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

Started taking my sons here about 20 years ago. Now my daughter and step sons love it just as much. Be prepared to wear boots and get dirty, it's an animal rescue centre. I have now adopted my 2nd pet from them. It's great to see the animals all given one to one attention, the staff love the animals like... More

This is a rescue is run by caring compassionate people who spend their whole lives taking in unwanted animals and looking after them and trying to find them loving homes. Those animals that cannot be rehomed, stay there for the remainder of their lives. This rescue relies on donations and what it can raise on entrance fees. Those people who... More
