“a great way to see our native wildlife”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Simply a very enjoyable day out for all.. The talks are very informative. Always something new to see or being created. A chance for everyone to get up close to animals you would not normally see in daytime. Especially good if you are a keen photographer. When weather is good are some picnic areas when not so good the cafe is good. Staff are very friendly and always happy to answer questions.

“wildlife made accessible”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

not sure why most of the most of the dens were empty but., i am going to stick my head out and recommend this attraction from end of march onwards. most of the wildlife is made accessible for your enjoyment here that usually would not come anywhere near you, so especially the children will have a chance to see a fox or otter at close range,, yes, the entry fee is a bit steep but i can not fault the facilities for the animals and the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. toilets are clean and there is food(though not a huge selection) at the cafe , ok the sausage roll was cold but you can always bring a picnic ad eat it oustide in designated areas.. come and support id say..

“Our lovely wildlife”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Great for all ages. Very interesting. There are talks on all the animals. We love it and visit regularly. Expect to find some of the animals sleeping during the day. There are glass screens indoors for you to view the sleeping animals. The cafe is really good too. Very clean and well worth a visit.

“Empty cages!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Payed £10.50 each to get in and only saw otters and foxes, the rest of the inclosures were empty. Have to say I was extremely disappointed!
