Came when the weather was lovely.. we brought my nephew.. he really enjoyed it, especially the play houses, sandpits and slides.. I think he preferred them over all the different animals lol...we thought it was a little over priced for adults but it was a nice day out 🐑 It was nice that we got to feed the sheep too!!

I don't care how old you are you can never tire of petting animals on a farm, had a lovely gentle stroll around, bit muddy as expected after a lot of rain but nevertheless what would you expect on a farm! Lovely little cafe for a drink. Great for children.

Visited with our 4 year old and one year old. First impressions were good, friendly and clean. The owners are obviously trying to get people to visit as they were really trying to engage and do something for everyone (I noticed an offer every Thursday for parents and toddlers). My 4 year old and I both got to feed lambs,... More

After almost a four hour stay both the adults and children both had so much to do! Plenty to see, pet and feed. Very friendly staff and reasonably priced snacks/gifts, all in all wonderful and we WILL return :-)

Thanks for letting my little nephew sit on a horse, really really made his day, and ours. To the moaning Minnie's out there, No, it is not expensive, this farm is not subsidized, happy to pay the asking... More

not a very big farm- but it kept us occupied for 4 hours. The children still did not want to leave. The staff are brilliant- friendly and chatty. Its quite expensive to get in- but they do have many outgoings. The young lad who got the pets out for our grandchildren to cuddle was wonderful as were the staff in... More

Thank you to all of you who have taken to time to post reviews of Matlock Farm Park. We have noticed with the reviews, that there are two issues that are consistently mentioned, firstly the plastic play area near the entrance to the farm park being old and tatty, and secondly that it is felt the park is not big...
