Festive scenes on the farm

From Saturday 4th – Thursday 23rd December, there will be festive scenes on the farm for all the family to enjoy in addition to our lovely animals.

Can you find the sleigh belonging to someone special?! Did you know, Father Christmas usually parks his sleigh on the farm for safekeeping until Christmas Eve and it’s perfect for little helpers to sit in (and a fab family photo opportunity!). The farm is open every day from 10am – 3:30pm (last entry 3pm). No need to book. During this time admission is £5 per person (adults and children) and under 2’s are free. Food to feed the chickens is available for £1 per bag.

Come and wish all our animals a very ‘Happy Christmas!’.

Children’s Farm update: Monday 6th January, 2021.

Due the new lockdown restrictions announced on Monday 4th January, 2021 our Children’s Farm is closed to the public. Once we are able to reopen, this page along with our Facebook and Instagram pages will be updated. We can’t wait to welcome you all back. Its been a tough 12 months and like many businesses we have suffered financially. In fact, many people did not ask for a refund for pre-booked tickets, instead offering to donate the cost of the ticket to the farm animal fund instead. After repeated requests for this, we decided to set up a funding page. You can find further information here. If you would like to make a contribution towards the upkeep of our animals during this time, it would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for your continued support.
