It’s not cheaper than average for this sort of thing - £70 for a family ticket (2 adults, 2 children) and 3 seniors. The animals do appear to be cared for well and the education centre held a great “meet the animals session”. However there...More

Thankyou for visiting us yesterday and so glad your children enjoyed themselves. Our prices are very competitive with similar attractions in Devon. Our Ranger station is new this season and is in fact used for our many school visits and not for the general public....More

A very well maintained wildlife park with a wide range of easily visible animals. Compact and easy to get around. Plenty of entertainment for young children. A pleasant cafe in the grounds with friendly staff.

Excellent range of animals including farm animals, free-roaming peacocks, otters, a large variety of birds, reptiles, and other mammals (including Archie the armadillo). There is a free animal experience session when you can hold snakes, lizards, and hissing cockroaches with...More

Lovely place, beautiful setting, deceptively bigger than you first realise on entering, the staff are very helpful and knowledgable about the animals. We loved seeing/ holding animals in the education centre with Caroline.

I visited Axe Valley Wildlife Park today as a parent helper on a school trip. All of the children and adults had a lovely time and would have happily spent longer there. We had a talk from Catherine (sorry if I've got the wrong spelling)...More

What a delightful place! Only small but a wide variety of birds and animals. Low-level viewing windows & cleverly-angled enclosures & shelters mean that even the smallest child can see. All clean & beautifully kept. Flat site & very safe, with picnic and play areas...More

We had a fantastic time with year 1, 3 and 4. They tailored our trip for the age groups brilliantly. There is fantastic provision and a great range of animals. The handling session and the meerkat feeding were really good. Highly recommend this fabulous place.
