Please be aware that there are increased safety measures in the farmyard and playground including the temporary suspension of the tractor trailer tours and animal handling sessions, the temporary closure of the indoor picnic room and no food or drink in the playground.
There are three two-hour sessions each day beginning at 10am, 12.30pm and 3pm. There is also no pass out/re-entry for the farmyard. Once visitors have left the farmyard, they will not be able to return without a new booking.
Please note that some areas of the farmyard are enclosed, and therefore a face covering is required in order to enter them, unless exempt.

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. You can print this out and bring it with you on the day.
