Bought 2 bags of animal feed and had trouble finding enough animals that we were allowed to feed it too. It all went to the goats more or less. The dodgers were strange in a muddy mess. We saw a few sad sheep. A naughty...More

We visited Matlock Farm Park in March just after all the snow had melted. Fortunately for us, the weather behaved itself in the main, and the only area we found to be overly muddy was the disabled parking area in the car park. We were...More

Yes. The grounds are mainly gravel based so depending on the wheelchair may be tricky to push in places, but that said the grounds are mainly flat so good for prams/wheelchairs etc. It's a lovely day out when sunny!
