Whitehouse Farm Centre is Northumberland’s largest family run Farm attraction spread over 40 acres, located south of Morpeth and just a mile off the A1.
The Farm is a great place for families, school and group visits of all ages enabling visitors to see, handle and feed a wide variety of animals from traditional breeds to more unusual and exotic species. There is always a full programme of hands on activities from meeting mini beasts & reptiles, hugging a bunny, stroking anything from a snake to a skunk, being mesmerised by meerkats & marmosets to having a hoot with the Owls!
Whitehouse Farm Centre opened as an attraction in May 1997. Prior to the Farm opening its doors to visitors it was a poultry farm, being one of the largest egg producers in the region at that time. Within the Farm Centre there is a working farm which has been scaled down, although a small number of sheep and cattle are still bred. In January 2008 a Zoo licence was granted, which enables the Centre to continue to grow & evolve the collection of animals. The Centre is now split into two sections, one being the visitor attraction and the other being business & retail units.
There really is something for everyone, as well as animals & activities, there’s indoor & outdoor play areas to discover and explore, so it’s always farmtastic fun whatever the weather!!
