Lovely place to visit animals are so sweet . Staff are friendly and helpful. Would visit again. The Woodland Walk was a bit hairy with my Fathers mobility scooter but a lot of fun. Feeding the deer was the best experience very gentle and friendly.

We stopped off here as the weather was really nice and we wanted to make the most of the outside before our long drive home. It is a really nice little wildlife park with lots of animals to see and get up close to. It cost us £8.50 each which is more than reasonable considering the cost of other places... More

Leaflet looked fantatastic for a great day out. Arrived for a day visits today took 2 hrs to get there, not sign posted very well at all. very poor value for money. Park very run down. Animals looked like they needed feeding up more as very skinny and boney. Not many animals to see, leaflet very misleading. very few staff... More

We visited here with my 3 y.o., my husband and her grandparents. It didn't start brilliantly, with the last on the till totting up the amount we needed to pay mentally. It was only after entered the park the we realised we had been overcharged by £2. This didn't seem much but it was quite pricey anyway for park entrance,... More

Agree with other reviewers the place needs some TLC, but that costs money. The animals look cared for but it just did not have that wow factor. Granddaughter ( 3 ) was impressed though! Cannot understand why the café closed well before the centre did.

Well worth the money. A good variety of animals, peacocks running free, showing off their feathery displays. 'Masai Village' interesting. Gives information about Masai life. Nice woodland walk lading to the childrens' animal area, goats, minature horses etc. Didn't go in the cafe as we had brought a picnic with us, which have eaten in the cafe garden if we'd... More

Visited with the family this rather run down park. Looks like there has been little investment in the animal enclosures for many years with some in a poor state of repair. Family ticket and we stayed about an hour and saw everything. Not one for older children.

Had a nice couple of hours here the kids loved it. They had a bigger selection of animals then I expected. It is quite hard to find which is my only negative, but being in the middle of nowhere benefits the animals I suppose.
