Visited Matlock Farm Park with my husband and toddler. It was a lovely place with lots of friendly animals for us to feed. Play areas were good too.

My main issue is the cleanliness of the indoor animals shed and the animals themselves,this... More

Thank you for this constructive review. You must have visited us around June when we were having the new Tots Area built. Since then we have considerably expanded the park and built several new animal shelters. The small animal barn is tired and it's on the list to renovate next year and hopefully if we can afford it, we will... More

Spent over 4 hours, children fed the meerkats, calves and held rabbits and guinea pigs. As well as feeding the goats ,sheep, and horses with the feed purchased for £1. Loads of picnic benches and coffee good from cafe. We found the staff friendly . Will certainly go again.

He enjoys looking after all our animals, who have come to know him well. There is... More

Lovely cafe offering mouth watering treats & the little ones can even dress their own scare-crow! Beautiful majestic reindeer to feed right down to baby goats. A cheeky... More

The eldest 2 also had a pony ride which they really enjoyed. There's a nice tots play area with sand pit which they all had fun in ! Further... More
