The drive to Bowland Wild Boar Park is lovely. We went on a lovely sunny autumn day and after looking at the website and the selection of animals, we expected a fun, busy, interesting day out. We paid £30 + for 4 adults and one...More

Went with High 5 which is a group that supports Less Able Children and their families and this was a day to remember. There was always an activity that suited them and no where was inaccessible so very highly recommended.

Good way to pass a few hours with the kids. Animal feeding and petting. Signage could do with improving.

Visited with our 4 yr daughter who enjoyed it, not the best day out we've had, but also not the worst. Thought the entrance fee was a bit overpriced and the cafe wasn't very clean.

Great for everyone, if wet Welles are the order of the day. Children enjoy the animals and when we went there the children were supervised holding little chicks. Take a picnic with you, that is ideal, there is a small shop etc

My husband wanted to come here to see the wild boar. He used a tramper to get around, a sort of mobility scooter, which was ideal for him. We enjoyed following the trails and seeing meerkats as well as the wild boar. Very nicely laid...More
