We visited during the Easter holidays. We got here within an hour of opening and it was quite quiet but got very busy later on. There was plenty of parking and entrance was reduced to £5 per person so really good value for money. There was a great little pets corner with free running chickens & a peacock, a small... More

This is such a great experience for young children it should not be missed. It’s all a bit rustic which adds to the charm. Don’t expect pristine lawns, flashy rides and plastic walls. This place feels real. We arrived walking past very young lambs that kindly bleated when our three year old granddaughter spoke to them!! Then into the site... More

Had a lovely day here for Mother's Day. Lots to do, mums got free entry which was a nice touch! Great choice of food available in the restaurant, although would have been nice if the Roast Dinners had started Mother's Day weekend instead of the following weekend but that's just me been picky. The animals all seemed really happy and... More

I have been for a couple of times now for lunch as it is local. Whilst the place is over run with children which is not a problem, and the staff worked very hard cleaning the awful mess that was left behind, the price of the food was very over priced and you got very little for your money. I... More

Great way to entertain the children on a weekend or during the holidays. Lots of farm type animals, well spread out and plenty of space for picnics etc as well as great ways to tire out the kids.

We were nvited to a friends wedding. Very friendly staff, the reception was run like clockwork. The staff seemed to be informing the bride and groom of all the timings. The food presentation was nice.,although it was just before Christmas there was a warm atmosphere and very pleasant. Really lovely setting..

Not really an animal park when there are only cows, sheep and a few farm animals. Very over priced. Lovely views and nice to walk for fresh air. Food very expensive.

My daughter held her wedding here, just before Christmas, what an amazing day. We were greeted at the door by Jason, who showed us to our room, then gave us the tour and a run through of how the day would proceed.
