Matlock Farm Park is open all year round and they hope to give you a wonderful visit to the fresh air and tranquillity of the countryside.
Fun with the animals
As you wander around the Farm Park you see alpaca, goats, highland cattle, llamas, ponies, sheep to name just a few. If you arrive at the right time you’ll likely see newborns too! Look out for the Meerkats as they scamper around and how about an encounter with a Wallaby?
Arrive at the weekend or school holiday and they’ll be pony rides available for the kids.
If you pre-book you can also arrange for horse-riding lessons or if you have a little experience go trekking around the beautiful landscape in the surrounding area.
Adults can take a little time out with a coffee and a snack whilst the children enjoy playing safely around you in the Rainforest Playbarn. The play barn is a jungle-themed climbing from complete with slides and scramble nets.
For the toddlers, there’s an underwater-themed soft play area with an interactive eye-spy panel and soft building blocks.
More fun for the kids at the Tot’s area, which is an outdoor play area designed for younger children. A wooden pirate ship, slides and climbing areas to get that imagination going. With a large sandpit, Wendy house and sit-on orignal tractor, kids can’t help but have fun.
Further to this, there is the Adventure Playground with balancing beams and rope bridges, a ladder and big slide. From here the kids can still be in full view of the animals whilst they play. Designed for kids of 3 years.
How about trying a Go-Kart. Adults can sit on the cart whilst they assist their kids or supervise older kids to ride them on their own.
