Older kids love the play park and there is a lovely area for picnics. The gift shop is reasonably priced and the dinosaur exhibition is a nice extra. All in all it's a good... More

A lovely place with lots of interesting birds and animals (like a small zoo). There is a great play ground there too. The owner is hands on so you will find him around the place and he will chat to you and tell you anything you want to know about the animals etc. You can even handle them if you... More

We went there today. That's place is getting bigger and more animals to see. Very enjoyable to walk and see for us adults & young children. Great for my small children to see everything on animals. Amazing to see their faces. We would deffo come back there again. Love there.

When we arrived I definitely had my doubts about what we were walking into, I was with my partner and our young baby. When we got closer to the actual entrance I was very surprised at how big the place was. Plenty of animals to walk around and see, good place to bring children for an hour or two. Definitely...

The best zoo I've ever been at! You know the owners take pride in what they do! It's clean and tidy would highly recommend to visit! Butterflies where beautiful! the owner came over to show us some of the animals in a closer view and had more information on them! Well priced, All Friendly people and will defiantly be back!
