Coronavirus Information

The Farm Park: 

Although the government guidelines state that as a farm park we are allowed to open we have made the decision to keep the farm park closed for a little longer. We want to ensure that as a company we act responsibly and ensure that you and your families - along with our staff remain safe. We will be reopening the farm park at some point.

But do not worry......

We have been inundated with kind messages whilst we have been closed so have found a way to reopen so that you can come and see our animals and enjoy some family time whilst being able to social distance.

Drive Thru Farm Safari:

Join us on our Drive-Thru Farm Safari here at Thornton Hall Country Park. The first in the UK!

Come along and see a wide variety of farm animals as you journey over some of our 160 acres of fields and quarry land, getting up close and personal with the animals - all from the comfort of your car.


Our farm Safari is fully compliant to the Governments guidelines ensuring your family and our staff are kept safe at all times.

Included in your Drive Tru Farm Safari is a designated picnic plot and outdoor play area to use. Food must be ordered from Roosters Takeaway in order to use the play area.
