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.

Nice day out with the family. Our 18 months old son had a great time. Not only petting the animals, but also in the playground, and specialy in the indoor play area. Cafe is OK, home made food, sandwiches and refreshments

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.
