Our Open Farm

School Holidays are here and we are delighted that the Open Farm will continue to be open to visitors throughout the summer.

Come and enjoy seeing our farm animals in the fields and the farmyard. Say hello to the pigs and llamas, our ponies and donkey and not forgetting dear Nellie, our shire horse.

Our wonderful play area is ready for young visitors with imagination and bags of energy! Our play barn, with hay bales, which the children can play on and the small animal barn are open.

On Wednesday in August, we will have extra attractions such as a Bouncy Castle, Musical Entertainment, Circus Entertainers and Static Falconry. We are holding our very own Sports Day too. There will be a slight increase in the cost of the tickets on these days. Please see below for details when events are taking place.

Entry to the Open Farm continues to be by pre-booked ticket only.

News and Updates

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.
