Animal petting can be enjoyed every weekend and throughout the week during school holidays. We have a board up at the entrance to our Farm Park to tell you about weekend petting timings. They are always on the hour at 11am, 12pm, 1pm & 2pm.
The Butterfly House is Jimmy’s passion project and childhood interest. It is home to an incredible array of beautiful tropical butterflies, flying freely amongst the exotic plants and flowers. You may even spot Tropical fish in the pool! Immerse yourself in this jungle-like environment and watch as these amazing insects fly freely between the exotic array of flora and fauna.
We have several play areas for little folk including the wooden playground, bouncy pillow, giant sandpit, climbing pyramids, bouncy animals, play vehicles, sports challenge & Hobbit House!
Sadly, due to public tampering, the zip wire has been damaged beyond repair. We will be building something new in it’s place soon though!
Our woodland has more now than ever!
Not only is it the perfect place to spot many native plants and animals. If you are extremely lucky you may even see the rare Dormouse or Stagbeetles. In the spring, the bluebells offer a dazzling spectacle of colour and scent. Brand new additions to the woodland include the Coffee Cabin and Den Building areas, as well as our thrilling new Time Walk where you can meet all the creatures that used to roam the woodlands thousands of years ago.

Lovely friend of the farm Dolly is on hand during most school holidays and some weekends in the summer at one of our ponds to help children catch a fish. Dolly has been with us at the farm from the beginning and many of you may remember him from the Jimmy’s Farm BBC TV series’. Please check the boards at the Farm Park entrance to see if Dolly is in!
Jimmy’s Farm is first and foremost, a working farm. Take a stroll over to the Hobbit House to catch a glimpse of our working farm, in which you will find many rare breed pigs and cows.
Dogs are welcome but please keep them on a lead and bring a poop-scoop. Dogs are not allowed in the restaurant but there is seating outside and our staff will provide water for your thirsty friends.
Following the outbreak of Avian influenza (bird flu) throughout Europe, DEFRA have implemented a prevention protocol in the UK.
As a result, to help protect our birds and visitors, we have taken necessary actions at the farm.
Until further notice the bird stock will not be on view to the public and our bird encounters will not be running,
Other actions have been put in place to protect all of the bird species which we care for.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
The Butterfly House OPEN!!
