Green Dragon Rare Breeds Farm & Eco Centre

About

Located in beautiful open countryside where there's plenty of space for families to explore.

The farm is laid out to paddocks for our rare breed farm animals and includes our Animal Barn and Pets’ Corner where visitors can meet the animals at close quarters. As well as the farm trail, there’s a nature trail with a wildlife reserve coming soon. Our outdoor play area is ideal for children to let off steam and, for all weather year-round play, we have two barns, including soft play.
There's freshly made, seasonal food in two cafes that's supplied by local producers and from our own walled garden and orchard. The Eco Centre cafe and shop are on the ground floor of our lovely timber-framed building, whilst on the first floor with stunning views is our purpose-built conference/party room available for hire.
Our Barn Cafe provides meals and snacks for young families and provides the catering for our popular children’s birthday parties. With the facilities available in the Eco Centre and on the farm, Green Dragon also makes an ideal venue for corporate training or team building, a group tour or school trip.
