Accessibility

Our team's approach is to help you as much, or a little, as you require.


We want to create lasting memories for everyone who visits Attwell Farm Park, whatever their requirements. We are a rural destination, which can present some challenges when it comes to accessibility, but we strive to offer an inclusive experience for everybody.

The farm is in a rural location and some parts of the farm include slopes and uneven surfaces. Our indoor facility surfaces are a mixture of Polished concrete & standard concrete. Our outdoor farm surfaces include tarmac, concrete, Rolled Cotswolds stone and grass. Our outdoor play facilities have a Rubber chipping surface to keep everyone safe.

HEALTH & SAFETY GUIDANCE


Have a safe & fun time at attwell farm park.

KEEPING CLEAN


Remember to wash your hands after you touch the animals, pens & paddocks. especially before eating and drinking.

Sanitising gels are NOT adequate cleaning alone and are only an additional measure to thorough hand washing with warm water and soap.

It is your decision whether a child can touch or feed the animals. This especially needs to be considered for children who put things in their mouths or have a weak immune system.

Attwell Farm Park operates a PARENTAL SUPERVISION policy at all times. It is the Parent or Guardians responsibility to supervise the washing of children’s hands.

PREGNANT LADIES


Pregnant women should avoid contact with ewes (Female Sheep) and nanny Goats (Female Goats) and their offspring. Pregnant women who come into close contact with these may risk their own health and that of their unborn child, from infections that can occur in some of the above. Consult a member of staff for more information.

FIRST AID


First aid kits can be located in the first aid room & ticket office. These can be located on the farm park map. Alert a member of staff if a trained first aider is required.

FIRE SAFETY


In the event of a fire, raise the alarm and make your way to the fire assembly points located in the car park & picnic area. (Locations can be found on your farm park map)

ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR


Please be aware that kicking, biting, butting, spitting, pecking, pooping, and urinating are all part of normal animal behaviour. Be aware of your surroundings, although all our animals are lovely and friendly, we cannot predict natural animal behaviour.

We hope you have an amazing visit to our family run farm.
