Make Friends on our Farm
Every day whatever the weather, there is lots of opportunity to make friends with the animals on our farm, and when you book online you’ll save £2 per person compared with our ‘on the door price’.
Learn, laugh and love every moment!
On the way in you’ll meet our furry friends, our Rabbits live outside and LOVE the attention they get from our visitors, next door to them you’ll find our Guineapigs.
As you cross the bridge, you’ll see to our Giant Sand Play area.
A visit to our farm would not be complete without a stop off to visit the mob at Meerkat Manor. Peer over the fence or through the glass, and watch as these curious creatures scratch and play in the sand. Watch long enough and you’re bound to see one of them climb up on to their look out and peer straight back at you.
Inside our Animal Barn you’ll find different animals at different times of the year. Winter is when the barn is most full, whilst we rest the paddocks and at the same time keep our animals warm and dry. Our Horses and Donkeys enjoy outside space and exercise every day.
During February, March and even April, our Ewe ‘Maternity Ward’ will be set up, and inside will be expectant mothers and their young lambs.
When Spring arrives and the weather is milder we start to move our animals into their paddocks on our Animal Trail. Our Alpaca especially love this time of year when the days last longer and the sun shines for longer!
Visit our Exotic Room (inside our Animal Barn) and watch as our Iggy our Iguana scales his live planted accommodation, jumping from branch to branch hunting for food. Admire the bright colours of Pascal our Panther Chameleon as he basks on a leafy branch under the warmth of his lamp, and count the Paddy Tree Frogs that live alongside Nala our Royal Python.
We have snakes, snails, lizards, skinks and spiders in our Exotic Room, inside ‘bio-active’ set ups, living in harmony with little bugs known as the ‘clean up crew’, just like they would in nature.
All year round on our Animal Trail you will find Samba and Jazz our Reindeer, and Angel our Sika Deer, these animals love being outside in all weathers, and snuggle safely up in their Field Shelters at night. Our Emu, Rhea and Chickens also reside on the trail year round.

Falconry And Birds Of Prey
We have Hawks, Owls, Falcons and even a Bald Eagle.
All our birds are either in our flying team, or in training to join our flying team, so they get exercised and flown every single day of the week.
Falconry Flying Demonstrations are twice a day every day. Flying Shows take place at 11.30am and 1pm and the displays are totally different e.g. in the morning we usually have an ‘Owl Show’ that showcases the flying skills of 2 different breeds of owls. In the afternoon our flying shows will showcase the natural flying or hunting styles of a different birds (schedule is weather dependent as some birds might like it windy, others prefer more still weather)
Head over and take your seat at the benches in our Flying Arena on days when we have flying displays.
In line with guidance for Zoos, we are working towards all our Birds of Prey being ‘free lofted’. Our Owls and some of our other birds will fly straight from their aviaries to take part in our flying shows. This does mean you won’t see them on our weathering lawns. For some of our hawks and our Eagle Monty – when the risk of Avian Influenza reduces and we are are able to, you may well see him sunbathing on our Weathering Lawns near our Falconry Centre.
