Hesketh Farm Park


Hesketh Farm Park is set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, just 1 mile from the picturesque village of Bolton Abbey and 5 miles from the market town of Skipton. The Farm Park is idyllic, with around 10 acres of greenery overlooking the Yorkshire hills and the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam train whistling by in the valley below. Hesketh Farm is still a working farm with over 1,000 livestock including cattle, sheep and pigs. Today it is run by Chris and his wife Sue who are the fourth generation to farm here. As Dales’ weather can be unpredictable we have a large cosy, undercover barn with an efficient heating system so that your day will be still fun-packed even if it’s chilly outside. There’s loads to do, including feeding and stroking the animals, having fun inside – maybe in the giant sandpit or playing hide and seek with your friends in the straw maze.


Just when I thought a visit to Bolton Abbey and Village was an experience enough, I then go and discover Hesketh Farm Park which is also situated just a little outside the village. This farm park offers amazing value for money and along with its huge array of very happy and well looked after animals, Hesketh Farm Park is a huge hit with all of its visitors, young and the not so young, yes that’s right, mums and dads have just as much fun as the kids do! With plenty of parking, which comes at a premium at Bolton Abbey as it is also a very popular attraction, Hesketh Farm Park is exactly what a Farm Park should be and I don’t take that comment very lightly! 127 The attraction also has a great little cafe on offer and although they offer a great selection of food and drinks, they also don’t mind you bringing your own little picnic.
