Wish we had done this sooner..passed it by so many times and wondered what it was...now we know it is one of the best value for money days out with young children in the area..lovely and clean...entertaining with the free flying birds...my kids loved it and so did I...the butterfly house is a real treat with the opportunity to feed the little parrots and hold the snakes and other creatures...as definite must do again...

“Great place for small children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Introduces children into a family day out, seeing wild-life and plants. Great for a raining day, and easy to walk round with toddlers.

“A great place to go”

We went here for the first time last year with great granddaughter and have been 3 times since. It is a great place to take young children, lots of small animals and birds plus games to play on.

“Great time and not just for the kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Spent the day here today. It 's great especially for the budding photographer like me, got some great close up shots of the meerkats and prairie dogs, the butterflies and owls. Loved the bird displays and getting the chance to get up close and personal with Bubbles the owl. The staff were very pleasant and informative when doing the displays too. A great little place to visit.
