing interactive eye-spy panel and soft building blocks.

While the children are having fun the adults can take the time to have a coffee and a snack and sit in the relaxing sounds of the Amazon rainforest.

Tots’ area

We have a wonderful outdoor play area carefully designed for our younger children.

There is a wooden pirate ship, slides and climbing areas for imaginations to run wild.

With a large sandpit, Wendy house and sit-on original tractor, this has become a well- loved area of the farm park.


Adventure playground

Our outdoor adventure playground provides lots of fun for the over 3s.

There are balancing beams and rope bridges for those who want a challenge, a ladder and a big slide for those that just want fun. The children will still be in full view of our animals and can watch them as they play.

Go-kart track

For £1.00 a go our go-kart track is always a big hit and will provide endless fun and entertainment. There is room for an adult to sit on our tractor style go-karts to assist their child or, under adult supervision, a child may drive independently. For the not so playful adult there is plenty of seating for you to relax and watch the kids play.

Freedom to Roam!

As well as our range of play equipment, we also have large lawned areas, where children can simply enjoy the freedom of running around and playing games, including our giant chess board. We also have a football goal and balls for any aspiring footballers!
