Family Fun at Matlock Farm Park Review: Things to do in Derbyshire, Matlock with kids
“We had a lovely day with my mum and two boys ( 5&4) at Matlock Farm Park. They had an offer on with reduced adult prices and 1 child free with every paying adult. So two adults, two children and two bags of feed for the animals was £13.
There are a number of animals there: sheep, goats, horses, meerkats, rabbits, guinea pigs, lamas, birds and cows, so lots of animals to see and feed in total. There are a number of different combing frames/ slides/ play equipment to go on as you make the circuit around the farm. They offer horse rides, too. There is a little shop, a cafe selling sandwiches, jackets and meals and separate children’s menu.
Included in the admission price is the new barn with a soft play and snack cafe. It was bigger than I thought and my boys loved it and adults can get around without too much squeezing!
There was a really nice soft play area for babies and small children. I have been here many times and on my own when the boys are younger and have always found it quite a relaxing day as my boys seem to love it here!”
Looks really fun, I love the option of all of the playgrounds plus the soft play, too. Thanks for sending in your review, Hayley 🙂
