National Forest Adventure Farm


A day of adventure awaits at the National Forest Adventure Farm! You can meet and feed the animals, explore the outdoor Funfield and have fun in the huge indoor play area.

Meet a host of farm animals including pigs, sheep, cows and goats. In the spring you can also bottle feed our lambs. You can pet a rabbit or guinea pig and see our more unusual animals such as alpaca, reindeer and chinchilla. We also have daily animal activities including pony grooming, milking demonstrations and egg collecting.

The huge Funfield features a range of have-a go-activities including pedal go-karts, assault course, musical maze, jumping pillows, the Jurassic Canyon fossil dig and sand play area and the JCB Big Dig Zone with ride-on JCBs, sand pit and traversing wall. Also take a tractor and trailer ride around the farm and look out for the scarecrows?

(Temporarily closed) The indoor playbarn features a giant soft play area with 3 drop slides. There’s an under 5’s area with a ball pit and the Brickwork multi-level construction zone.

In the summer, the Farm is home to a huge maize maze. So take on the challenge of navigating miles of pathways, bridges and viewing towers.

Enjoy delicious hot and cold food and drink from one of our outlets or bring a picnic and eat in our outdoor and undercover picnic areas.
