We visited this wonderful sanctuary during the Easter break 2018. We found the staff to be friendly and knowledgeable about the monkeys they care for, each monkey has its own story about how and why it came to be in the sanctuary.
The whole family enjoyed the forest paths and the children's play area was safe and fun, with a covered area full of activities for colder days.
There are plenty of areas and benches for picnics but a stop at the tree top cafe (which incidentally you can access from outside of the sanctuary) is well worth it and will not leave you disappointed. Serving a range of fresh homemade vegan dishes from old favourites like jacket potatoes, hotdogs and beans on toast to sweet potato burgers and three bean chilli.
A great family day out, topped only by us being pleasantly surprised to find that as we live in Cornwall our admission fee allows us to visit the sanctuary as many times as we wish in 12 months.

The site is right on in the coast and is a lovely spot. There are not many enclosures but that’s not really the point. This is not a zoo. You need to spend time to stop and stare and listen to the staff who are looking after the animals because they are very knowledgeable and provide detailed stories about each of the rescued monkeys.

There is a wildlife path and pond, a cafe and gift shop as well as a couple of play areas. Well worth a couple of hours.

We visited the Monkey Sanctuary over the Bank Holiday. £27 for a family of four we thought was fair especially as it is a charity. The staff were helpful and informative. The only thing that let it down was the cafe which was a shame and I would avoid.

Visited the sanctuary on Saturday 31st March. What a delightful place. Had a coffee in tree top cafe which was a good start to our day. We headed down and saw lots of monkeys and listened to lots of talks. My grandchildren enjoyed face painting and play area. We had more lovely coffee from tea shop and little shop was full of ideally priced goods. Especially as I had fun choosing our cuddly monkeys and other lovely goods. We decided to have lunch at tree top cafe which was lovely and the young man (think he was called Ben?) who served us was a delight! Very helpful and couldn't of done more for us. Clean and specious. Will go back again especially now we have our free pass!! Thank you for a super day.

Lovely place to visit while staying in Looe. The staff are knowledgeable about the animals they care for and the monkies all looked happy and content.
Coffee and cake also available at a reasonable price. Would definitely recommend a visit.
