We went today, as part of the open days "Visit Wednesday" and had an amazing time! This is not a large corporate establishment but a fairly informal place run by some extremely dedicated and passionate staff and volunteers. Free coffee and biscuits is available in the reception area, and there is a small and reasonably priced gift shop too. No... More

I took a friend to the wolf conservation last Saturday, 10th January 2015. She has wanted to meet wolves for many, many tears and she was really, really excited to go. Coffee and tea with biscuits were free when we arrived and we were able to ask questions from the very knowledgeable staff and volunteers. We were introduced to the... More

My wife and I heard about this place years ago through her studying. We finally got around to visiting and it met with our expectations. We booked in for a howl night and a walk with the wolves the following day. Although the weather was extremely cold wet and windy we really enjoyed ourselves and spending time in the company...

After a few hours 'Walking with the Wolves', I realised how little I know about the world. The wolves appear tame but, as the guide and handlers explained, they are 'socialised', having grown from birth to know humans. The leader was excellent in the way he gave interesting commentary. It was altogether a wonderful experience - and thank you to... More

I took my wife on a surprise visit and she absolutely loved it. I have to admit I did too. We found everyone that we encountered during our visit, very welcoming and very knowledgeable. They were all more than happy to take any questions that we had and in fact actively encouraged us to do so. There was tea and... More

If you love and admire the power and majesty of wild predators and want to spend some awesome time in close proximity, this is the place to go. I went for a photography day with a wolf walk and it was well worth the 300 mile round trip. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly and have... More

I adopted a wolf for my husband last Christmas. We had been on a walk with the late, great Duma back in 2011 but hadn't had the pleasure of visiting during one of their busy open days. Our trip fell during the October half term and we were pleased to see the place full of so many excited families. Once... More

Really enjoyed a super day at the wolf trust yesterday. Although the weather was wet , it didn't dampen our experience at all. The wolves are truly majestical. We learnt so much from the friendly, knowledgeable staff, who all go out of their way to make the experience so amazing. We came home with some super photos, which can be... More

I am an animal lover and was very excited to be visiting the wolves, I was not disappointed, the staff are very caring and knowledgeable. All the wolves are in beautiful condition and have large enclosures with enrichment activities to stop them becoming bored. The day we visited the wolves had meat encased in chunks of ice, so basically a... More
