We recently visited this place whilst on a family holiday and I was very impressed. Its £10 entry for adults (which I thought was reasonably priced compared to many attractions nowadays) and all of the money goes towards keeping the sanctuary going. There’s a wide...More

This place is brilliant. Bit of a nightmare to get to though. Very tight roads. Cheap enough to get in. 50p per bag of animal feed. Honestly I’d pay £1. That’s what I’m used to. There’s lots of animals here and a lot just roaming...More
