Matlock Farm Park

good for children
Set in the fresh air and tranquillity of the countryside, Matlock Farm Park is the ideal family day out. With a variety of animals, from exotics such as meerkats and wallabies, to the more familiar sheep, goats, and donkeys, there are plenty of creatures to interact with and feed. There are daily events to join in with including ferret racing, meerkat talks, and small animal handling where you and your little ones can cuddle rabbits and guinea pigs. The on-site cafe serves hot food and drinks and there are playgrounds to explore and go-karts to race.

If its horses youre interested in, the riding school offers lessons in the riding arena, or treks out into the nearby forest (please book in advance). Short pony rides are also available at weekends and in the school holidays. Please visit our website for details and special events test
