I like this place. The animals are rescued. It's dainty & at a cost of £4 per adult is a great day out. They have some racoons which are amazing! I loved how up close I could see them. I also loved that each animal had a story and it was printed there for you to read. Where they came... More

What a super place to visit, especially for this falconry experience. Will be returning! Ideal even for someone on their own.

I purchased an "Experience" voucher, which we used recently on a baking hot Friday afternoon. There was a small group of 3 couples and we had everything explained - in a friendly and professional manner - before the birds were brought out. The first was a beautiful Kestrel, followed by a cute Barn Owl, then a couple of raptors and... More

Really nice to take this kids for a day of easy entertainment. After being asked to babysit last minuet I found this little gem behind a garden centre. It has a great park and some lovely animals for the children to see. It isn't as big as I expected but is nice and the staff are really friendly! Highly recommend... More

We went to Gentleshaw for Fathers Day and had a lovely time. It isn't a full day, but there is plenty on offer - animals, garden centre, play area, little train and cafe. The staff were very friendly and allowed my 2 year old to stroke a skunk which was very exciting! It is all very very reasonably priced -... More

Booked the zookeepers experience for my daughters 6th birthday.

There is a train that you can ride on for a small charge of one... More
