William and Rosie our beautiful horses are looking forward to seeing lots of visitors during the Summer holidays! We have horse rides available every day up to Monday 3rd September.  Rides are available between 1.30-3.00pm and cost £2.50 each.

Come and meet some of our small animals at the farm. Small Animal Petting sessions are available every day up to Monday 3rd September – they run every thirty minutes between 11.00am – 3.30pm (except 1.30pm) and costs £1.50 per person.  You can hold and pet a pygmy goat, rabbit, guinea pig, chick, duckling, and our lovely rats Derek and Bernard.

Both of these activities can sell out on very busy days, so please buy your tickets at the point of admission to avoid disappointment.
