PLUS opportunities to purchase wine and adults can even find their own “Easter Treats” with things like discounts, vouchers, experiences and MORE!
We are SO excited to open our vineyard this Easter for the very first time!
Our self-guided vineyard tour features stunning views over the Wiltshire countryside, and is a great way to find out more about English wine. Kids will love our Easter egg hunt with a chocolate treat at the end of the day PLUS photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny!
The farm & vineyards are open from 10am – 5:30pm and you can visit any time during these hours and advanced booking is strongly recommended.
Wellies or walking boots are a good idea in wet weather, plus brollies and raincoats, just in case!
Hot-homemade food, drinks and snacks are also available to purchase from our Hatch Kitchen & Café on the day and tables are available on a first come, first serve basis, please try to avoid the busy 1pm lunch rush!
The shop will be open for you to buy wine and lots of other gift items to take home and enjoy over Easter.

Had a lovely time here. My granddaughter loved feeding the animals. The food in the cafe was amazing. The staff were great we even made a fat ball for the birds 🐦

Always love coming here. There is a zip wire which is super fun and so was the Xmas trail that was on! The plant based burger was tasty and good portion size. The staff were friendly and polite. Highly recommended 👌

Really enjoyed a visit here. It is a small place with lots of potential and enough to see. The cost to get in is reasonable for what they have and much cheaper than larger destinations.
You can buy food and feel almost all of the animals. They are really friendly and take the food from your hand. While we were walking around we were given a cup full of seed for the ducks and geese for free which was a really nice touch and really helped entertain a family with kids that were in the same area.
There is a nice woodland walk with picnic tables which were all vacant when we were there so would be great to take a picnic. I think it is an area not many explore. There was a play area for kids there too with a zip line and various other bits so would be a great way to tire kids out.
We stopped in the cafe for some lunch before leaving and had some very generous portions of food for the price, so much so we couldn’t finish it all. The outside area was great too with trampolines and plenty of seating in a lovely setting.

Such a fantastic day out. A wide variety of animals to look at with the opportunity to see some up close. Great value for money, we can’t wait to go again

We really enjoyed our visit to Cholderton Rare Breeds farm! Nice food, helpful and kind staff, happy animals! The children all seemed to enjoy that there was entertainment from ‘Silly Scott’ laid on for the bank holiday weekend too.

We had a great time with our son here as a birthday treat. He loved seeing the sheep and goats up close and getting to feed them and the calves. He also got to stroke a rabbit and guinea pig. By far his favourite experience was the pig race, over in a flash but very funny! The food was cracking, good portion sizes, very tasty; we had burgers for us and sausage, chips and beans for him. £5 for the kids food and £10 for the adult, which for the size, quality and taste was excellent value

We had an amazing afternoon here. The food was very good, we had a Mac & Cheese, ham, egg & chips and a lids packed lunch. We brought animal feed with our tickets and was surprised how much we got. A great selection of animals. Loved stroking the cows, watching the pig racing was fun. Very interactive for kids and little one love the trampolines. Will definitely revisit.
Plenty of space for the children to explore and run around. They liked the different animals and feeding them. The outdoor play area in the woods was enjoyed too.

A really wonderful and highly recommended experience at Cholderton. Perfect to stop off the A303 with kids (adults too) if you want an alternative to the typical services rest break in a journey.
The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our visit. The lunch in the cafe was excellent quality, with plenty of fresh ingredients, and was a particular high point to our visit. The coffee was delicious and good to see there were wine options also (should the mood strike).
The farm itself has the usual variety of animals, but with the rare breeds giving extra interest and delight as you explore the site. There are lots of opportunities for everyone to get close to the animals for feeding and other hands on experiences with activities running throughout the day.
And if that isn’t enough, there are some fun playground setups (swings, sand pit. climbing frame and slide) if the kids still have energy to run off.
