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. From deer, sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, ducks and donkeys, to 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 childrenThere are indoor and outdoor Special event days are held throughout the year and children's birthday parties are also catered for, please ring 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.
