Details

A family-friendly attraction with over 25 acres of undercover and outdoor play and adventure areas – Nature Trails; ‘Pirates’ Galleon; Play Fort; Go-karts. Take a goat or sheep for a walk; ride a donkey; feed our ducks and chickens; visit our heated small animal room; relax in the café or have a picnic.

A family-friendly attraction with indoor and outdoor play and adventure areas and a wide selection of animals and owls to visit. We take great pride in caring for our varied animals, most of whom have been rescued, or donated from owners who can no longer look after them. At Manor Farm they receive a ‘forever home’. Why not come and meet them? Give them a stroke; take a goat or sheep for a walk; ride a donkey; or feed our ducks and chickens! In our indoor, heated animal room, visit our rabbits, guinea pigs, reptiles, parrots and more! Don’t forget to visit our large collection of Owls from around the World – you may even be able to hold one! Play on our Pirate Ship or explore the Spooky Castle in our heated Play Barn, then follow the Nature Trail to the outside Fort Play Area, lake and woodlands. Finally, take a moment or two to relax in the Gallery Café or Old Barn Coffee Shop or enjoy a picnic.

Situated in acres of beautiful countryside on the Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire border, and only a few miles from the M1, we are the perfect family day out.

We host children’s Birthday Party packages; school and group trips; and ‘Cream Tea’ packages.
Adoption scheme – Why not adopt one of our owls, donkeys, goats, ponies…
