“Great never disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

We go here a few times a year it never disappoints and there always seems to something new popping up! The walks are great the animals well looked after in big enclosures the petting corner where you feed the animals is fantastic fun. The straw bales are great fun for the kids young and old! Lots to do the children's playground is worth the money alone

“Great for little ones”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Unashamedly aimed at younger children, but the place is still interesting for adults too. The boars themselves are only a small part of it - there is a good variety of other critters to see and some well thought-out nature trails by the river and through the woods, plus a great playground. We went on a warm summer's day but I imagine it might be rather a trial at other times of year as it's all outdoors. There's a rather amateurish feel to it, but it's no less enjoyable for that (e.g. the tractor pulling a train of kids all sitting in barrels cut in half - very resourceful!) The animals seem well cared for, though some of them, such as the owls, could do with more space. I imagine the poor things are sick to death of the excited masses!

“Great Day Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Perfect day out with my 8 and 10 year olds. Got up close and personal with the animals, lovely nature walks, tractor rides and hours of fun jumping on the straw in the barn.

“Not Bored by the Boars.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We took our Grandaughter to the park and had a brilliant time. My husband and I had lunch in the cafe and marvelled at the birds we could watch feeding. Rita our Grandaughter loved all the animals especially the hands on with the chicks. We walked around the park which was safe and great exercise for two years old Rita. We loved it so much that Rita has been since with her Mum and Dad. We will definately go again.
