As per my title, this place has really gone downhill, its dirty, broken, unkept. Information boards are missing. Lots of animals/birds not here anymore.

We visited on a Saturday in the summer holidays and it wasn't too busy. My children enjoyed seeing all the animals and it was good to know that some of the animals had been rescued. Some of the buildings need a bit of work such as the rabbit house and there are a lot of nettles and thistles about the... More

I have been here a few times over the years and you kind of expect things to improve over time. Yes they now have the tea house & decent toilets but i cant see much improving by way of the animal's area. Don't get me wrong, the animals had water & food but a lot of the animal sheds could... More

Visited today with two 4 year olds, and wished we hadn't! On arrival, noticed place seem over run with rats and stinging nettles! not ideal for little ones. Visited couple of years back and enjoyed a great afternoon and picnic there, luckily today hadn't made such plans, as not only is much of the park now fenced off, it is... More

I regulary pop into the tea rooms when I cycle past. The animals are entertaining and the staff are always friendly. I have adopted two lovely dogs from here, and I would have no hesitation of adopting again in the future or recommending others to do so. Whilst the adoption fees are on the high side, when you see where... More

The kids loved all the animals,good place for the youngsters to come into close contact with animals.Allow time to stroll round behind kids,and watch them enjoy themselves.

Went at the weekend, wary after some of the negative reviews here. Tons of animals. The turkeys,chix,geese were all free roaming...so ignore nonsense about crampt coops. The geese were a little aggressive as there were lots of eggs on nests, so all natural behaviour. As for rabbits, ferrets etc that were all in coops....all seemed clean and healthy. As for... More

I had already seen reviews stating this place was a bit of a dive and the animals were aggresive, however decided to keep an open mind and visit anyway. It took 10 mins to get round the whole palce, and my 3-y-o son, who loves animals and wildlife,was petrified to say the least! The ducks, swans, geese and chickens appear... More

Visited for a cup of tea and a look around. Nice cafe, tasty drinks and friendly staff. With regards to the animal rescue obviously they don't have big sponsors but the rabbits are a cause for concern. The majority are kept in cramped, tiny hutches, too small to get anywhere near recommended welfare standards. They have no hay which is... More
