Winter Farm Trail – CLOSED

It’s with heavy hearts that, inline with government guidelines dating the 4th of Jan 2021, we have to announce the closure of our Winter Trail. We will be back up and running as soon as the national lockdown is over and hope to see you all at the farm when that happens.

We’d like to take a moment to thank you all for your ongoing support and our team who work tirelessly to provide the best experience possible for our visitors. We had hoped that 2021 would get off to a better start than how 2020 ended for us and we’re all very saddened that isn’t the case. Fingers crossed that it only gets better from here.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.

From Monday 28th December opening 9.30am

Need a break from being cooped up inside? Then join our Winter Farm Trail, open from Monday 28th December – Thursday 31st December, closed New Year’s Day and then every weekend throughout the winter months (weather permitting).

The best place to enjoy time outside with the family this winter!

Can’t see tickets for the dates you want??! – We are probably waiting for the weather gods to play ball! Keep an eye on social media as we will post there when we release more.

Worried about changing tiers affecting your booking? The current guidance is that we can stay open in all current tiers including tier 4.

Take a mini adventure around the farm, visiting our friendly animals along the way as you learn about the local wildlife and their hibernation habits.

Activities include:

  • Bird hideout
  • Hedgehog village
  • Bat clubhouse
  • Bug hotel
  • Dormouse nest
  • Fire pit

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, we’ve made some changes to all of our events in 2020 in order to keep everyone as safe as possible.

  • We are using an online booking system to control the number of people at the farm
  • We’re limiting the amount of people per session
  • There are both handwash and hand sanitizer station throughout the trail
  • Social distancing in line with current guidelines will be required at all times

The trail is just £5 per child (walking to 18 years) and £3 per adult. This includes entrance to the farm, a map and activity sheet. After you’ve completed the trail and met all our lovely animals, all children receive a free hot chocolate/milk as well as marshmallows to toast on the fire! A cosy end to a winter’s outing.

As a guide, we think the trail is most suited to 2 to 10 year olds and should take around an hour to complete, the younger the children, the longer the trail takes. Please be aware that the trail is a little uneven under foot so it’s not suitable for wheelchair users or city dwelling push chairs; all-terrain buggies should be fine.

Refunds and ticket changes

We operate a strict no refunds policy regardless of cancellation reason. However, due to the current climate we have reviewed our policy as follows:

Although we are confident that we can safely open our doors every day, we appreciate that there are aspects of this event that are out of our control.

Should attending the event be hindered by the following:

1) Our cancellation due to inclement weather

2) Changes in government guidance/restrictions

3) Your cancellation due to having to “self-isolate”

In these instances, guests will have the option to transfer their booking to another day or receive a voucher code of equal value for use at future event (excludes Barn on the Farm, Fun Fair and Outdoor Cinema).

No dogs allowed unless they are guide/assistance dogs.
