What to Expect

ALL visiting guests must pre-book their admission to the Farm, which includes Annual Members and Under 2’s, so that visitor numbers can be controlled and managed.

Annual Members will be required to pay a fully refundable booking fee of £10.00 per booking. Please note that upon arrival and redemption of your booking at the Farm, within the booked Arrival Session, the booking fee will be refunded. Should you fail to show, nor contact us to cancel, we will retain the booking fee.

We have now moved to an online advanced ticket booking system. This will allow us to control capacity and manage our guest numbers on any given day. This is in turn will ensure that social distancing requirements can be maintained, and will also allow guests to make a completely contactless visit to Odds Farm Park.

Guests may book an arrival time of their choice, and stay at the Farm as long as they wish.

These arrival time sessions last for 30 minutes each, and you can arrive at any time during that session. For example, if you have booked the 10:00am session, you are welcome to arrive at any time between 10:00am and 10:29am, and then remain at the Farm until close at 5:30pm.

ALL visiting guests must pre-book their admission to the Farm, which includes Annual Members and Under 2’s, so that visitor numbers can be controlled and managed.

For the safety of all visitors, it is essential that Guests and Annual Members arrive only during their 30 minute booked time session.

Social distancing markers will be in place to support social distancing on the approach to the Entrance.

If you are running early, we kindly ask that you wait in your car until your arrival time session starts.
If you are running late, we kindly ask that you remain in your car and call the Farm directly, where we will endeavour to reschedule you for an alternative session that day. Please note that if all other sessions are fully-booked, you may be asked to return on another day.

Once you have selected your chosen date and time, and completed any payments, you will be emailed an Order Confirmation for your group. Simply arrive during your allocated time with your whole group and present your Order Confirmation, either as a print out or on a device at the Admission Entrance to the Farm.

It is essential that guests arrive only during their booked time session, in order for us to ensure queues are kept to a minimum and that the number of guests entering the Farm at any one time can be carefully managed.

Annual Members will be required to pay a fully refundable booking fee of £5.00 per booking. Please note that upon arrival and redemption of your booking at the Farm, within the booked Arrival Session, the booking fee will be refunded. This will take effect from Monday 20th July. Should you fail to show, nor contact us to cancel, we will retain the booking fee.

Valid Membership Cards must be presented for each Annual Membership holder along with the Order Confirmation upon arrival at the Farm. The confirmation will be scanned by a member of staff behind a Perspex screen, who will welcome you and answer any questions you may have.

Upon Arrival

Prior to arrival at the Admissions Entrance, you can choose to either use our traditional entrance path, or our Alternative Woodland Path. Upon approaching the Entrance, social distancing markers will be in place to support social distancing.

In our first weeks of reopening, our main focus will be inviting guests back view all of our animals in their outdoor paddocks. There will be some changes to the facilities that may be open, especially those that are more difficult to adapt to allow social distancing.

We hope to be able to reopen all areas as soon as possible, once Government guidelines permit. Guests can view which areas of the Farm are available on our Interactive Map, and discover further information such as restrictions and opening times around each area of the Farm.

Odds Farm Park has implemented many new measures to assist our guests to feel confident in carrying out social distancing while visiting.

Changes include:

  • Daily visitor numbers will be capped to ensure the Farm adheres to government guidelines, and to ensure guests can safely distance themselves during their visit.
  • In order to allow guests and staff to safely social distance themselves, certain areas of the Farm, which are enclosed and do not easily allow free movement, will be closed.
  • Protective Perspex screens are at all staff and guests till and interaction points, to provide further confidence to guests and staff alike. These will also be located within the Tractor and Trailer Ride, to allow each family group to distance themselves from one another safely.
  • New signage and way finding will be in place to ensure safe social distancing. Designated queuing and distancing markers are placed around the Farm, to encourage guests to adhere to necessary distances from other customers and staff. New signage will be prominent in queuing areas, at till points, within toilets and other areas where guests would naturally gather.
  • One-way systems will be implemented in certain areas. This will further assist guests in ensuring that necessary distances can be maintained between one another. One-way systems will be present within bathrooms and at Food Collection points.
  • Odds Farm Park will be a contactless site, for those that wish. Guests will be able to gain admission, make purchases, and even order and collect food and beverages, without making contact with Odds Farm Park staff. A new Odds Farm Park App is now available, which allows guests to order Food and Beverages through several of our catering outlets, more details here.

As an outdoor family farm park attraction, we have always actively encouraged regular handwashing for all guests. We ask our guests to observe good hygiene practices when they visit by washing their hands at one of the many handwashing stations upon arrival and regularly throughout their visit.

In order to further assist guests, please see the facilities listed below, on the Farm Park:

  • Five Designated Handwashing Stations are found throughout the Farm Park. Guests must ensure they regularly wash their hands with running water and soap throughout their visit.
  • New Hand Sanitising stations can be found at fourteen locations through the Farm. Handwashing with warm soapy water should always take a precedence for guests to maintain good hand hygiene when visiting Odds Farm Park, however these stations are in place to assist with good hygiene between washes.
  • Three bathroom facility blocks are available, each also with associated handwashing stations.  These are located within the Playbarn, next to the Animal Barn, and in the Dipple Field. In order to assist with social distancing, the Playbarn and Animal Barn toilets will have one-way systems in place, and a reduced number of operating toilets available.
  • Please ensure to wear your face covering in all indoor areas, as per the Government guidelines upon the day of your visit.
