Snettisham Park

I+

Snettisham Park is a busy working farm consisting of 329 acres. One of its highlights is the unique tractor and covered trailer Deer Safari ride where you can get up close to the friendliest deer in the UK.

This 45 minute round trip takes you into the deer park and enables you to hand feed a spectacular herd of over 50 hinds plus the awesome stags. You will receive live commentary throughout and enjoy the parks rich and amazing wildlife plus learn about the crops grown as you go. If you are lucky you might see the deer swim across the lake. During deer calving months of May, June and July you will be able to see beautiful spotted calves. During the summer the stags grow their new antlers ready for the rutting season towards the end of September.
 
There are over 400 ewes which will lamb during February, March and April. Visitors during this time, will be able to watch 'live lambing' inside our barns.
 
Activities include bottle feeding our lambs (March - October), collecting and grading freshly laid eggs, pony grooming, friendly goats to feed, watching our young calves being fed, rabbit groominh and guinea pig cuddling. There are also pony rides during the school holidays for children.
 

There are also three farm trails to walk around. Short farming and woodland/wildlife trail 2/3 mile (ideal for little legs!), discovery trail 1.5 mile and archaeology trail 2.5 miles. Learn something about this rich and fertile countryside and see an abundance of diverse wildlife and habitats along River Ingol. Visitors are often surprised to find out that the farm is the site of an important Roman Villa, a Saxon Settlement and the famous St Thomas Chapel.

The Visitor Centre is the welcoming hub of your visit. Here you will find the tearoom - light airy space where you can treat yourselves to delicious home-baking, light lunches, cooked breakfasts,  fresh coffee and much more - not forgetting our very popular venison burgers. There is a play area for younger visitors to burn off excess energy whilst adults can sit on the terrace and enjoy the splendid views across the Norfolk countryside.

The shop contains farm related toys, gifts, stationary and luxury confectionary and jars. You can also buy venison and farm fresh eggs.
