We arrived and was greeted by heavy smoke and f as liking ash, the animal are in need of larger enclosure as some of the chickens and hens look so cramped, the donkey and horses are in need of care. We won't be going again wished we had gone somewhere else what a complete waste of money

This staff friendly park really hit the mark for my four year old daughter. A big thing for me is customer service. Every one whom we encountered was friendly and polite. The animals were all in good environments and each looked in good condition. The Red Deer stag was a firm favourite of ours and he was very tame and... More

We spent time walking around the farm and spoke to some of the staff who were all very friendly. We fed lots of the animals which my son enjoyed. We booked a table in the café... More

Compared to other similar attractions, this park provided just enough stimulation for our very active grandsons.

Really nice place, very friendly and plenty of friendly animals, goats, sheep, horses, emus, meerkats to look and stroke. Nice place to take a picnic or eat in the cafe and a few good adventure playgrounds for the kids to climb around

everything was made to be interesting and accesesable for the girls. we wandered round at our own pace and had a lovely day. Unfortunatley the weather was not at its best but that is not an issue. Would like to go back in fine weather though which I hope it will be in August 2015 when we visit again.

Visited here because it was a Groupon Deal. When we visited on 15 November 2014, it was raining & foggy. The kids enjoyed seeing and feeding the animals. Because it was wet the play areas were wet, they weren't able to make full use of the facilities. The cafe has no toilets or place to wash hands. So if you... More
