Watch live


The Jolly Barn was once the farm’s dairy parlour, but now it’s a firm favourite with families. Part of our farm park, it’s the perfect place to introduce your little ones to farm animals for the first time.

Who’s in the Jolly Barn?

You’ll find almost every farm animal you can think of. From ferrets and fancy mice to miniature ponies, shire horses, donkeys and goats. They’re all in the Jolly Barn. And, of course, no farm would be complete without lambs, hens and chicks. You can also milk the cows – well our lifelike plastic models!

Children in the Jolly Barn

Over the road, there’s The Piggery plus alpacas, turkeys, goats, giant rabbits, ducks and more goats and sheep in our rare breed paddocks which you can walk around or take the land train tour. So we have plenty of space for lots of children to enjoy. They’ll also learn something, too – about how these animals live, and the rare breeds we keep.

And we look after hygiene too, with plenty of hand-washing facilities and regular cleaning of touchpoints. So you don’t have to worry.

Rare Breed Survival Trust (RBST)

We’re proud to be the only farm attraction in Wales to gain RBST approval.

We’ve been approved by the Rare Breed Survival Trust for efforts and contribution to conserving rare breeds of livestock.

The Rare Breed Survival Trust (RBST) is a national charity working across the UK to safeguard the future of rare and native livestock and equine breeds. It aims to reverse the decline of all livestock breeds listed on their watchlist and to have all the breeds on the watchlist in a stable position by 2028.

Our farm currently houses eight priority breeds such as the Exmoor pony and ten at risk breeds including the Saddleback pig. We also house many rare and traditional Welsh breeds such as Welsh harlequin ducks, Welsh pigs, Balwen sheep and the charismatic badger faced sheep.
