No indoor play centre as you find at a lot of family centered attractions which would have been handy to let kids let of steam but if no rainy weather there was excellent outdoor play areas . More of a zoo than a farm park which made it more interesting , kids liked the lemurs , butterfly house and meerkats... More

An interesting wild life venue with fun and birds involved in free flight displays. Something for everyone with a cafe with reasonable prices. We had some laughs and enjoyed the afternoon on a sunny warm day.

Took 18 month old grandson excellent day out, Butterfly house is well set out and well maintained, animals look well looked after. Although the grounds are not as big as I expected it's a great place to take younger children, my opinion kids older than 7/8yrs would probably be bored after a couple of hours. The shows/displays are ok nothing... More

My three year old granddaughter and I have had a a 'season ticket' for the past two years. We often pop in just to see the Meerkats on our way home, or stay for most of the day. We have had many magical moments together here, moments I treasure. The site is exceptionally clean and well maintained with various activities... More

Excellent place to visit. Had visited other center before it closed but this was better. Plenty to see, especially the meerkats and lemurs. Cafe served acceptable snacks. Only drawback, four coach loads of infant school kids there so had to avoid at all costs.

We visited with my 11 and 7 year old children. We were there for most of the day with plenty to keep us occupied. The live displays were the kids faves, and the playground was a hit too!
