(or from STEP 3 of the Government Roadmap)

The Indoor Play barn and Small Animal Village are now open.

To ensure a safe and enjoyable visit for all, visitors will be allocated a playbarn session time upon arrival. This will enable us to control visitor numbers and allow for regular cleaning between sessions. Session times in the playbarn are 45 minutes long. During the week in term time when visitor numbers are reduced, you may not be asked to book in a session time.

Indoor seating is now available in both the Tearooms and within the main barn by the Coffee Shop.

Visitors must not meet in groups of more than 6 people or 2 households when indoors.

We regret that Pig Racing and Pony Rides will still not be able to operate for the time being.

As part of our commitment to you, we will;

  • Ensure you have a safe and well organised visit.
  • Limit the number of tickets available each day to ensure social distancing can be adhered to. Our new online booking system allows us to carefully control site capacity. Pre booking is essential.
  • Maintain all our facilities to the standards of cleanliness throughout your visit. Our dedicated ‘clean team’ will be following our enhanced cleaning schedules and focus on frequently touched surfaces.
  • Provide additional hand sanitiser stations around the farm that can be used during your visit in addition to regular handwashing.
  • Efficiently manage the toilets and ensure that they are regularly cleaned.
  • Serve visitors from behind screens to avoid face to face contact.
  • Ensure our team wear masks in all indoor areas.
  • Disinfect our play areas with medical grade viricidal disinfectant every day.
  • Keep certain activities closed which cannot safely be used at this time.
  • Proudly display our ‘Good To Go’ badge. This is given to businesses adhering to Government guidelines demonstrating that we have excellent processes in place and as a business we’re good to go!

What you can do for us:

  • Only visit the farm if you are feeling well. Please do not visit the farm if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Ensure you do not mix with other households indoors and adhere to the Rule of 6 (or maximum of 2 households) when outdoors.
  • Adhere to our site guidelines and follow the safety signage and one-way systems in place. They are there to keep you and our team safe.
  • Respect each other and always maintain a safe distance from others.
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds with soap and warm water.
  • Wear a face covering in all indoor areas. This includes the main barn, toilet, Animal Discovery Barn, Gift Shop and when ordering food and drink.
  • Pre book your tickets. Pre-booking is now essential.
  • Pay using card and contactless where possible please.
  • Have a super day out with your families (and recommend us to all your friends!)
