Our Open Farm

Welcome Back!

We want all our visitors and staff to be safe during the pandemic and we will continue to follow government guidelines.

Spring on the Open Farm has to be a little different this year.

Come and enjoy seeing our farm animals including new born lambs and chicks.

See the animals in the fields and say hello to the pigs and llamas, our ponies and donkey and not forgetting dear Nellie our shire horse.

Our wonderful outdoor play area is ready for young visitors, but sadly the haybarn and other barns are categorised as indoor areas and cannot be opened yet.

You will be able to see sheep nursing their lambs through the windows of the barn.

We are sorry but at the moment, we cannot hold timed events, or the public bottle feeding of the lambs.

We ask all our visitors to follow the government rules regarding social distancing. Have fun and stay safe.


Tickets for entry to the Open Farm are currently reduced to £5.00 per person.
(Free entry for children under 3. Carers are free also. But you will be asked to book free tickets for them too )

Please note that it is necessary to pre-book tickets, which can be done on this website.

Please see the home page.

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

Important News For Season Ticket Holders

As visits to the Open Farm and Play Area have been disrupted over the last year we have decided to extend the validity of 2020 Season Tickets for a further year.

If you have a Season Ticket which has an expiry date between 24 March 2020 and 31 December 2021 then we will honour it for a further year from the date of expiry shown on the ticket. So if it says for example – Expiry 24 July 2020 then you are welcome to continue to use it until 24 July 2021.

It would be extremely helpful to know when you are planning a visit so please either call us or email in advance.  This means that we can manage better the numbers of visitors on the Open Farm for each session.
