Our History

OUR HISTORY

Cockfields Farm Park is located on the Border of Ashton Under Lyne & Oldham in Greater Manchester. We are family run business and have been for over 60 years! In this time we have wore a few hats including Farm Shop, Potato Merchants , Garden centre and more recently one of the Largest Aquatic Stores in the country.

In 2008 we acquired a few Pygmy goats as an attraction for the Farm shop and Cockfields Farm Park was born. Year on Year the farm park grew and more and more animals were added as well as a wide selection of play areas. In 2017 we decided to close down the farm shop & Aquatic Store and solely focus on being a Farm Park . In the short time since then our growth has been phenomenal! Everyday is different down on the farm we pride ourselves on the very interactive activities we run that suit children and adults of all ages, Wash a Pig, Bottle Feed the Goats, Cuddle a Guinea Pig, Groom a Rabbit, Meet the Snakes, Lizards and Tortoises, Groom the Donkeys, Meet the Bugs & Creepy Crawlies to name just a few.

In this time we have also expanded our Play offering both indoors and outdoors. At Cockfields we firmly believe children thrive on imagination & Creative play which is reflected in our amazing indoor role Play Village. Outside we have Swings, Slides, Pedal Tractors, the Warren Tunnel Play, Our Famous Jumping Pillow, Beach Area, Climbing Frame , Milking Cow and Den Building Area.

As well as our Daily Activites we often have Special events which we are very well know for including our Pick Your Own Pumpkin Patch & Our Amazing Christmas Experience .

We are open 7 days a week and have a Large Free Car Park, Café , Picnic Area & Gift Shop.
