My kids wife and I really like this sort of petting zoo type attraction. The animals all look happy and my kids love holding the small creatures. Would recommend quite highly 😀

Must visit. Made me happy seeing the place and the happy animals. The meerkats were really funny and playful.

Not only a variety of animals they have many children's play areas spread through the site. For £1 a bag of food is available to give the children an opportunity to feed many of the animals. The Cafe and gift shop were both reasonably priced.

Unfortunately we were underwhelmed by our experience. The staff who did the meet and greets looked like they would rather be anywhere else and interacted minimally with the children and adults alike. There is the potential for the park to be good with some more...More

Yes. The grounds are mainly gravel based so depending on the wheelchair may be tricky to push in places, but that said the grounds are mainly flat so good for prams/wheelchairs etc. It's a lovely day out when sunny!
