In light of recent government announcements regarding measures to control the spread of COVID-19, it is with great sadness and regret that we announce our decision to temporarily close Sacrewell until further notice.


Spring is always one of the busiest and most exciting times on the farm so it’s particularly disappointing that we won’t be able to welcome visitors in person to share this season with us. We will do our very best to keep you all up to date through social media – we are currently in the height of lambing season so keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages for news of our latest arrivals.


We might also find that the local wildlife makes the most of these quieter times. Whilst the visitors are away we’ll be letting some of our grassed areas grow longer and encouraging more wildflowers which could attract even more butterflies, birds and animals. Again, we’ll be updating our social media to let you know what we’ve spotted recently.


As many of you will be keen to support your children’s learning, we hope to arrange regular Facebook live talks or video clips from the farm on subjects such as growing vegetables, animal husbandry and maybe even a few campfire tales.


We are truly grateful for all the support that our amazing visitors and pass holders give to our charity and we know that you will continue to support The William Scott Abbott Trust through the difficult period we are all facing.


We will extend current Annual Pass and Spring to Summer Passes by the length of the time that we are closed for.


For those with bookings, please bear with us as we endeavour to contact you individually over the coming weeks.


We would like to take the opportunity to thank our outstanding team for their ongoing hard work and understanding during this difficult time. If you wish to contact us, please email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.


If you would like to further support The William Scott Abbott Trust, please purchase an anytime admission ticket that can be used within the next 12 months or a 13-month Sacrewell Annual Pass. Both can be purchased online at


Be safe, be healthy, look after each other – we can’t wait to see you at Sacrewell again soon.
