Our Open Farm

Home to some of the friendliest farm animals around!

Tickets for entry to the Open Farm are £5.00 per head. There is no charge for children under 3. Season tickets are also available at £40 per person or child.

Playful rabbits and guinea pigs. A giddying array of traditional and rare breed chickens. Huge pigs and tiny harvest mice. Lofty llamas, gorgeous goats, and fluffy sheep. There are timed events throughout the day, including our prize-winning herd of pedigree Jersey cows being milked each afternoon.

We have a picnic area, a nature trail around the farm, and when you need to let off some steam we have two outdoor playgrounds as well as our highly popular hay play barn. We can also cater for educational visits.

We regret that we cannot welcome dogs (except assistance dogs) on to the Open Farm area.
