Attraction Information

You might recognise Jimmy Doherty’s farm from the BBC documentary.

This rare breed's farm is home to ponies, donkeys, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, sheep, goats, geese, ducks, cows, pigs and much more. Visitors can feed all the animals using the bags of food available and get even closer with special animal encounters every weekend and during the school holidays.

Over in the butterfly house see beautiful and colourful tropical butterflies gracefully flutter by you and then take the family outside to enjoy the woodland walk before heading to the wooden playground. The bouncy pillow, giant sandpit, climbing pyramids, bouncy animals, play vehicles, sports challenge and hobbit house will all be huge hits, leaving you with sleepy, satisfied children at the end of a great family day out.

A great mix of adventure play, the great outdoors and lots of animals!
