The Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park is well worth a visit, for adults and children. We enjoyed the day out.

spent a full day here today. £13.99 per adult £11.99 per child, bit cheaper for a family ticket and if you prebuy online its cheaper again. Definitely not for those with mobility problems as its built into the valley but if you start your trip clockwise by turning right at the entrance most of the steeper hills will be declining...

We visited on a very wet day in July. Our 7 year old daughter has just started to take an interest in dinosaurs so she loved it. We enjoyed seeing the animals and walking back through the wood where the dinosaurs were and the sea lions were lovely too. It would have been nice to have a covered area to... More

Ok for a couple of hours, but I wouldn't go for a full day. Loads of animals and the dinosaurs are great, but a little worn out. Plenty for the kids to do and it has a great indoor play area with cafe area. Very reasonably priced 😀. Great fun.

The only reason I didn't give this full marks is how very, amazingly steep the place is! It's actually difficult to walk up and down to the car park! Plus the price of food on site. BRING A PICNIC! Other than that, the place is great and I wouldn't let those 2 issues stop me visiting again. The attractions are... More

This was our one extravagant day out during a weeks holiday in North Devon. Being a family of six day trips can be costly and sometimes you are left wondering if the money you spent was worth it! On this occasion it absolutely was! Plenty to do, especially if you have children who love animals and getting up close and... More

We spent 4 hours here and really enjoyed it. The sea lion show is superb and not to be missed and the dinosaur forest is impressive. We weren't expecting much at lunchtime but the food was actually quite good.

Great day out with dinosaur mad children. Need to be able to get up and down some pretty steep hills, quite tricky with a pushchair! Worth it though for the walk through the park and the views, kids really enjoyed it so was worth it :)

Went with 2 kids, 4 and 5. They both loved it. Lots to do with plenty of animals and hands on shows/events. The indoor play area is only half finished, but when complete this will be a great addition for times of inclement weather. The little cafe was OK, reasonably priced with OK food. Don't miss the Seal Lion show,... More

My 7 year old loved all the dinosaurs, the older 2 loved the sea lion show. Food a bit pricey. Everyone enjoyed from young to old including a teenager. The only thing is its extreamly steep.
