loved the animals. great to get up close to the wallabys and loved the cute little racoons. Very hilly so need to be fit to walk around! Good food served in the tea room. Kids will love the dinosaurs and the sealion display. Great views of Combe Martin near the alpacas enclosure. Worth a visit if in the area.

Visited here with my 4 year old son and 5 year old niece. Having been a few years ago I knew what to expect, but we all loved all of the new additions to the dinosaurs! Dinosaur valley is fab, kids loved it, loved seeing all the animals. Don't think we would be able to stretch the visit to a... More

Visited this attraction with my family including my 1 year old daughter. She loved seeing all the animals. The wife especially loved the sea lion show and I thought the £25 meet and greet was excellent value for money. Lots to see for all the family. Entry isn't cheap but you can easily spend a full day here. Be warned,... More

Fantastic selection of animals, many rescued. Paths were hard to negotiate for my 18month old grandaughter and my partially sighted husband could not venture alone. Very poor access for disabled.

A family day out here can be expensive . Seventy pounds - four adults and two kids. We have been going there years , and its now getting dated . You have the chance to feed animals and the new baby Gibbon now. Some good shows, - the kids know no different and the CMWDP have half price entries sometimes.... More

This was the second time I've been here, roughly around 8-10yrs apart. So much changed from the 1st time. There is alot more animals to see now, the park has expanded and has some stunning views of both inside & outside the park. I especially enjoyed how you can be up close to the animals. You can feed Wallabies for... More

Children love it, definitely stay to watch the dinosaurs move and then watch the free parrots roam around. i think the birds may need bigger cages though as they have a big wing span and they should be in massive cages so they are free to roam.

We visited this little zoo in late September, it was a warm sunny day and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised, most of the enclosures were suited to the animals they contained, the otters for instance were in a valley so could be viewed from above there was a natural stream running through and plants, trees, rocks...

This is my first time visiting this park. It was OK. Nothing overly exciting or thrilling. the highlighy of the day is feeding the wallabies. But at 50p a bag you only get about 8 pellets. the whole park needs a revamp and some serious TLC. And the bug world and ancient egypt bit was really not great. I can... More

I just have to say what a great day out we had here with our two grandchildren, one 6 and one 11. The Dinosaurs and where they are placed in the woodland valley look very good and the sensors trip and make them move and roar as you approach them. The animals all had lovely enclosures and we had some... More
