The farmyard at Chatsworth has been a favourite day out for children of all ages since 1973.
What child doesn’t love to meet ponies and lambs, take a trailer ride, and then swing, climb and splash around in the great outdoors?
Daily sessions include -Animal Handling, Milking Demonstrations, Bird hide, and crafting. We also offer animal feeding now for a small fee.
So, if your young ones like to meet animals, make new friends, try new things and play all day, they are going to love the Chatsworth farmyard and playground. There are also special activities during Easter, Halloween and Christmas.
Grown-ups can have a great time too, so you can enjoy refreshments in the café or browse the shop.
