What's On Today & Opening Times

There's so much to do at the Rare Breeds Centre - you'll need more than a day!

We're open from 10.00am until 5.30pm every day!

By planning your day, you can fit in as much fun as you can manage! If it's a rainy day, you can enjoy our 'Meet the Animals' sessions in the Children's Barn, be brave and have a look around Creepy Crawly World, see the lambs, and other animals, and don't forget our indoor Play Barns for soft play, and indoor toys. And there's also our Granary restaurant for a freshly made bite to eat. Don't forget to bring your wellies - we'll have plenty of muddy puddles to splash in!

If the sun has got his hat on, then you can do so much with your day - explore our 100 acre farm, (incuding the brass rubbing trails through the Rainbow Wood - can you find the Giants?) on to the Aerial Assault Course at the Mysterious Marsh, Big Red Trailer Rides, Tube Maze and Hill Fort. Oh, and of course all of our friendly animals. And don't miss the Pig Racing at weekends, bank holidays and school holidays through out the Summer months!

You can have a look at the map of our whole farm here.

Please note that we are a no smoking site - smoking is not permitted anywhere on the farm, including the front entrance and car park. Thanks for your cooperation.
