First piece of advice - take your time here. If you want a place where you rush round everywhere then this isn't the park for you. If you want to find and explore everything, be prepared to take it slowly. We easily spent 2 and a half hours here, including time for tea and cake in the cafe. There's a... More

We were on our way for a few days in Scarborough when, distracted by the sign to it, we decided to call in and break our journey, and were we glad! Started in 2004, it has clearly become a labour of love, and I suppose most of the profits made have been re-invested in making improvements. The variety of animals... More

Visited here Sunday morning - it's a probably only a hour or so to go around unless it's a nice day and you take a picnic, but it's well worth a trip. Clean and well maintained , cute little cafe / gift shop. My son enjoyed feeding the goats, ponies, donkeys and alpaca . He also enjoyed timing himself on... More

We've been here twice and enjoyed it both times. This time we came with our three year old and 9 month old grandchildren. There are lots of birds and animals to see - and feed - and sensory and secret gardens. The animals and gardens appeared well cared for and there is a children's playground, which the three year old... More

We came with ourloc on a whim and because I am an animal lover. Upon reading several reviews we were very cautious and uninspired. So we arrived the owner seemed very off hand and. The park it's self is on an average scale it took 45 mins going around and we had a drink at the cafe which all in all... More

We came on a quiet Thursday with an eight year old and a six year old. Both enjoyed their time seeing the birds and animals. Most time was spent at the playground where we used the picnic tables for our lunch. All in all, a relaxed sort of place, family run and friendly. Certainly looks very well kept and everything...

What a great little find! Much larger than we expected with lots of animals to feed! The secret garden and sensory garden really entertained our 2 year old, as did the little play park. The only negative for me was the swing that was covered in wet bird poop! If wipes or something could be provided close by visitors could... More

Went here on Tuesday with my family. It was a lovely sunny day so we got to see lots of the animals and enjoy these shine too. All animals looked happy and looked after. Good toilet and hand washing facilities. Lots of information on animals, birds and plants. Little cafe and souvenirs. Nice little visit.

the bird garden is a lovely place to go for adults and children you can spend as much time as you like feeding the animals, sitting in the lovely gardens or having a coffee in the café, a very nice day.
