Matlock Farm Park

Matlock Farm Park aims to offer farmyard fun for all ages, all year round, in the fresh air and tranquillity of the countryside! They have a plethora of lovely animals to meet, feed and cuddle, an indoor play barn to have fun in, go-karts to ride around on, a shop to browse and a cosy café to visit. The riding school is also open all year round and offers lessons or hacking for all abilities as well as short pony rides.


At Matlock Farm Park we have some real characters! 

From farm animals such as sheep, goats, pigs and donkeys, to more exotic creatures such as wallabies, emus, rhea birds, and meerkats, all the animals are happy to make friends and will welcome you back time after time.

At set times you can help feed the meerkats, handle the small animals and meet the wallabies.
