The centre was in a shocking state. I was very upset and disturbed by the behaviour of some of the animals (specially the zebras who had tried to gnaw their way out of their enclosure!). The place was overgrown with severe lack of PUBLIC health and safety, let alone the health and safety of the animals and birds kept there,... More

We have been twice this year and we love it. Yes the place could do with a tidy up, but the animals look happy and well cared for. Where else can you hand feed all the different types of animals at such little cost. I definetly look forward to visiting in the future with family and friends.

Initially me and my partner thought the park wasn't too bad, but as we went round we realised that a lot of the animals lacked enrichment, were showing signs of distress and some didn't even have basic requirements like water. The hatchery was the most unsettling area where we spotted a dying baby chick being eaten by other chicks, we... More

This animal park is a credit to the family who run it. We visited this week and met fantastic caring people with a park which is a credit to them. The animals are in good hands and all have the best care and attention. It is very sad to see those who choose to downgrade the park and suggest that... More

We saw it out of season so maybe not at it's best but even so some of the enclosures were in need of serious upgrading and investment. Left feeling sorry for the animals.

First off, I must say feeding seeing all the animals especialy the raccons, lemurs & marmosets was great and brought out 'the big kid' in us & being followed by a persitant robin was great. I do want to be fair, the place is very good value but, speaking as I find, it desperately needs some serious TLC. Younger kids... More

we went to the wildlife park a couple of days ago and thoroughly enjoyed it, our 2 year old had a great time with all the animals, and the elderly man that others have mentioned was absolutely brilliant with us . . . just because someone is quietly spoken doesn't mean he's bad at he's job . . . will...

Excellent wildlife park. Large enclosures, animals seem happy enough and are very friendly. £1 for a bag of food which can be used to feed the selection of ducks which is good fun and also the racoons which I loved. Cost is reasonable for the amount of time you will spend and how much you will enjoy visiting. Lemurs, marmosets... More

Really loved my visit today, especially feeding the geese, ducks and swans. They followed me constantly until I ran out of food! The barnacle geese were so friendly they let me stroke them. Some parts of the park could do with a clean up but apart from that it was a very enjoyable visit. The animals looked very healthy and... More
