Please note our outdoor animal paddocks are mainly empty as they are being rested over the winter to allow the grass to regrow. Most of our animals can still be seen in the animal barn or on the Farmyard Safari Tractor and Trailer Ride.

Get up close to a range of animals at the Adventure Farm. In the Animal Barn and large outdoor paddocks, you’ll see lots of farm animals including pigs, sheep, cows, Shetland ponies, donkeys, quails, chickens, Highland cattle and goats. You’ll also find some more unusual animals such as reindeer, alpaca and chipmunks!

In the Animal Barn you can also stroke rabbits and guinea pigs and at the right time of year bottle feed the lambs. Swimming in the duck pond, there are lots of geese and ducks.

You can also feed the ducks, geese, pigs, cows, goats and sheep. Just pick up some feed when you enter the Farm (£1 per pot)

Throughout the day there are animal demonstrations* including pony grooming, milking demonstrations and egg collecting to help you learn more about the animals and how we care for them. Click here to see our daily activities.
