Early Closing Announcement

We're now able to confirm that the Farm Park will be closing slightly earlier this year so that we can begin work. We will therefore be closing on Sunday 30th October and re-opening again on Saturday 11th February 2017, in time for the start of our lambing season. Further news will be shared on the website and by email in the coming weeks - to be amongst the first to know, make sure you're signed up to our e-newsletters. It's going to be very strange for us to see an empty Park this winter, but we think the improvements...
