Bucklebury Farm Park is a 70 acre farm that is perfect for introducing kids to the wonders of barnyard animals and farm living. Visit wild boars, llamas, donkeys, Shetland ponies, lambs, pigs, goats, and much more! There is food available for you to feed the friendly animals, and a Pat-a-Pet area where rabbits and guinea pigs can be held by guests! There are more hands-on experiences available where visitors can help bottle-feed the lambs and play with the goats.

Take a tractor ride out to a large field to see and feed the many different kinds of deer. Bucklebury Farm Park houses Red, Fallow, Sika, and Axis deer that came to Britain from across the world! Go on the deer safari to see newborn calves during the spring or deer rutting during the fall. It’s ideal for nature lovers and photographers alike! There are Nature Walk and Wild Walk trails where guests can venture out into the woods over boardwalks. Explore streams and see how many different plants and animals you can find!

There are also several play areas throughout Bucklebury Farm that are sure to please younger visitors. There is a large outdoor play area that includes a bounce castle, go karts, sand pit, and more! For rainy days, head to the indoor play area which features two Astro slides and other play equipment. There is also a coffee shop available six days a week with a wood-burning stove to warm up chilly fingers. Start off with home-made cake, or enjoy hot bacon rolls, fresh soups, or afternoon tea.
