The car park is clearly marked on the right hand side of the road to the farm entrance. Any overflow parking will be clearly defined during busier months.

Opening Hours

Our open hours vary according to the seasons, and are clearly advertised on our homepage, google, and social media pages. As we are a working farm, and undertake much of our work outside of customer opening hours, for safety and privacy reasons, we request that people do not enter the farmyard unless we are open.

What's on Display?

Farm life will be visible to you when you visit - calves on view in the farm yard as well as the main milking herd depending upon the time of day/year you visit. During the grazing season, we bring the cows across the road from nearby fields for afternoon milking, at 1530 each day.


We kindly request that you do not climb on any gates or feed the animals. But take as many photos as you want, they're very photogenic!

We are a family of dog-lovers - but since there are animals here on the farm we prefer there to be as few visiting animals as possible for biosecurity; well behaved dogs are allowed on a lead. We ask them not to get close to the farm animals because of the risk of disease and infection. All waste is the owner's responsibility.
