My three children enjoyed a 'Feeding the Meerkats' encounter and LOVED it. The park is very well cared for, with animals roaming freely. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly.

The experience starts in the car park. The view is amazing!! The kids loved all the hands on experience's from feeding the penguins to feeding the parrots and Meerkat. Lots of animals that all seem very tame from the wallaby's to meerkats. Lovely picnic areas. Cafe does hot meals, sandwiches, cakes, teas and coffees. Fancy ice teams etc. Good day... More

Really nice place, lots to see, very open plan, can walk in and pet the pigs/sheep etc in their enclosures and the wallabies roam free outside to pet. Meerkats, otters, and those things that look like llamas are some of the things here! :)

A really lovely morning with the kids who enjoyed the variety of birds and animals but especially the fact that you can get close and have the ducks eating out of your hands. I was impressed at how clean and well maintained all the enclosures and facilities were, staff were very friendly and informative. Thanks for a lovely day!

We loved it so much that we went back the next day! It was great fun feeding the thousands of ducks, swans and guise. The wallabies where just the cutest, friendliest animals there. It's different to your normal zoo, but being surrounded by thousands of hungry ducks is just one of the cutest things ever! If you are scared of... More

I love petting zoos and this one has to be the most interactive of all of them. If you buy duck food be prepared to be chased by millions of ducks. Make sure you go when its feeding/talk time. We managed to time a good run of feedings and talks in the afternoon: wallaby feeding (with petting), meerkat talk (no... More

It is a lovely family day out but is mainly ducks and birds. There are a few other animals but expected more variety of animals from the brochure. It was lovely stroking the wallabies and kids will really enjoy feeding most of the birds. The animal selection is very random and is a little bit unlike the wildlife but not... More

There isnt a lot when you really look at it for the money (75p for duck food which is a must approx £27 for 2 adults and a 9 yr old) but the children love the hands on stuff. My grandaughter loved it and kept revisiting her favourite animals the reptile house was closed due to flooding (no ones fault... More
