Read about what is on offer at the award-winning visitor attraction during the summer months.
What do Coco the pony, Matilda the goat and Ginger the guinea pig all have in common? Well, they’re all resident farm animals at Thornton Hall Country Park. So don’t stay indoors this summer, get yourselves over to our award-winning visitor attraction between Colne and Skipton to meet our furry friends - as well as enjoying hay-bales of indoor and outdoor farm fun.
Glorious countryside, play barn, go-karts, outdoor play area, thrilling rides, deer park and Harrisons cafe - you just won’t want to go home.
As well as all the fabulous farm activities (lamb feeding, egg collecting and animal encounters) there are additional activities every week-day during the summer holidays included in your normal admission price.
On Mondays there’s a Fairy and Pirate theme - grab your fairy dust or your swashbuckling pirate hat and join in with lots of extra themed activities!
It’s ‘Pony Club’ on Tuesdays - experience pony life at the farm, pony rides, pony grooming and horse care.
Every Wednesday the entertaining Rapide Brothers will be here all day running their fantastic Circus Workshops (even the grown ups can join in!)
