Finkley is always a popular place to visit as our farm, indoor soft-play areas and outdoor adventure areas offer so much to see and do all year-round.

Today On The Farm

Check-out our ‘Today On The Farm’ blackboards for a fun range of seasonal, hands-on activities with our adorable animals. From grooming the ponies, stroking the rabbits or cheering on the sheep and goats as they race around the track, to greeting the birds of prey up close and seeing their flying display.

Our enormous purpose-built, light and airy indoor Play Barn has an array of fun adventure areas suitable for children of all ages. Outside you’ll find acres of adventure for everyone to enjoy.
