One of the favourite places to go in North Yorkshire is Thornton Hall Farm and Country Park near Skipton. The country farm attraction has bundles of fun things to do with the kids for a perfect family adventure located on the border of Pendle and the Yorkshire Dales. Experience hands-on animal encounters with a wide selection of farm animals, feed the animals and help to collect the chicken’s eggs. Try the indoor Wizzick play barn with ride on tractors, astro slides, delve into sandpits and get lost in a straw maze. Join the outdoor activities that will fill you all with fresh air and excitement; the kids can get behind the wheel in the 4×4 safari adventure or take the tractor and trailer ride to discover who’s grazing in the fields. Plus the UK’s favourite little green tractor, ‘Tractor Ted’ has announced that Thornton Hall Farm has been chosen to be one of their new ‘Little Farm’ sites and his popular TV show can be viewed on Nick Junior.
Weekly sessions for younger children are a great favourite at the Farm with Yoga for toddlers on Mondays, fairytale Tuesdays, mini farmers on Wednesdays, trot and pose ponies on Thursdays and magical musical adventures in Hartbeeps on Fridays. If you have children aged 0-4 years make sure you add it to your term time days out when the bigger kids are at school. If you have children who are pony mad then book a place on the Pony Trekking experience on selected dates. There is a full calendar of events each year that are designed to keep all the family happy, including Tractor Ted events, Pony World, National Festival Circus, Dougie Lampkin & Son Live, Summertime Festival, Birds of Prey displays, Halloween, a Bonfire & Fireworks Extravaganza and a Christmas Wonderland
Sit back and enjoy an extra special children’s birthday party when all the work is done for you, choose from Pony Party, Farm Party, Tractor Ted party or mini Quads party. For older children enquire about the Quadtrex dirt track adventure for kids 6-11 years and over 12s. Complete your perfect day out with a treat in the tearoom where you will find family focused refreshments and a warm welcome.
