Latest update: Hobbledown will close temporarily from tonight Monday 4th Jan

Dear Friends,
The Government's recent announcement of a stricter lockdown means we will close temporarily until the restrictions are lifted. 
Any guests with tickets to visit from Tuesday 5th January onwards, please contact and we will respond as soon as we can.
Members will have their passes extended and monthly Direct Debit members will not pay for the time we are closed. Our apologies for the continued inconvenience this causes.
Stay safe and well.
Kind regards

Nick and Charlie, Hobbledown's founders

What our customers say...

We had heard some great things about Hobbledown and our experience there didn’t disappoint. With so much for our 5 year old to enjoy both inside and outdoors including all the animals to see, our only issue was squeezing everything into the time we had. Customer service was great and we felt it offered excellent value for money for a day out with little ones. We will definitely be back.
