We went here during half term, intending to spend the morning here and then something else in the afternoon. There was so much to do and see here that we spent most of the day here and the other plans were abandoned. Beautiful gardens, wonderful countryside, idyllic river, Pensthorpe has them all in abundance. There is something for everyone. A... More

It has taken us a few years to get round to going mainly because of the price. However I was amazed by how well presented the whole place was. Very neat and tidy and clean, so pretty and with new things coming I can understand now why the price is what it is but I can actually now say it... More

Pensthorpe should not be missed...... Yes it is not cheap but when you can spend all day here it is wonderful value. The staff are excellent particularly in the superb play area where they are on hand if any little person has a mishap. In fact every member of staff we met had a smile for us and a good... More

A great place to wind down and experience nature at its best with your family. A huge variety of birdlife, both under cover viewing and out in the open, wild and in enclosures. Restaurant is varied and "proper coffee!!"

There was nothing to dislike about this project, there are many species of birds to be seen, although I was not too keen on the aviary but there are a number of bird species that you might not have seen close up without it. The grounds are well laid out and there are several pathways for various walks. If you... More

Pensthorpe is a real pleasure to visit. The wildlife are well looked after and the grounds perfect. AND we saw Turtle Doves. Such a pleasure.

The site consists of 3 main areas as far as I can tell. 1. A cafe. 2. A wildlife park. 3. Kids play area. The cafe serves a good selection of nice hot & cold food plus the usual teas, coffees and cold drinks and cakes. The wildlife park seems to have a wide array of birds and several miles... More

This attraction has greatly improved. There is still the beautiful wild life to enjoy, the Wensum walk, shop and cafe but in addition money has been spent on making this a great family attraction. The amazing children's play park with something for children of all ages is phenomenal,with a small stream running through. A great place to take the whole... More
