Health & Safety

We advise all visitors to read below.

Children in your care should be strictly supervised at all times. We do not allow children under 14 to visit without an adult.

Please wear sensible footwear. A visit to the farm park will involve lots of walking, and as we are in a rural location the paths can be naturally uneven. If it is at the start of the season or after a long wet period we recommend you wear wellies. Please ensure you have warm enough clothing, it can often feel cooler on the coast than inland.

All animals can be unpredictable and can bite or peck. Do NOT touch or hand-feed the ponies, pigs or cattle – please place their food on the ground, down the chutes or in the troughs provided.

Other animals are only to be fed animal food purchased at the farm park. Good hygiene is important around animals please see the Hygiene section below.

Pregnant women should not touch ewes, lambs, goats, goat kids or calves.

Some farm animals may carry a number of infections that can be harmful to humans if you adhere to the following guidelines this will help to minimise any risk.

  • Please only eat and drink in the café or picnic areas.
  • Do not wear gloves when feeding or touching the animals.
  • Do not allow children to put their fingers in their mouths whilst around the animals.
  • Do not kiss animals, chew fences nor allow children to put their faces close to animals.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly with antibacterial soap after leaving an animal contact area and before eating and drinking. You must supervise your child’s hand washing to ensure it is done correctly. Sanitising gels and wipes do not provide enough protection alone and are not a substitute for thorough hand washing. Hand washing facilities can be found in the visitor centre toilets and next to the pond entrance.

Please wash your hands thoroughly again before leaving the farm.

Our play areas are unsupervised, parents and guardians are responsible for supervising their own children.

Our play areas are regularly checked and inspected annually by The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA).

The public areas of the Farm Park are clearly delineated by fencing, gates and signage, in particular by the cliff-top fence.

Please do not climb on the fencing or gates and do not enter the animal pens. Anyone venturing past these boundaries is doing so at their own risk. 

We have a first aid kit on site; please notify a member of staff should you require assistance. We are not permitted to administer medicine or keep medicine on site. Our nearest hospital is Cardigan Hospital which has a limited emergency department. Directions are available from our Entrance Desk.

These are great fun but can cause chaos on the Farm Park. Please leave them at home or we are happy to look after them at the Entrance Desk.

A speed restriction of 5 mph is in place as you approach the car park and visitor centre, with appropriate signage in place. As we are still a working farm there may be agricultural vehicles on the move.

Please report lost children to the Entrance Desk or the nearest staff member. It is a great idea when visiting attractions to take a photo of your child on your phone when you arrive so that you can show it to staff when they go missing as they will be wearing the same clothes. Please also tell your child to approach a member of staff if they are lost. Lost children will be kept at the Entrance Desk. 

Dogs must be kept on a short lead at ALL times and please clear up after your dog.

Dogs (apart from assistance dogs) are not allowed into the indoor cafe but are allowed onto the outdoor cafe patio area, where bowls of water are provided. Please do not leave your dog in your car.

Smoking and e-cigarettes are not permitted in the visitor centre, play areas or around the animal pens.

Please do not drop cigarette ends around the Farm Park as these are harmful to wildlife.

On hearing an alarm in the visitor centre please make your way to the assembly point in the playground.
