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!
