Hesketh Farm Park is set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, just one mile from the picturesque village of Bolton Abbey and five miles from the market town of Skipton.
There’s loads to do, including feeding and stroking the animals and having fun inside – maybe in the giant sandpit or playing hide and seek with your friends in the straw maze.
The Farm Park is idyllic, with around 10 acres of greenery overlooking the Yorkshire hills and the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam train whistling by in the valley below.
Hesketh Farm is still a working farm with over 1,000 livestock, including cattle, sheep and pigs. Today it is run by Chris and his wife Sue, who are the fourth generation to farm here. As Dales weather can be unpredictable, they have a large cosy, undercover barn with an efficient heating system so that your day will still be fun-packed, even if it’s grim outside. If you’re feeling peckish, there is a small café from which you can enjoy a delightful homemade snack.
