Whilst on holiday we visited the park and had a great couple of hours. Our 2 year old seemed to really enjoy himself, loving all the animals and specially feeding the different birds. Many types of birds roam around free and you can buy food for 50p a bag and feed them. Lots of different animals to look at and... More

Myself and my partner were staying in Devon for a long weekend and visited this place on the Sunday afternoon and it was just lovely. Such beautiful animals and much to my surprise most of the birds just rein free over the grounds allowing you to get close to them and feed them. When you pay for your tickets you... More

We went on our first visit today and really enjoyed ourselves. Lots of animals and amazing birds to see whilst having a walk around the park. Good facilities to cater for all ages and cafe, park and shop on site too. Took my 1 year old daughter and have signed up for membership. Can't wait to go back.

We visited here on a dull March day. The animals seem very well cared for. Their enclosures are spacious and clean. We were lucky enough to see and hold the armadillo. A very good experience! Loved our visit here, many thanks.

After reading some of the reviews from narrow minded people I was not sure if I was willing to part with £27, well it was worth every penny, my ten year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed herself as did myself and my wife, I love the fact it's not a corporate company trying to rip you off for everything! it's a...

We were at a loose end last week and drove past after stopping at Axminster for a coffee. I was a bit dubious at first, especially as it wasn't cheap and I had seen no literature on the holiday park we were staying at. It was a delight to see so many animals, obviously being well looked after and there... More

I visited for the first time whilst staying with my daughter . I have to say the animals all look physically healthy. But my only criticism is that a some animals were showing obvious signs of lack of mental stimulation due to being confined. Like the lovely armadillo he was running around in a repetitive pattern. His bed was clean... More
