Beautiful but steep. Our 3yr old loved the dinosaur animatronics. Top tip: rather than walk back up to the car park, send Dad and gave pick you up in front of the house, at the exit!

The admission prices were quite reasonable and the day out was fantastic. All the animal enclosures are clearly well looked after and the staff were great. Our highlight was the sea lion show - check it out. Be careful if you don't like walking as the park is in a valley so you are always climbing up and down.

Lovely park! Yes it is on a steep hill, however not as steep as I thought it would be. The talks about Meerkats, Otters & Sea Lion (show) were interesting and informative without being patronising. I can only assume the Wolf talk and the leemur talk were just as good but we didn't attend those. Animals look weel cared for... More

Had a great day, the park really is brilliant such a great idea having dinosaurs, it is a bit steep in places so would suggest a few seats to rest and warning signs saying steep incline etc, but on the whole had a great day thank you.

I went with a 9 and 4 year old and we had a lovely day there. Far more animals than we were expecting and we loved the dinosaur area which had a real jungle feel to it. Be warned there are a lot of hills to climb as you go around so it is not suitable for anyone that has... More

Great day out, plenty to do both outdoors and indoors. Catch the talks/ shows for added interest. Animatronic Dinosaurs were fab but some smaller children were frightened.

A nice place to visit with kids, mind though the whole park us very steep! My son loved the dinosaurs and I liked them too. My daughter wasn't so keen so daddy and son went round the dinosaurs twice whilst we went round the animals. She loved the wallabies and even fed and stroked one. The otters and baby meerkats...

Now having been to Coombe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park many times over the past 20 odd years I have seen many changes and the park seems to have grown and developed over these years. You can see that the enclosures have grown and grown and even though I still miss the snow leopards there is far more to see... More
