Attraction Information

Tam O’Shanter Urban Farm is based in the grounds of the historic thatched cottage Tam O’Shanter used.

Visitors are welcome to meet a variety of animals and learn all about nature conservation and the local environment. The animals are well looked after in small paddocks and regularly rotated to prevent over-grazing. Come and meet pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, geese, rabbits, turkey, cattle, ponies, guinea fowl and more.

Throughout the year there are events and seasonal activities, as well as announcements of any new arrivals to the farm. Children can get to know the animals and all about how a farm works as they get close to new and old farm favourites through the activity sheets, which are available to download and educational visits on offer.

Learn about farm life!

Great free day out Amazing!!! 5 out of 5 stars

If your looking for a free day out that's interesting with the kids, then this farm is a definite MUST. There is lots of things to do and see. Kids loved all the animals. Really easy to get to as well, think we've just found a little gem that we will definitely be going back to.


Great fun 4 out of 5 stars

I've been here on sunny days and rainy days. My toddler loves it here. Not the biggest selection of animals but it's all run on volunteers and contributions. They have old tractors for the kids to sit and play on. A courtyard and picnic area as well as a cafe that serves hot food. You can buy food to feed the animals and it doesn't cost too much. I recommend going.
