Please note, a registered carer visitor is only entitled to reduced general entry to Matlock Farm Park upon presentation of an identification badge provided by a local council or private care organisation OR upon presentation of a DLA/PIP OR a relevant Access card and only when the person they care for accompanying them pays full entrance fee.

Any discounts or offers displayed online or elsewhere are available for limited quantities and periods only. Our Parent & Toddler Offer and Senior Citizen Meal Deal offer as shown on the Offers page of our website are not available to purchase online, only in person at the farm park on the day of visiting. Once purchased online or in person at Matlock Farm Park, tickets shall not be used in conjunction with any other offer.

Our Parent & Toddler Coffee Morning offer and Senior Citizen Meal Deal offer are only valid Monday-Fridays, term time only, as per the term dates displayed on our Offers page of this website. These deals are not valid on Bank Holidays, Easter Weekends or special event days as listed on our website’s What’s On page. For the Parent & Toddler deal, visitors must enter the farm park before 11.30am to qualify and a free hot drink is only available when it is ordered before 11.30am from a Matlock Farm Park owned catering outlet. A second adult with the child can receive discounted entry of £11.50, although this does not include a free hot drink.

The Senior Citizen Meal Deal is for visitors over 60 years and this specific meal deal ticket must be purchased on the door to redeem food in the cafe. Meals for this deal are on a special separate menu to the main cafe menu. Entry to the farm park and ordering the meal must be before 2.30pm.

 Online Booking

Prices are correct at the time of going to press and are subject to change without notification. This does not affect tickets already purchased online. The online booking system permits the customer to purchase tickets for a specific date with a specific arrival time as displayed on the ticket. Tickets which have a date that has expired will not be accepted. We reserve the right to refuse entry to those arriving later than their arrival time slot.

Please print out your ticket purchase confirmation with bar code and present upon arrival at the farm park OR show it to our staff on your smart phone upon arrival.

Refunds cannot be given unless Matlock Farm Park has to close for any unexpected reason on a given day. In such a situation, a full refund of the purchase will be given to the purchaser for that day’s pre-booked ticket. Should this situation arise, we will email purchasers with details or you may wish to email .

Gift Vouchers and Complimentary day passes

No gift voucher, complimentary day pass or kids go free voucher is valid for use on the day of the annual Peak District Highland Games.

Complimentary day passes and Kids go free vouchers are not valid on Easter weekends or Bank Holiday weekends. They are both only valid for general farm park entry and not for use for Christmas special events or any other special events that require separate event tickets instead of general day tickets.

No gift voucher or pass to run in conjunction with any other offer/voucher.

No gift voucher is valid unless it has a certified serial number (and an authorisation signature if it is a card voucher supplied directly by Matlock Farm Park).

Monetary gift vouchers are available to use only for farm park entry, at Matlock Farm Park owned catering outlets or in the shop.

Management reserve the right to refuse admission to visitors who are behaving inappropriately, threatening staff or carrying out an illegal act. This list of reasons is non-exhaustive.

 Annual Passes

A Matlock Farm Park Annual Pass is heavily discounted and is valid for one year from the date of purchase. The Annual Pass may be used any time and only for general park entry when Matlock Farm Park is open, however for the Peak District Highland Games event and special Christmas events, annual pass holders will receive a discount on those event tickets.

When purchasing an annual pass from 8th May 2024 onwards, if the pass holder has a registered carer, the carer will be required to purchase a heavily discounted carer day ticket, priced at £5.50, each time they attend the park with the annual pass holder they care for. This can be purchased online prior to visiting or on the door, on the day of the visit. The carer will only be permitted farm park entry on a discounted carer ticket with evidence of carer status, as stated in our carer information above.

An Annual Pass is non-transferable and will only admit the named Annual Pass holder(s). It must be shown on each visit to gain entrance to the Park.

As annual passes are already heavily discounted, annual pass holders will not be able to access other offers and discounts run by the farm park which apply to day entry ticket holders.

There will be a £5 administration fee to replace an Annual Pass if lost or damaged.

Normal Terms and Conditions of entry to Matlock Farm Park apply.

All benefits attributed to the Annual Pass will apply to the ‘named Annual Pass Holder(s) only’.

The Management reserve the right to refuse entry, issue or withdraw an Annual Pass and to alter the programme of events, opening times, prices and terms and conditions without prior notice. Reasons for refusal of entry may be if the visitor is behaving inappropriately, in a threatening manner or carrying out an illegal act. Withdrawal of an annual pass may occur if inappropriate behaviour is consistent or the use of the pass has been exploited, for instance by sharing the pass to gain farm park entry for individuals not named on the annual pass. Such reasons for refusal of entry, issue or withdrawal are non-exhaustive.

Annual Pass holders are reminded that for operational, technical, safety or other reasons, any advertised exhibits, attractions or facilities on site may be closed, removed, altered or unavailable at any time. No refund or discount on ticket prices will be offered should any of these circumstances arise, regardless of the duration of such circumstances.

An Annual Pass cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.
