Details

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 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.

Throughout the day there are animal demonstrations to help you learn more about the animals and how we care for them.

Daily animal demonstrations include:-

Lamb feeding (Spring & Summer)
Egg collecting
Milking Demonstration
Pony Grooming
Pig Grand National (Summer)
