Membership is valid for entry on all open days for 12 months from when you join; we’re open every day from mid-March until early January, and the farmyard and adventure playground are also open during February half-term. Please note the farmyard and adventure playground are closed during the country fair, but there will be a farmyard stand at this event.
  2. Reserving Friends tickets in advance is essential during Christmas, early November to the beginning of January and recommended for all your visits.

  5. Membership cards are not transferable.
  6. Unfortunately, we cannot refund complimentary tickets, should the event(s) be completely or partially cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control.
