Coast of the Island, situated on the outskirts of the pretty yachting village of Seaview, you will discover this hidden gem, the Isle of Wight's leader in hands-on wildlife experiences and ranked Number 1 out of 98 Isle of Wight Attractions on Trip Advisor! Getting mobbed by Wallabies and Meerkats might send some people running but animal enthusiasts will be in seventh heaven - in absolute style - at this multi-award winning attraction that is set in stunning open parklands with a backdrop of fabulous sea views. The main focus is on involvement where guests are encouraged to join in with the nine daily wildlife events that are led by a dynamic animal care team who deliver fun hands-on presentations and will introduce you to the most amazing characters and a vast array of unbelievably tame feathered and furry friends! Our licensed ' Seaview Bay ' cafe serves locally sourced ingredients such as fresh Bembridge crab sandwiches accompanied with a chilled glass of wine or relax on our outdoor patio areas with stunning views. Home made light lunches and delicious strawberry cream teas feature on the menu together with an extensively stocked gift shop with a ' new refurbished look ' for 2014! Personal, bespoke V.I.P. Packages include one-on-one encounters with penguins where meeting ' Dippy' the famous Isle of Wight penguin has to be top of your bucket list! Have a private meeting with the 'maddest mischievous meerkat mob' or book a behind the scenes Keeper For A Day or Junior Wildlife Experience - the ultimate wildlife treat! You can never be too spoilt! Offering excellent value for money this is a magical day out for all the family and a wildlife extravaganza not to be missed so, don't leave the best until last and definitely don't leave the Island without visiting this exclusive Wildlife Getaway! less

Beautifully recreated models of Godshill and Shanklin Old Villages as they were in the 1920's and 30's. Passionate about details, the models are true representations of the houses, cottages and pubs you can still see in the 'real world'. The gardens are packed with conifers and shrubs that will make you want to dash home and start gardening...our customers tell us we inspire them or that they would like to take one of our gardeners home with them! less
