Playtime for the MeerKats

About

Now open! You've been so patient through these difficult times and we are thrilled we are able to share this FANTASTIC news! Thank you to Visit England for awarding us the COVID-19 Industry standard acknowledging that we are following government and industry guidelines to incorporate important procedures at the farm park, which promote social distancing and maintain cleanliness.

Having reviewed our capacity levels and in carrying out thorough Risk Assessments, visitors will be able to arrive on the day and pay on entry.

For further information, please check our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/matlockfarmpark/. We (and our animals!) can't wait to see you again and we thank you so much for all of your amazing support.

Come on down to Matlock farm Park, the ideal place for families to visit to enjoy the fresh air of the countryside combined with fun interactive experiences with a wide range of friendly animals.

Meet deer, sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, ducks and donkeys, or the more unusual meerkats, wallabies, alpaca, llama and rhea. There are lots of animals to see and feed, as well as smaller, cuddly animals to pet in the barn. Bottle feeding of lambs (Spring to mid-Summer) is always a favourite with the children.

Indoor and outdoor Special event days are held throughout the year and children's birthday parties are also catered for, please contact us for details.

Two Dales Riding School and Trekking Centre is part of Matlock Farm Park and offers qualified riding lessons as well as pony trekking. Booking for this is essential. For the little ones, short pony rides are available at weekends and during school holidays with no need to book.
