We are good to go!

We have spent months planning our phased reopening to make it as safe and as welcoming as possible for you all!

New Covid legisilation you will need to adhere to:

  1. The Rule of 6- No more than 6 people from more than one household can mix on site. Our team will be monitoring the site and may ask for you to split if they feel the law is not being followed. Exceptions are for those in a support bubble, but please do not be offended if our team approach you to confirm- there interest is the safety of every guest who visits us
  2. Our business has now been placed in a Covid alert level 2 area. This means that households cannot mix indoors but can still mix outdoors or in our marquee. We still have plenty of fun activities outdoors so this should not impact your day heavily!

 

Before booking your tickets, please read the following information

What is open?

Working to the latest government guidance we have now opened our whole site safely and our team are committed to making your family day out to us as safe as possible.

Our farm park, farm trails, cafe, play barn and marquee are all operating. During October half term our play barn will be open for Pumpkin carving but not for play. 

Good to Go Accreditation

“We’re Good To Go” is the official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.

Is it safe to visit the farm?

We are confident that we have worked to the government guidelines regarding COVID-19 and have taken every precaution to protect you and our team.

We are working to a phased reopening at 50% reduced capacity. We will assess daily, and only when we are confident that we can handle more numbers will we implement any changes.

We also have a one way system in place, increased hand washing facilities as well as sanitiser points across the site. More toilets have been provided, social distance markers are in place as well as our reduced numbers and staggered entry time slots to ease the flow across the site.

As we are a farm that is used to controlling zoonotic diseases, we already have very high hygiene and safety measures in place to protect you and our team, so we are confident that we are prepared for our phased re opening

What about hand washing?

We already have hand washing facilities in place but we have build additional sinks to use in the park. As well as the sinks we have installed multiple hand sanitiser points where hand washing isn’t available or where an activity takes place.

As always, hand sanitiser is NOT a replacement for handwashing, but to be used in addition to hand washing or where hand washing is not available. Always wash your hands for 20 seconds regularly.

Cleaning regimes

Before we closed we had already implemented hourly cleans across all areas of the site and we will continue to use this practice when we reopen. Whilst our staff are cleaning we may need to close certain areas temporarily, but will be open as soon as we can.
