Monk Park Farm Visitor centre is one of ‘Yorkshire’s best places to visit.’

Situated in the heart of Herriot country, on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, this children’s farm has lots to offer families. There are indoor and outdoor feeding areas that’ll get you close up to the animals, including lambs, sheep, ponies, pigs, cattle, deer, hens, rabbits, guinea pigs, llamas, alpacas, wallabies and much more.

The adventure playground and indoor straw play barn are great places to blow off some steam, or children can race their friends around the pedal car arena. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the farm on a barrel ride or get everyone together to walk the nature trail and spot local wildlife in and around the lake.

Lots of animals to meet and feed!
