Due to Covid-19 (Coronavirus) restrictions, Chatsworth house and farmyard is currently closed until further notice. The garden, car parks, estate farm shop and takeaway food shops are open for those who live locally to Chatsworth. All tickets must be booked online.
The farmyard at Chatsworth has been a favourite day out for children of all ages since 1973.
What child doesn’t love to meet ponies and lambs, take a trailer ride, and then swing, climb and splash around in the great outdoors?
So, if your young ones like to meet animals, make new friends, try new things and play all day, they are going to love the Chatsworth farmyard and playground. There are also special activities during Easter, Halloween and Christmas.
Grown-ups can have a great time too, so you can enjoy refreshments in the café or browse the shop.
