“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Whilst staying at Butlins we went here and spent a got 2 to 3 hours. I think my daughter enjoyed feeding the goats most. Personally I liked the area with the butter flies.

“Would definitely return!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

We loved it here! There are lots of animals to see here including meerkats, fish, reptile house, penguins, butterfly house, and also the goats that we enjoyed feeding.

I would highly recommend that you visit here if nearby. You won't be disappointed.

“Great Family Attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

It is small but has a lot of nice little touches like the feeding of the seals/penguins and the little feeding area full of goats/sheep.

“Sealing the deal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

The good people at Natureland do a great job rescuing damaged seals. The sanctuary is well laid out, pleasant to visit, and easy to get to.
There is a surprising amount to see once you're in there. Not only the seals, including the hospital and recovery pool, but a pond full of seals waiting to be returned to the wild.
There are Penguins, goats, sheep, birds, and the butterfly house is absolutely splendid.
The café is a bit basic. Your typical seaside chips with everything menu, but they don't claim to be cordon bleu.
Three adults and two little kids on this visit, and we all enjoyed it.
