This lovely family-run open farm is a great place to visit with young children – we love seeing the animals, exploring the adventure playground and having something to eat in the cafe. Situated just outside York, there's free parking, plenty of picnic space and it's a great option for birthday parties for animal-mad kids too.

*Meet The Animals*

From donkeys to guinea pigs, goats to poultry of all shapes and sizes and many more! Beetle Bank Farm has lots of super friendly animals for you to feed, meet and cuddle. Their friendly staff are on hand to answer your questions and introduce you to all of their amazing fluffy, furry and feathered friends.

*Play and Explore*

Beetle Bank Farm is situated in the beautiful rural village of Murton (only four miles away from York city centre) with acres of fields to roam and let off steam. Go wild on their two adventure playgrounds or explore the ride-on toys, zip line, sandpit, playhouse and Inflatables (weather permitting).

*Parties and Events* 

Looking for a birthday party with a difference or have an animal-mad child? Look no further than Beetle Bank Farm. Day and evening bookings are available. Get in touch to discuss how they can develop a perfect party package to suit you!

*Activity Room*

Unwind and have a break in the activity room! Watch eggs hatch in the incubator, get creative, draw and colour with their colouring books, paper and activity sheets. On special occasions, you can meet some of the more elusive creatures and animals.

*Educational Farm*

Find out more about the animals, running a farm, and the many conservation and wildlife projects at Beetle Bank Farm. With resources and activities for all ages, school trips and other groups are welcome. Contact their friendly team for more details.

*On-site Cafe* 

Relax and revive over breakfast, lunch or a quick snack. And why not grab a hot or cold beverage too. They have so many tasty treats sweet and savoury to choose from. All the food is locally sourced and home-cooked too, so pop in and share a bite!
