Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web
Matlock Farm Park is a family friendly open farm set in a beautiful and tranquil location.

The park has a large selection of animals including llamas, goats, meerkats, turkeys, peacocks, deer, cattle, wallabies, ducks, alpacas and sheep to name but a few.

The pet rabbits are always a favorite with the children along with the opportunity to help feed the young lambs (seasonable). Children will learn about the countryside and have fun alone the way.

Children's parties are catered for and horse riding lessons and pony trekking is also available by advanced booking. There are several play areas too for the kids to let off steam!

There is also a lovely licensed cafe serving homemade meals and snacks.

  • Took my 4yr old daughter for her first ever riding lesson.I know I was more nerves than her....she loved it! A massive thank you to Amber and the girl's(sorry I didn't get their names.)who totally looked after her and made sure that she was not only safe,but that she had fun and also learnt about riding...we now have a lovely picture of 'Soda' that she has drawn.Brilliant experience and will not be her last.Thank you again girl's.
  • Took our grandson for a visit, and we all had a great day out. Loved looking at, and feeding the animals, even the greedy kids that kept escaping to have first dibs at the grub.
  • Enjoyed the park, my grandchildren realy enjoyed it BUT must comment about the bugs and bones, there was about 7 things to look at in plastic boxes and £2.00 to hold each one. Disgusting.Hope they get that sorted.
  • First visited Matlock Farm 5 years ago and it was good then, just visited again in August 2015 and its now gone from good to great. There are lots of animals to see which you can hold and feed and there are now interactive experiences too. This is all complimented with the excellent climbing frames, cafe and shop and it’s enough to keep your little ones entertained for hours. Thank you to all at Matlock Farm for your hard work and dedication.
  • Lots of animals and a bouncy castle. Not very busy in the winter. Pretty good value.
