Come rain or shine, there is something to keep the family entertained this summer at Tapnell Farm Park!

Visitors to the Farm Park can enjoy a packed summer of fun with even more all-weather family entertainment than ever before!

As well as our award-winning farm play (bouncy pillows, sledge slides, pedal go-karts, straw bale fun) and animals to meet and greet (wallabies, meerkats, goats, donkeys, pigs, alpacas), there are plenty more daily activities and events to look forward to!
