Peak District Activities - Matlock Farm Park - Matlock

    Matlock Farm Park is a family friendly open farm providing a great day out for all the family. The park has a wide selection of animals to see including llamas, meerkats, goats, chickens, ducks, alpacas, peacocks and red deer to name but a few.

    The pet rabbits are always a favourite with the children as is the opportunity to feed the young lambs (seasonable).  Children will learn about the countryside, experience the many joys of the farm and have tremendous fun as they do so.

    There are specially designed playgrounds and even a go-kart track for the kids, adults have plenty of places to relax too should they wish.

    Special events are held throughout the year, please visit the website for details.
    Group party bookings and children’s birthday parties are also catered for; please see the booking page for details.

    OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK 10am – 4:30pm. The park will be closed Christmas Day and several other days throughout the winter months; please check the website before you travel.
