Tweddle Farm was established in 2004 by owners Peter and Denise. Shortly after moving onto the farm with their two sons, Daniel and Matthew, the creating of Tweddle Children’s Animal Farm began. Along with help from friends and family, the farm quickly become the well known North East attraction that it is today. Being home to a large variety of animals, every day is an exciting adventure which we love to share with our customers.
