Set in part of a 600 acre working farm, the Park provides a great day out with varied activities for all the family. Animals to see include wallabies, meerkats, micro-pigs’ lamas, goats, turkeys, peacocks, cattle and sheep to name a few. The pet rabbits are always a favourite with the children, along with the chance to help feed the young lambs (seasonal). Have a free bet on fun ferret and sheep races, enjoy a wallaby encounter, help to feed the meerkats and have an interactive experience with a barn owl or snake.
Children will learn about the countryside and have tremendous fun as they go. There are specially designed playgrounds and even a go-kart track for the kids, along with places for the adults to relax too. Special event days are held throughout the year, please ring for details. 01246 590200.
