Farm & Wildlife Park2019-01-03T11:40:15+00:00


Jimmy’s Farm and Wildlife Park is so much more than you would expect.  Fun for all the family with there being something for everyone!

For the adventurous explore our wonder wood, where kids both big and small can build their own unique den. Energetic youngsters can take a bounce on the bouncy pillow or test their ability and nerve on the adventure play areas.

The curious should check out the butterfly house and learn about the life of our butterflies and insects. Feeling brave, head to our tropical house, where you can meet some of our cold blooded friends as well as our friendly birds.

For a more relaxed day wander through the woodland walk and take a moment to sit and enjoy the nature around you at the coffee cabin.

Maybe you want to walk with the animals?  Take our outback safari where you can walk amongst our emu, wallabies and friends.

So what are you waiting for?  Come and visit us today!

Get up close to some of the animals we have on the day animal encounters where you can stroke a guinea pig, feed a donkey or even hold one of our more unusual residents such as a snake or millipede!

All year round fun

We are open all year, apart from Christmas Day, and so whatever the season there is plenty to keep you occupied. Just remember to bring some wellies on damp days… so much better for jumping in the puddles!

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.

Our Close Encounters are the perfect gift for animal enthusiasts, making for a unique, educational and truly memorable experience.

Join our park keepers inside one of the animal’s enclosures for some one-on-one time.  Get the chance to get up close and personal with the animal, participate in feeding, enrichment and maybe even do some training!

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 pond!  Immerse yourself in this jungle-like environment and watch as these amazing insects fly freely between the exotic array of flora and fauna.

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.

We have several play areas for little folk including the wooden playground, bouncy pillow, giant sandpit, climbing pyramids, bouncy animals, play vehicles & Hobbit House!
