All groups are able to have their own room where they can enjoy their packed lunches, or, if they wish, they can use the dining area in the play barn.

Groups also have full access to our cafe facilities for food and drinks bought on the farm.

Groups have several extras available:

  • Tickets for the hourly train rides are at a special reduced rate – no need to book
  • Educational guided tours of the farm are available (booked by prior arrangement)
  • Children can take part in supervised animal feeding – provided that appropriate young animals are available on the farm.

The farm’s car park has areas available for full sized coaches, mini buses and cars and if you have any special access requirements please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or email.

Don’t forget – Windmill Animal Farm is not just a fair weather friend – our large play barn and all the other indoor facilities make it a great venue in all kinds of weather.

One of the five handwashing stations
We have five Handwashing Stations at convenient locations around the farm.

If you have been feeding, or just stroking the animals please wash your hands – especially if you are going to have something to eat yourself.

We offer discounted prices to parties from schools, playgroups and clubs. Please contact us by telephone on 01704 892282 or by email for more information.
