Attraction Information

In the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, within 10 acres of greenery, is Hesketh Farm Park.

This working farm has over 1,000 cattle, sheep and pigs. The large, heated undercover barn is a cosy place to retreat to if the weather turns bad where you can feed and stroke the animals without getting wet or cold! Back outside is a giant sandpit to dig for treasure in and a straw maze to get lost in!

Listen out for the whistle of the steam train chugging along at the bottom of the valley as you look out over the Yorkshire hills, the Embsay and Bolton Abbey. Forgot to pack a picnic? No problem, grab a homemade snack from the small café and then test your skills on the outdoor agility course!

An idyllic farm with lots of indoor and outdoor fun!
