With a new range of Educational Packages launched this summer, Walby Farm park is now able to deliver educational visits from Key Stage 1 and 2 through to GCSE and 'A' Level. In addition to hands-on learning there is a chance for plenty of fresh air & exercise! If the weather’s wet then our large indoor play area for 4-14 year olds can provide some under cover entertainment with a soft play area for your younger groups.

The team at Walby Farm Park are happy to provide CEVAS (Countryside Educational Visits Accreditation Scheme) trained guides to accompany your visit and some exclusive demonstrations to fit in with your specific requirements for formal or informal teaching.

A visit to Walby Farm Park has a mix of fun and education to suit your needs. In addition to an extensive education programme you'll find a new maize maze, outdoor adventure play area and Cumbria's largest indoor play area. There are lots of animals to see, including many rare breeds. During your day make sure you visit the popular pets corner, take a stroll along the farms nature trail or just relax in the Curly Tails Café.

If you would like to extend your stay on the farm with your class or another group we have an Education Room for your use (again, subject to availability). To make the most of your visit come and meet the animals, where you will find Mollie, our Clydesdale horse, Nellie our donkey with her beautiful foal 'Treacle' and many more farm animals, poultry and game birds to see and learn about.
