Great place for an inexpensive trip. Free entry and £1 for a bucket of food is great. I like that it is larger good rather than seed or pellets so easier for toddlers to feed the animals. Food was okay in the cafe. Had spaghetti on toast - was definitely cheaper, thinner bread than I'd like but I can put... More

My grandchildren love going here to see the farm animals and feed them. There is an excellent cafe with home made food. The nursery has excellent plants. For a family there is something for everyone and on certain days the Owl section is open too.

My husband bought me a half-day's Owl Experience with Bob Morley as a birthday gift this year. I love owls and have always wanted a chance to get closer to them but nothing prepared me for these amazing few hours. Bob is incredibly knowledgeable and was on hand to impart lots of very interesting information about these beautiful creatures. I... More

We come once or twice a year to see the animals and feed them. My daughter enjoys it, as well as myself. Wouldn't recommend anything other than a snack in the cafe and drink. Although it never seems to be open when we go. Other than that I'd recommend to people with children

A friendly family run business with a lot going on. Run by a Farming family with farm animals, plants for the home and garden, gardening tools animal feed and a great little restaurant next door with home cooking and a separate family room so that us older people can have good food in a quiet atmosphere. With it being such... More

My wife loves owls so I booked the Encounter With Owls experience for her Birthday. What a fantastic day we had. Bob, the guy running it show, was excellent and very knowledgeable. We flew 4 owls in the field and a Kookaburra in the meeting room. Would certainly visit again and maybe try one of the bird of prey experiences.

The garden centre side of Lanes with the animals was ok. Admittedly it is slighty run down, but the children love feeding the animals and being able to touch them. The garden centre has a medium range of goods, and the staff were brilliant. If I could review that side if things I'd give it a 3 star. My biggest... More
