We went here for the day as a recommendation from a colleague. Myself and my husband had the most enjoyable time and our son, a very active 21 month old loved it! A great place to go and your supporting an amazing charity.

This is a farm and visitors have to remember this. Its not an adventure park. Having said that there is a lot of fun for families. Whether its the animals, the soft play area or the 2 x adventure playgrounds kids will find this fun for the whole day. There is also a small woodland balance experience. Mainly for kids... More

Can easily spend all day there as there are so many things to see and do. All the staff are helpful and friendly. Went with a 6 and 8 yr old and both had constant fun. Also took them aged 3 and 5 multiple times. They have never been bored there. Well worth an annual family pass.

We took our granddaughter , who is 22 months, for a day out. She loved it! She was able to touch some animals, which was a real adventure. The site is not too big and she was able to walk round all the time. Plenty of hand wash facilities which is good. Outside the paid area is a good restaurant... More

We went here to see the old car display thing, which the centre was hosting, and not really the animals. To be honest, I thought £10.50 per adult was pricey. Can't remember the children's prices and I don't think there was a combined ticket but I could be wrong. I can see why families like it as the kids can... More

We had such a lovely day here and it's for such a good cause. We were amazed at the size of this place and the fantastic setting. Blessed by the sunshine it couldn't have been more perfect. We took a picnic and sat in the grounds watching children of all ages having fun on the climbing equipment all clean and... More

We had a lovely day out here with our toddler. We went JUST before the entry fees changed to peak season, so feel that we got a great bargain. Lots and lots of animals to see, tractor rides and a great café. Just a shame they'd decided to close the giftshop before the rest of the centre had closed.

A really enjoyable day touring round seeing all the unusual animals there is a play area near the entrance for when parents need a sit down! Plenty of picnic areas to take your own picnics in and a restaurant serving very nice food.

I love the rare breeds centre. There's so much to do with all sorts of animals to see and touch, walks in the woods, and a variety of play areas. There's picnic spots and refreshment kiosks, or the fabulous restaurant. And the purpose of the place is to support adults with learning difficulties, some of whom very happily work on... More
