Animal Adventure Zone

Take a break from the action and head over to the Animal Adventure Zone, the East Midlands No1 Family Farm

Take a break from the action and head over to the Animal Adventure Zone, the East Midlands No1 Family Farm. With over 10,000sq ft undercover you can enjoy close encounters of the furry kind with hundreds of creatures in the dry. Outdoors there are paddocks of friendly animals to see. Don’t miss the goat mountain and the climbing Billies. With activities running throughout the day, there is something for all the family.

 The Big Red Barn

Here are all your favourite farm animals. There are plenty of cheeky goats, cute ponies and pretty pigs to entertain all the family. Watch for the arrival of all the new babies that everyone loves. Save time for Dennis the Donkey (he gets sad when she’s passed by) and her little friend.

 Reptile House

Expect the unexpected here with reptiles that slither, crawl & swim. You’ll meet crushing Pythons, toothy carnivores and quick sliver lizards.  There are so many different animal adventures at Robin Hoods Wheelgate.

Baby Animal Barn

Its Ahh time for all the family when you see these cute pets in their large comfy homes. There are not only rabbits of every size and colour, and guinea pigs with long coats but surprises that you never expected to see in a farm.

Otter Enclosure

In 2018 we  unveiled the brand new £10,000 home of Harry Otter and Ottermus Prime, the attraction’s twin Otters.

Officially opened on August 9th, the purpose built enclosure took six weeks to complete and includes a natural pool for the seven month old brothers. Asian short clawed otters, Harry and Ottermus arrived in Nottinghamshire from their former home at Newquay Zoo in May.

Families can join the farm keepers at 11am and 2.45pm daily, for an interactive feeding session, talk and ask any questions you like about our new arrivals

Handling the Animals Time

How can you pick up and hold a rabbit without hurting it? What is the best way of handling a guinea pig without stressing it out? Our friendly Robin Hoods Wheelgate Keepers are experts who will show you how to look after your pets and the best way to hold a strange creature. The Keepers are sure to bring along a surprise or two for you to touch and enjoy.
Please collect an activities hand out from admissions.
