The enclosures are too small for most of their animals, several animals seemed distressed and pacing. Small variety of species in a park that seemed to be badly planned and poorly built. Food outlets were awful and few

Fabulous little zoo. Very relaxed. Nice mix of animals. Uneven ground - a lot of tree roots. Very approachable staff with interactive sessions. Basic cafe but food okay. For me the big cats were my favourite, will be back.
