Went here with a class on Reception children. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. So much to see. A lot of what's to see is outdoor. The butterfly house isn't very big but it is enough considering how hot those places are. Cafe and picnic area to suit all needs.

We went on a fairly busy day in the school holidays but it still wasn't too hectic, though less people in the butterfly house might've been appreciated. We loved going into the lemur enclosure, seeing butterflies emerge out of their crysallis and the flying parrots were spectacular. Not sure our one year old fully appreciated it so we may go...

Plenty going on with a decent selection of small animals and birds. Very good play area for when they get bored of the animals. Food in restaurant very good. Reasonable price at just over £40 for 2 adults and 3 children.

We visited today for the first time as on holiday in the area. Parking was easy in open field just outside main gates. Staff were all lovely, helpful and informative....especially Abigail who my son loved as she drove the big tractor and he got to sit in the drivers seat for photos. The animals were all well kept in large... More

We went as a family including grandparents well kept and staff engaging with kids. Lots of animal interaction held about 7 different animals which my daughter loved. Prepared food for meerkats and limas then watched them eat it. Food reasonably priced play area good. Would recommend a visit

We have been coming here with our family for the past 9 years and every time we visit it gets better and better. Brought the grandparents along today and have to say they were impressed with how it's changed over the years. Medieval crafts and activities filled the day. Bird show, Punch and Judy, tractor rides. But my 8 year... More

We have been here many times over the years and it has expanded and got better each time. It is a lovely place to visit for every one, especially for children. It isn't on the cheap side to enter and could do with a few more animal varieties but couldn't fault it apart from that. We didn't eat in the... More
