Hand washing  

Hand washing stations are located at short intervals around the park. Antibacterial soap, hot running water and hand towels are provided at each station and using these is the safest, most method for keeping you and your family safe. Please encourage all members of your party to wash their hands thoroughly after any animal contact and especially before eating and drinking, even if no contact with the animals has been made. Antibacterial foams and gels are not recommended and are not effective as a substitute for soap and hot running water.



The whole park is accessible for buggies but please note that for fire safety reasons buggies are not permitted in the PlayBarn. We do have an undercover buggy park, which is a safe dry place to leave your buggy.


Bikes and scooters

For the safety of all staff, customers and animals, bikes and scooters are not permitted in the park. We have our own bikes, trikes and scooters for the children to ride in a specially secured area.

For the safety and comfort of our animals dogs are not permitted into the park. Registered assistance dogs are welcome.


Where to eat  

From a freshly brewed coffee and cake to a hearty meal, the PlayBarn café has it all. At weekends and during school holidays in the summer season the 'Munch Box' is also open and offers freshly cooked pizzas, crisps, snacks, hot and cold drinks and ice creams.
