Overview

You probably know us as a lovely place for children to see the animals, run around in beautiful countryside and let off steam in our state-of-the-art play barn - but there's a lot more to Sacrewell. With the help of £1.4 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund, our 18th century water mill is being transformed into a national centre for milling excellence - take a tour and find out how your great-grandparents got their daily bread. Foodies can also join a tractor trip around the fields of our tenant farmers Riverford Organic Farms (it's on our land). Then there's our wildlife trail, scavenger hunt and two new rambles - if you're lucky, you'll see the rare red kites and brown hares. Seasonal events range from our Lamb National to ploughing with vintage tractors. In our 50th year as a charity dedicated to agricultural education, we continue to welcome students of all ages who want to learn traditional skills and get an insight into rural life. We hope that all our visitors not only have a great day out but feel they've learned something too.

Had a great day out with the girls. Weather was super and the girls loved it. Food very basic but didn’t go for the food. Recommend

Having seen this place develop from before it was really an attraction, we enjoy an occasional visit with a suitably aged grandchild - so have visited with those who are now over 20, one who is now 14 and the 9 year old. Goats, sheep,...More

We visited during the October half-term with our (almost) two-year-old grandson. He loved the chance to choose a pumpkin, dash around in the sunshine and feed the goats... we thought there were fewer animals than we'd expected, but he didn't seem to care! The indoor...More

We visited on a lovely day and the kids really enjoyed being able to see and feed the animals. The old water mill and old house were both a very interesting experience. The play area is big enough and with good quality soft play. There...More

Not a ride for kids?? Nonsense! My 14 month old daughter was delighted with the ride, especially the bouncy bits! Some folks just don't know how to have fun eh?! 🤦‍♂️ The commentary was amusing, informative and got everyone involved. Playbarn was excellent and my...More

I'm sorry I don't have any experience with power wheelchairs so it would be hard for me to comment. There is a slope to the field of that is useful?

Hi Lynda, so sorry I have only just seen this. Yes we are, we're about six miles south of Stamford. I think the easiest way to get to us from Spalding is to take the A15 to Peterborough and then the A47 towards Leicester.
