Please note that the Farmyward will be closed during Country Fair, 2-4 September 2016

The farmyard at Chatsworth has been a favourite day out for children of all ages since 1973. After all, what child doesn’t love to meet ponies and lambs, take a trailer ride, then swing, climb and splash around the great outdoors? There’s so much to enjoy here all year round with special activities during Easter, Halloween and Christmas – see the calendar of events for details. So if your young farmers like to meet animals, make new friends, try new things and play all day, they are going to love our farmyard.

We want the grownups to have a great time too, so you can enjoy refreshments in the café or browse the shop. In fact, it’s great fun for everyone down at the farmyard.

The farmyard and adventure playground also welcome schools and education groups. Find out more >
