Fairytale Farm


Mixing classic fairy tales, animals and adventure play, children will love Fairytale Farm. With our exciting adventure playground, an enchanted walk with a surprise around every corner and a chance to meet our amazing animals, there is so much to see and do. It is a sensory and learning wonderland for all the family.

Race a rubber duck along our pump-powered waterway or see a family of mice going about their daily business in our beautifully crafted indoor model village. Where else can you meet mermaids, rabbits, sleeping beauty, alpacas, rheas, sea horses, ducks, chickens and magic?

And make some time for the Beanstalk Café, serving freshly ground coffee, locally baked cakes and delicious meals.

There are a whole host of new attractions at Fairytale Farm opening in 2022, with our biggest ever investment in new developments:

  • Open now: Explore our magical new indoor play area, Rapunzel's Kingdom, themed around a fairy tale forest, with castles, slides and fairy houses to visit, role playing and interactive features.
  • Open now: Climb on board our brand-new Combine Harvester, with two levels, multiplay activities and a slide, it is perfect for imaginary farm play!
  • Open now: Step inside our new Musical House. Operate the fairground organ or the brass band – everything is people-powered!
  • New for Summer 2022 is our brand-new dinosaur-themed area, Dino Valley, with a collection of life-sized (but very friendly) dinosaurs. 

Significant further investments have also gone into our animal area, including new enclosures, animal petting area and footpaths around all enclosures, so need for wellies anymore!

We are part of the independently audited Animal Attraction Assured certification scheme, operated by the National Farm Attractions Network in conjunction with Kiwa Agri Food.
