Staff friendly and welcoming. They are brilliant with children. There is always a danger of being bitten but they teach children how to feed the animals with hands flat. Really well run set up Worth visiting

Excellent day out for all the family. Plenty to do and see. Loads of animals to look at donkey rides and a bumpy tractor ride all adds to the fun.

We spent a great day here. My daughter loved feeding all the animals and giving them all lots of cuddles. The tractor ride and donkey rides were also great and only cost £1 each. Cafe was cheap enough and food was nice. Would definitely return
