About

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 . 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.

Please note, due to the close contact with our animals, we cannot allow dogs into the farm park. We can permit guide dogs, however.
