January Open Days


Saturday 29th November 11-4pm             Santa's Arrival and Open Day

Sunday  30th November 11-4pm              Santa's Arrival and Open Day


Christmas is well on its way with TWO more special events!  


New for 2014 Santa's little helpers were busy last weekend in our warm Tea Barn preparing for Santa's Arrival. There wqs SO much to do! A huge tree to decorate, presents to wrap and fun to be had!!

So throw away the Winter blues and enter the world of green and red and warmth and cheer they created!

AND enjoy OPEN DAY out on the farm with our animals too!

Usual Open Day pricing applies: £6 for everyone aged two and over. 

Open Day begins at 11am with coffee and cake or a decadent brunch and lots of animal cuddling, then we gather to meet Santa as he arrives at 12.30 with his train of happy elves.

Enjoy fun and laughter, ring bells and sing carols to welcome him, then have some scrummy lunch or visit him in his magical grotto.  There will be photo opportunities with our smallest baby donkeys and the elves. Borrow an elf outfit for you or your child and get that great shot for the family Christmas card or for doting grandparents.

A special experience for all the family!

Pre booking is advised for visits to Santa's Magical Grotto as presents from the North pole are limited!

The cost of a Grotto visit is £5 per child over 1 year old and all the family are welcome to join in.

Contact our office on 01256 767596 or email elizabeth@millersark.co.uk to book.

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.

Don't forget to follow us on Facebook.com/Miller's Ark or Twitter (@MillersArk) and be the first to see the photos of the newborn babies and all our latest news and events.

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