Matlock Farm Park
Matlock Farm Park is open all year round and hopes to give families a wonderful visit in the fresh air and tranquility of the countryside.
The park has a large selection of animals including llamas, goats, meerkats, turkeys, peacocks, deer, cattle, wallabies, ducks, alpacas and sheep to name but a few. The small animal barn is a firm favourite for children with the chance to cuddle rabbits, guinea pigs and chicks and the opportunity to help feed young lambs. Horse riding lessons and pony trekking is also available by advanced booking. Children can learn about the countryside and have fun along the way.
There is the opportunity to get involved with a meerkat feed, a wallaby walkabout or even a ferret race. Short pony rides are also available for the little ones at weekends and school holidays, with no need to book.
There is a great new indoor playcentre, The Rainforest, with slides, climbing areas and a designated soft play toddler area, with a relaxing viewing area to watch the children while you enjoy a coffee. Outdoor play is great too, with a super go-kart track and play areas. A licensed café is on site serving delicious homemade food.
The farm welcomes primary schools, pre-schools and a wide range of organisations with tailor made trips structured to groups current areas of study.
