This year CHRISTMAS at Miller's Ark Animals really is unique experience.


On Open Days visitors can go in to every pen and handle all the animals.

Members of the team welcome and encourage children and adults to:

- groom baby donkeys and ponies,

- cuddle lambs and baby goats,

- stroke rabbits and guinea pigs on their laps

- hold tiny chicks and ducklings 

- tickle the piglets tummies.  How many can you make roll over? 

There is lots to do whatever the weather.

If you enjoy freshly cooked succulent bacon on a soft bap, amazing sizzling sausage hotdogs or tuna ciabattas, jacket potatoes with delicious fillings, try one of our "Specials" or  treat yourself to our scrummy cakes which are too good to be missed, then visit us in The Old Dairy tea barn. We cater for clients on a gluten free diet and vegetarians as well.

(There is no designated picnic area and priority in the heated Tea Barn and on the patio is given to those purchasing our food.)

Looby Loo (our land train) will be giving rides throughout the day weather permitting. £1 a ride. 

So come and enjoy family time at Manor Farm. We look forward to seeing you.

Entry is £6 for everyone 2 and over. Children under 2 are free. Sadly we do NOT have credit card facilities at the farm.
