Farm Animal Experiences

Enjoy a peaceful, one-to-one animal experience at a small, rustic farm devoted to micro and miniature animals

Pre-booking is essential

From £35

This is a private goat play session with up to three little pygmy goats.  Includes an introduction to the goats by a Huckleberry Woods goat handler.  You’ll be able to brush and tickle the goats, feed them their favourite nibbles and take them out for a run in the orchard to mingle with their animal friends.  You’ll learn all about caring for pygmy goats and what keeps them healthy and happy.

Find peace and serenity at Huckleberry

With only a small number of visitors booked in at any one time, our guests are able to spend a peaceful couple of hours mingling with our tame animals, many of them free ranging.

Before you book, please consider that Huckleberry Woods is not a graveled pathway, chemical weed killer type of place – but a wild, back to nature type of place. It’s located in a small private orchard and is charming and understated rather than large, slick and commercial. It’s not the sort of place where you rush between loads of animal enclosures, vending machines and other distractions. It offers an hour or two of peace and serenity. Time to relax. Time to ‘be’ not just ‘do’ and time to reconnect with nature. Please consider carefully whether this type of relaxing experience is likely to be your cup of tea before booking. 😊

Please look at the detailed guidance on how to Find Us and ​wear sensible footwear for your visit (no flip flops, Crocs or anything open toed. You won’t be able to visit or do your animal walk with open-toed shoes so please do try to remember this important safety point).

  • Pre-booking a time slot is essential.
  • Opening hours around 10.30am – 3.30pm (closed Mondays and Wednesdays).
  • (We’re closed between 12.30 and 1.30pm for animal feeding and rest so we can’t admit you during this quiet time).
  • Please don’t be tempted arrive early as we can’t let you in during animal rest times.

Please note: All visitors enter Huckleberry Woods and take part in animal encounters and experiences at their own risk.

Sturdy, closed-toed footwear must be worn to enter as there are hooves and trotters in the orchard (please no flip-flops, sandals, Crocs or ballet pumps).
