We offer a day service for individuals of all backgrounds, age and abilities to enjoy the beauty of Crockermoor, while offering the chance to learn new skills and gain therapeutic benefits through a variety of nature and animal based activities.

We recognise that individuals needs can vary, so are able to offer both group and 1-1 sessions to best suit you. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions or to find out more about how The Shire @ Crockermoor can work for you.

We aim to provide our guests with the opportunity to learn a large variety of skills, making the most of the beautiful countryside we are based in. Activities available range from practical skills such as general farm maintenance, fencing, walling and carpentry, to gardening and horticulture, agriculture and floristry; there really is something for everyone.

We have a wide range of animals here at The Shire @ Crockermoor, from agricultural animals such as pigs and sheep, to domestic animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs and even home-hatched chicks, giving a unique opportunity to both learn about animal husbandry and benefit from animal and nature-based therapy.

If animals aren’t for you, we also have vintage farm tractors and machinery in need of renovation, providing the opportunity for guests to restore it back to its original state and learn more about these machines.

Whatever your interests, we hope that The Shire @ Crockermoor can offer a chance to learn new skills, develop an interest, restore wellbeing or simply connect with others. We accept both private and professional referrals – please get in touch to find out more. Please use our email to get in contact and arrange a site visit.
