Remember to bring clipboards/pencils if you are going to use them.
Do you have Trailer rides?
Currently Trailer Rides are suspended.
However bubbles and school groups can pre-book, they incur an additional fee and availability is limited. If you have booked a trailer ride, the time of your ride(s) will be on your itinerary. The trailer leaves from the main paddock. There is a maximum capacity of 30 adults/children per trip.
Children must be supervised on the trailer ride.
Sorry - wheelchairs cannot be taken on the trailer ride.
Trailer rides can still take place in the rain…if you are game so are we!

What if it rains?
We are an outdoor site so you should come prepared for wet weather. You'll need wellies!
We allocate each group a section of the barn with picnic tables. Lunches/bags (no valuables) can be left here, and you can use the tables for lunch if the weather is wet. These areas are still open to the general public and will be shared with other groups.
Do we need special clothing?
Clothing should be appropriate for a day out on a farm – sensible footwear, a waterproof in case it rains plus sunscreen and sunhats in summer. Don't forget your wellies if it is wet.
Is there a restaurant on site?
We have a restaurant but at the moment this remains closed.
We now have a takeaway option from the Patio that you can grab and take to the rest of site.
We also have hot food available from the Cabin and Trailer including paninis at the Cabin.
Is there good disabled access?
Yes. Disabled minibuses can use the disabled parking bays outside the Admissions gate/shop.
We have disabled toilets.
Wheelchair access around the main farmyard is good but some paths in the woods can be difficult to negotiate with a wheelchair.
Unfortunately we cannot take wheelchairs on the trailer ride.
Is there a gift shop?
Currently the gift shop remains closed.
Goody Bags (priced from £2 upwards) can be ordered before your visit and then collected from the shop at the end of the day.
