And as for the wolves themselves, so special to see them up close and reacting with utter joy to... 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

My second visit to the UK Wolf Conservation Trust - (14th Sept) - wish I lived nearer!. Very interesting seminar, thrilling walk with wolves, (also 'wolf dogs' - on site for the seminar). Friendly, helpful and informative staff. A worthwhile experience that I recommend highly and I'm eager to return - in particular to see my own adopted wolf!. Thanks... More

We called in on our way to Newbury, not knowing what to expect. We spent a super couple of hours there. Learnt a lot about wolves - having known nothing. They are lovely creatures, v intelligent and great to see. If you are in the area, it is worth a detour.

Really limited attraction. A few pens of wolves and limited shop. Very costly to get in to open day and little to see or keep kids occupied. A real disappointment. Not at all good for us, perhaps others really impressed by a glimpse of wolf, for us it soon got boring.

The wolves are truly beautiful, and come up close. The staff were very committed, and know their stuff ! There are picnic areas or you can just sit and observe the wolves. I would recommend a visit, there are a few more animals there too, but we just went to see the wolves really.

Nice place, not too busy and set in beautiful countryside. Only open to public on a Wednesday. Admission was £8 adults and £5 child. The wolves are beautiful and come quite close. You can watch them being fed and the handlers are very knowledgeable and informative. There are a few other animals as well. Lots of picnic benches, plenty of... More

I took my husband on a walking with wolves day. It was an amazing experience and I was so impressed by the commitment and passion of the staff who clearly know their stuff and are willing to share their knowledge. The highlight of the day for me was standing 1.5 metres away from a 3 year old when he throw... More

Went on a predator day for my 50th birthday. What a day, the wolves are beautiful, it was such a fantastic experience I don't think I will ever forget it. The wolves are in huge enclosures, they are obviously very happy and content. The staff are great, they answer all your questions and you don't feel like it's a chore... More
