Both fun and educational, you will get to the chance to ask questions at our interactive tables. See our Daily Information page for times.

Are you brave enough?

You will have the chance to handle from a range of species here at Knockhatch. Every day is different! Are you brave enough to handle a snake, hissing cockroach, lizard, spider? Handling them will be in a controlled way with one of our handlers. This is to ensure your safety and that of our exhibits.
Have you already been to our Animal Encounters Barn and handled something? What did you learn? What was your favourite? Please share your experience with us over on our Facebook Page, we would love to see your photos!

All animals can bite and can carry diseases so you must wash your hands thoroughly after handling anything in the animals encounter barn, particularly before eating. You can wash your hands at the various hand washes situated around the farm, there's one in the barn. Expectant mothers should take care around the animals due to the fact they may carry zoonoses - More info can be found on our Health and Safety page

Please email tracey@knockhatch.com to have your photo considered for our online and offline marketing!

REVIEW *****
"We went to Knockhatch at the weekend with my 8 year old Granddaughter. What a gem, we had a great time. Had lunch at the Bear's Den which was extremely reasonable and good too. I had great fun on the Water Slide and as I was celebrating my 71st birthday I proved you are never too old to have a go. Also enjoyed the Quadapiller Ride. Great value for money."
