Manor Farm - a great day out for kids and all the family.

Do you have a spare few hours to help us?

There are so many jobs at Manor Farm that simply could not be done without the generous support of our volunteers.  

We have a small but dedicated team of full time, paid workers, but we also need part-time volunteer help, either on a regular, weekly basis or seasonally, whatever fits in best for you.

On 1st September, 2013, we will no longer use the names Early Years Childcare Group and Manor Farm Animal Centre & Donkey Sanctuary and we will combine the businesses of East Leake Day Nursery & Manor Farm.

Our indoor and outdoor play areas offer something for everyone in all weathers. Enjoy our Young Farmers’ Play Barn and Fort Adventure Play Area. Explore our living willow structures; picnic and toddler play areas, pond dipping and our nature trails - all in a lake and woodland setting. Or take a moment or two to relax in the Gallery Tea Bar.

We have the most delightful donkeys as well as so many other wonderful animals - most of them rescued - and, of course, one of the largest collections of owls from around the World – you can even hold one!

Situated in acres of beautiful countryside on the Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire border and only a few miles from the M1, Nottingham, Leicester and Derby we are the perfect day out for people of all ages, from the young to the old.

And for children’s birthday parties, we can organise everything for that extra-special party with a difference.

Don’t forget to find us on Facebook and see what our visitors have to say about us.

Also why don’t you look in to our adoption scheme, you can adopt an owl or adopt a donkey and we even have goats and ponies too…
