It’s out with the lambs and in with the goat kids..

Now our lambs are bigger and the weather has improved, it’s time for them to go outside into the big wide world and make way for our goats to give birth in the barn. You may be lucky enough to see some our goats kids being born but don’t worry if not, our new born kids will be hanging around in the farm barn so you can watch them get up to more & more mischief as they grow.

You’re welcome to access our farm barn at any time during your visit, feed for the adult farm animals can be purchased online or on site for £1.50 per bag so you can handfeed them at any time. Remember to wash your hands afterwards at the provided stations.

Our 2024 lambing season has begun! We have welcomed lots of new little woolly faces over Feb half term week and have lots more due to arrive any time so you may get an extra special experience during your visit..

Some of our team went to the Farrer’s tea & coffee HQ in Kendal to refresh their coffee facts and up their barista skills..
This included machine settings and prep to get the perfect espresso shot, different milk foaming techniques needed for Cappuccinos & Lattes, the history of popular coffees and also lots of taste testing!

We look forward to serving you in our cafe soon, we have a wide variety of hot drinks available as well as iced teas/coffees, frappes and milkshakes. Decaf and milk alternatives are also available for all menu options.

Our Wild Flower Patch is here for the first time this summer, it is located next to the Mega Slide and you are welcome to come and have a wonder along side it, spot some wildlife, we would love to see your pictures! Enjoy!

Our staff took advantage of this Summer’s new activity, Water Wars, after a hot day at work!
Our water wars activity is based in our outdoor play area, next to the maize maze entrance. Each person gets 5 x water balloons included in their entry fee, extras can be bought if desired, £1.50 for x7 more balloons. Although you’ll dry off fast on a hot, sunny day, we’d advise bringing a towel and some spare clothes just in case.
