About the farmyard
The farmyard at Chatsworth has been a favourite day out for children of all ages since 1973.
What child doesn’t love to meet ponies and lambs, take a trailer ride, and then swing, climb and splash around in the great outdoors?
So, if your young ones like to meet animals, make new friends, try new things and play all day, they are going to love our farmyard and playground. There are also special activities during Easter, Halloween and Christmas.
We want the grown-ups to have a great time too, so you can enjoy refreshments in the café or browse the shop.
The farmyard and playground also welcomes schools and education groups.
Take a more detailed look at a map of the farmyard (PDF, 846Kb). You can print this out and bring it with you on the day or pick up a farmyard leaflet at the information booth.
