Beetle Bank Farm


Beetle Bank is an open farm, wildlife sanctuary and so much more. Spend the day with us and meet the animals, have an adventure, but most of all have lots of fun! Click HERE to see our Facebook page.

Meet Our Rate Breed

From pygmy hedgehogs to rheas, turkeys to goats, we have lots of wonderful animals for you to get to know. Our friendly staff are on hand to answer your questions and help you look after these beautiful creatures.

Play and Explore

Let off steam in the fields, go wild in the adventure playground, have fun in the sand pit or ride on the tractors and play with the inflatables. We predict two things: you won't be bored and you'll sleep well tonight.

Parties and Events

If you'd like a party or meeting with adventure and animals in the mix, we'd love to host! Day and evening bookings available. Get in touch to discuss how we can develop a package to suit you.
