Child and Dog friendly farms to visit in Yorkshire

Updated: Sep 26, 2020

Surely, you cant take a dog to the farm? Well, that's where you're wrong. We have found some of the best dog friendly farms in Yorkshire where you can visit with your children and the dog (on a lead!)

A firm favourite in our community group, Boston Park Farm is ideal for younger children and is all dog friendly. Meet a wide range of animals, visit the Maize Maize, have fun in the playground or stop for a coffee in the cafe. Free car park and toilets on site. Ideal farm day out. (Dogs not allowed in the indoor animal barn).


A hidden gem when visiting the East Coast. Meet a wide range of animals and birds in this great little farm and animal park. All well spaced out, buggy friendly and a great playground for the kids. Relax in beautiful gardens or stop by their coffee shop for a pit stop. Free car park and toilets.

A great farm and fully accessible for children and dogs on leads. They are welcome everywhere except the cafe (outdoor seating available). Lots of animal to see, a pumpkin patch (Autumn) and play barn (dogs not allowed) and cafe.

A working farm in Leeds, open 365 days a year for the public to visit the animals, gardens, and flourishing woodland. Also have activity booklets for you to use whilst visiting the farm, see website for details. Cafe and toilets on site. (Dogs on leads at all times)


Ok, so Dogs are not allowed in the actual farm bit however they do have kennels if you are able to leave your dog whilst you view the animals. Failing that, there is still plenty to do in the vast parkland that surrounds it. The 'Lucky Pup' cafe is also fully dog friendly with its own doggy menu too.


It has a few animals (its a working farm) but it does have a tasty cafe and a decent farm shop to visit too. Free car park.

Ok, so I am cheating a little as its not exactly Yorkshire, but it looks a great fun day out. Dogs are allowed everywhere except the play area and indoor tea room (outside seating available).

Clutching at straws, but dogs are also allowed nearby in the following:

Although dogs are not allowed in the farm, playground or shop. They can access the walled garden and a section of the cafe. They are also allowed in the pet store which has small animals and fish to browse. There are also a few dog friendly pubs in the village too.

Again, no dogs allowed in the farm bit however there is plenty of parkland to explore, ducks to feed by the stream and a playground (gated). Dogs are also allowed in the cafe.

(Always check destination information before travelling due to COVID restrictions)
