A brilliant day out for the whole family. Lots to do, worth looking at their timetable of feeding the animals first. Great outside and inside play areas. Enjoyed the tractor ride. Very good value for money, take a picnic or eat at the restaurant.

Lovely place, quite hit and miss but the facilities have the potential to be amazing. It does annoy me classing it as Poole though as miles out and on the purbeck region

Defiantly more suited for the under 10's but an enjoyable time spent there. Feeding the deer is recommended.
