We have attended twice recently and used the restaurant which is fine for regular food and drinks. The best bit was taking my son to see the Birds of Prey experience - superb and very professionally done by James. He knows his stuff and involves everyone present. There is a good variety of birds which usually culminates with the superb... More

We decided to take a picnic for Father's Day, we sat down near the children's play area so my two daughters could go and play. Unfortunately my youngest daughter wouldn't even go near the park due to the noise of two strimmers coming from it. At times it was like the children trying to play, were in the way of... More

Great play area for my 3 year old who loved the big owl. The walks were varied in size and there was something interesting round every corner. The cafe was OK, nothing special and priced reasonably but next time will bring a picnic as lots of good places to sit. Clean and car parking cheap at £2.50 for the day.... More

The Falconer who did the presentation was first class and obviously knew his stuff, I do apologize, but neither of us can remember his name, but he was a young guy, maybe Tom? There was a large group of... More

The weather was good which meant that parking was very difficult and the cafe was totally overwhelmed. We decided to eat lat as the queue were very large at lunch time. Went... More
