Not sure what I expected really but was disappointed. The garden centre mostly consisted of dead/dying plants. The pens for the ducks, chickens, geese etc have definitely seen better days. On the plus side my little one enjoyed feeding the goats, pigs and cows.

This is a really nice place if you're looking for something to do with the children on a weekend, for you can buy food (at an incredibly affordable price - £1 for feed, 50p for seed) with which to feed the various animals they have...More
