A real working farm which allows people through the farm gate to learn about all things farming and countryside.
Although the farm has only been open to visitors a short while it’s not a new venture for the farming couple behind it; it’s an extension of their commitment to connecting farming and education.
On site we offer spacious indoor and outdoor play areas, a café serving home cooked food and delicious cakes, outdoor viewing areas to see the animals and an indoor petting barn with a large variety of friendly animals.
We are open Wednesday to Sunday term time in accordance with NYCC dates and 7 days during the school holidays.
We offer term time weekly “Little Farmer” Sessions on Wednesdays and Thursday mornings from 10.30am -12.30pm designed for toddlers, allowing them to meet the animals, do a craft, have story time, snack and more.
We have themed fun educational activities each half term. This can be anything from sowing and growing your own fruit and flowers to wild bird feed making.
It’s always worth checking our Facebook page for up to date information.

Crazy Tykes is a large soft play area with plenty of equipment for all ages. There is a great babies/crawlers area in the centre of the place and good visibility from the seating area into most of the large play equipment. There is a football/ball games area and party rooms around the edge. The café is well priced with a good variety of foods.
The play area is fitted with the latest play equipment designed to cater for children from 0 – 13 year old
There is a 4 Lane Astra Slide, twisting spiral slide, multi sports area, basket ball nets, soft ball cannons and ball pools. With safety in mind they have also provided a separate toddler area for the under 4’s

A huge and fantastic soft play area situated on the outskirts of York. There is a bright and airy main play frame with a 4 slide racer, a disco area, separate areas for babies and toddlers and football/ride-on area. Café and a huge outdoor area with petting farm and sand pit. A great day out.
Whatever the weather, our gigantic air conditioned, indoor arena will put huge smiles on your kids faces – treat them to an experience they’ll be talking about for days.
With trampolines, reflex games, basketball hoops, dodgeball arena, foampits, balance and agility challenges and a giant airbag to bounce onto, you cannot fail to impress the whole family.
I really rate it! Well organised, clean, lots of fun and nice cafe too.
