Frequently Asked Questions


Can I bring my dog?

Unfortunately – with the exception of guide dogs – they cannot be allowed into the Farm Park itself due to the close contact with the animals.

Do I need to pre-book to visit?

No. In the world of online booking we have decided to keep it easy. If the kids are ready to run off lots of energy we are your go to place! You can book online if you wish, or you can pay once you get to the farm.

Is animal contact safe?

Children and animals can be unpredictable but our Animal Care and Hygiene is really important to us.

Can I visit the Farm if I am Pregnant?

It is advised that pregnant women do not come in to contact with the placenta of newly born lambs during the lambing season, as it is the placenta which carries the risk of Toxoplasmosis.

At Attell Farm Park our ewes give birth to their lambs out in the field and are only brought in to the animal barn when completely dry, therefore it is safe to visit the farm while you are pregnant.

How do you help visitors in wheelchairs or disabled visitors?

Our Welcome All training gives you a great personal service. We are designed with ramps, wide doors, and pride ourselves on helping you get the most out of your day. We're happy to help as much or as little as you like.

Can we Feed the Animals?

We have a full daily timetable of Animal Events and Demonstrations for you to enjoy. The timetable includes lots of opportunities to feed our animals, but please do not feed them outside of these set demonstration times. Our animals have a carefully balanced diet and it’s not good for them to ‘snack’ in between meals.

Please remember that Human food is not suitable for them.

Can I bring a picnic?

Yes! We have a range of picnic tables in the farm park, with little ones for the children too!
