A nice day out, not an awful lot to see but enough for small children, parking is limited. There is a cafe and a little souvenir shop.

Visit here reguarly with family. Grandson loves it more than the big zoo. Really good value. At the weekend you can pet small animals and ride a horse at an extra cost. Cafe is also good value and the gift shop is not over priced.
