The Barn is a relaxed and friendly space. As such we love it if you bring along your furry buddy. However, we are only friendly to friendly pets. The default position is that your pet must remain on a lead at all times, If your animal is causing disturbance to other guests then we may have to take action. You need to make the call if your pet is suitable in general to be around strangers and also suitable for the time of year and how busy it is. You are liable for your pet behaving obnoxiously. As such, we reserve all rights to remedy any situation as we see fit.
We would love having your favourite pets to visit. There will be a prize at the end of the 2022 summer for the best pet to come visit. As such we are happy to open up our paddocks if you want to bring along something larger like a horse, buffalo or you pet lambs. Maybe call ahead for that one!
