Our Animal Farm in East Ayton is a great place for your children to play and learn. You'll have a great time exploring the farm and paddocks and getting to know all the animals. Meet Henry the goat and pet our donkeys, Shetland ponies and horses. Play hands-on with our rabbits and guinea pigs.

We have a large selection of toy tractors, a sand-pit and play equipment for both younger and older children.

Our Farm Shop sells traditional farmhouse produce; cakes and pastries freshly made in our Farm Bakery. Enjoy morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea in our Tearoom with beautiful views over the Yorkshire Wolds while your children play in the Adventure Play Area or feed the animals in our Animal Farm. We have the wonderful Dogwood Home and Garden Craft Shop situated at our Visitor Centre.

Tea Room and Restaurant

The Tea Shop and Restaurant is run by Basics Plus. Renown local chef Peter Kirby has been secured as catering Manager and under his supervision the facilities have been awarded the highest rating for food hygiene.
