“fantastic family day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2010

We hadnt heard of matlock farm park until looking at trip advisor, and thought we'd give it a go with our 5 year old daughter while on a short break staying in Rowsley in september. Matlock Farm Park was an absolute gem, a wonderful day out. The staff are friendly on arrival, the place is clean, its good value for money and the range of animals is fabulous. Everything from a majestic stag to an indoor section with degu's and birds and all sorts, the animals love being fed and are soooo friendly. theres pedal cars and a nice little playground too, everything for kids. The little cafe does great value sarnies and snacks, its just one a gem of a place.

“Outon the Farm!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2009

I took my children to Matlock Farm Park this week and I have to say what a hidden gem of a place it is. Its not your big tourist attraction, its more family run. I spoke to the manager there and you can tell he loves his job and he looks after all the animals so well. My children are 7yrs and 5yrs old which I would say is perfect. Any children under 12yrs will really enjoy this farm. I recommend it!

“Take the Kids!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2006

Take the kids to Matlock Farm Park. It's not expensive & there are many animals to see. It's a beautiful place. There is a little tea room where we sat outside and watched the kids play, it was very relaxing!
