Welcome to
Monk Park Farm

Ey up… we’re open 10:00 – 17:00 7 days a week!

On Weekends & during School Holidays, please pre-book your tickets before arriving.

NEW FOR 2022…
• 2 Gigantic Air Bouncers
• Kids Mini Train Ride
• Extended Petting Barn
• Revamped Pond & Play Area – Opening Soon
• Pram & Wheelchair Friendly Paths

In February 2021, Monk Park Farm was bought by new owners and a comprehensive schedule of improvements and investment began. Before re-opening in April, the entrance, toilets and cafe were refurbished, the outdoor play area was improved and a huge new sandpit added. During the year we added electric karts and held a fantastic Halloween Spectacular.

We hope you’ll like what we’ve done so far, and there’s more to come – for 2022 we have extended the Petting Barn, installed a new Kids Mini Train Ride, two gigantic Air Bouncers, refurbished the picnic and play area near the pond and we’ve been working hard to make our paths more pram and wheelchair friendly.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

You can meet so many of our favourites whether you’re stroking the guinea pigs and rabbits, feeding the lambs or petting the baby goats (subject to availability and restrictions).

You can also get up close with the wallabies, deer and alpacas as you take a barrel ride through their fields!

We have a 1 mile walk around the farm with four feed stations (animal feed is available from the shop).

Been putting off going for months due to preconceptions of a muddy stinking working farm , wow i was wrong . Ample parking Beautiful location Well thought out layout Rides and play areas for kids of all ages Cafe and ice cream shops Well kept tidy grounds And most importantly..healthy happy animals My 3 year old enjoyed this place much more than Yorkshire wildlife park which was his previous no1 ... and tbh i enjoyed it too. Already planning on a return visit this friday.

We visited here last Saturday with friends and little ones and honeslty I could not fault it. Lots to do with the kids, the staff were really friendly and it was reasonably priced in my opinion. The play areas were fantastic and it was very clean. Will definitely be going back!
