I have been for a couple of times now for lunch as it is local. Whilst the place is over run with children which is not a problem, and the staff worked very hard cleaning the awful mess that was left behind, the price of the food was very over priced and you got very little for your money. I... More

Great way to entertain the children on a weekend or during the holidays. Lots of farm type animals, well spread out and plenty of space for picnics etc as well as great ways to tire out the kids.

We were nvited to a friends wedding. Very friendly staff, the reception was run like clockwork. The staff seemed to be informing the bride and groom of all the timings. The food presentation was nice.,although it was just before Christmas there was a warm atmosphere and very pleasant. Really lovely setting..

Not really an animal park when there are only cows, sheep and a few farm animals. Very over priced. Lovely views and nice to walk for fresh air. Food very expensive.

My daughter held her wedding here, just before Christmas, what an amazing day. We were greeted at the door by Jason, who showed us to our room, then gave us the tour and a run through of how the day would proceed. From the moment we arrived, to the time that we left, nothing was to much trouble. He really... More

In this day and age to have a large parrot trapped in a small cage (not large enough for the parrot to even spread its wings) stuck in the corner of the restaurant/cafe is pretty disgusting. The cage was filthy and the parrot was basically placed in the corner of the room and left there to be shouted out by... More

I have two grown up children and so I have had lots of Father Christmas experiences. But this was by far the best (I had the pleasure of going with friends' children). It all started in the restaurant where we were given childrens' activities to keep them occupied - we made a reindeer. Then an elf came to fetch us... More

We live close by so made sense to take out an annual subscription so we can visit as many times as we like. The children love the trampolines, the various animals and the large field with all the climbing, swinging and jumping frames. Plenty of good food in the café plus the lovely Marshfield ice cream - Oh! and don't... More
