Staff are helpful and friendly and the kids loved it. But as adults we were able to see beyond the fur and feathers to the structure of the premises which was like many in the UK needing a bit of attention. In their defence I admit that having visited Loro Parque on the Canary Islands it set such a very... More

We visited today and we enjoyed every moment. Well worth £4 per adult and it was great to see happy and healthy animals that were obviously very well cared for. I liked how it had a background story of each animal, it gives them each an identity which I really liked. Staff seem friendly and at very caring about the... More

We went on Father's Day and although busy it wasn't manic. Good selection of birds and animals, reasonably priced. Tea shop in garden centre sells delicious home made cakes!

We had bought a Groupon voucher some time ago for the falconry experience and nearly wasted it as the expiry date was rapidly approaching. However we did manage to fit it in and we are so glad we did as we both had a superb day out. We arrived early and had time for a decent lunch in the adjoining... More

Rubbish. Think again if you think you are booking an hour long falconry lesson for you or a couple, as your hour is shared with loads of others who have also booked a lesson, therefore time you have is very little. Knock off more time for them waffling on and it wasn't worth the bother. surprised to see someone was... More

We visited today for a falconry experience with our 2.5yr old daughter and I cannot praise the staff and the centre enough. All of the staff were very kind and considerate to our little girl and the centre is extremely clean and the animals look well cared for. Thank you so much. We will be visiting again!

We found this attraction by chance while out visiting garden centres. We all agreed that it should be better signposted. The collection of birds and animals was very good and the fact that most of them were rescues was uplifting. The lemurs were very noisy, the raptors were magnificent and the singing dog was cute. A good experience and a... More

So lovely to see animals in such a clean and careing environment. The sanctuary is set in the grounds of a garden centre. We booked the zoo keeper experience for our 6 and 10 year olds and they had ball. Feeding owls, lemers, spending time with Samson the half wolf half dog, holding snakes and cleaning out the bird pens.... More
