Chatsworth Farmyard & Adventure Playground
Su to Sa from 10:30 AM to 05:30 PM
Excellent fun for children of all ages, the adventure playground and farmyard set in the grounds of Chatsworth House provide enough entertainment for a full day out, or can be used in conjunction with the house or gardens. The woodland adventure playground has two sections: a huge construction of wooden walkways, ladders and slides; and a smaller scale sand and water play area, which has an educational slant. The farmyard allows access to a good range of animals, including hens, sheep, pigs and cows. Children can get close to the animals and there is a milking demonstration daily. There is also a small cafe, a gift-shop, and plenty of space to have a picnic. Opening times differ for all, so check the website for details.
