The Chatsworth House Farm and Adventure Playground opened in 1973, and has been getting bigger and better ever since! With lots to do for children of all ages, this is a fun family day out. Why not sit back in the cafe and enjoy a relaxing drink or snack while the children meet the animals and run off some energy on the sturdy wooden adventure playset before you all go for a ride on a tractor trailor and try out the newest addition to the park – the Climbing Forest.
