Parents are advised that children remain the responsibility of their carers at all times even when in the children’s area, please do not leave them unattended at any time and to be aware that it is a working farm. We suggest parents write their mobile phone number on the inside of their children’s wristbands just in case you become separated. There will be plenty of activities to keep the children entertained!
Pushchairs also remain your responsibility at all times.

On the day you are welcome to bring along drinks and a picnic. Or enjoy food and drink from our variety of on-site vendors and bars, as well as Solley’s ice cream!

However, you must not bring any glass bottles/glasses or sharp knives or BBQ’s for your picnics. There will be bag searching taking place at the entrance to ensure compliancy of our event plan and if such items are found, you will be asked to take them back to your car.

You are welcome to bring folding chairs and picnic blankets but please be advised no tables are allowed unless you have a pre booked gazebo.
