I dont like to leave bad reviews about a business, but this was not a good experience. Sadly this attraction has fallen into a neglected state & we stayed less than an hour. We did look at the butterflies, & the few birds, but for us that was about all worth looking at. I felt very sad for the donkeys in a bare dusty dry enclosure, no grass (they did have hay and water) .The children's play area is a wooden playhouse & a couple of garden rockers plus a run down small pirate ship & a very small adventure course (less than 5 bits I would say) . The play area was an area that had been dug over& then weeds have got in to grow, & the whole site was overrun with an unruly passion fruit vine & ivy. No real gardens to look at, more gimmick than gardens. No beasts ( there used to be lizards) & no birds of prey. Museum is so run down and dusty/dirty, & the crazy golf is an uninviting concrete area that I think you have to pay extra for( we didnt even bother to find out to be fair!) We had come here years ago & it was quite a nice day. But now I am sorry to say we wont be back and I would not recommend it. Expensive £40 odd entrance fee for our family & it certainly is not worth that!!! My advice to you Earnley, start with a decent play area for toddlers, add a big feature play item for older kids, nice seating area for adults, icecream & snacks cafe, & grow the petting animals side... then use the profits to slowly update and modernize everything else. U could have a thriving business here but in the current state people wont pay to come. Sorry

As a family of 2 adults and 3 children we really looked forward to our visit to this location. The website sounded like it would be a decent enough place....how wrong we were to eve think that! At the entrance/reception area was a rather moody middle aged woman sitting there who didn’t even bother saying hello. All she asked was how many of us there were. I pulled out my debit card to pay but she told me her card machine wasn’t working and I needed to pay in cash. I told her I didn’t have any cash on me. So she said she would try her card reader but there was no guarantee it would work. At my first attempt of punching in my pin, it went through! “Must be my lucky day!” I said. Moody middle aged woman looked at me unimpressed. The moment went through from one area to another it was clearly evident that “budget” didn’t even begin to describe this whole place and felt like we been had and basically paid for a sub standard experience. Even the birds and animals looked depressed! Save your money and visit somewhere else! I have had more fun at a local garden centre and checking out their reptile area...which remjnds me there was signs at this place stating “No Reptiles” they must have escaped to save them from a life of boredom and moody middle aged women!

With a discount about £30 for a family this would be great value for two or three hours of interest. The butterfly house had some great butterflies and as it is quite small gives a great view, especially when they flutter around you. The bird house had chickens and parakeets flying around with other birds in cages. The animal avenue had a few guinea pigs and rabbits to feed, chipmunks and a couple of noisy donkeys. We spent most time in the gardens area where there are a number of differently named garden areas in a large glasshouse. This was mainly searching out the answers to the Halloween quiz which was fun. The nostalgia museum looks like it was nostalgically forgotten. There are toilets and basic cafe facilities with sausage rolls and chips and things. Easy to find and park. Probably quite good on a rainy day. Overall, an interesting visit but feels as tired in late autumn as the rest of the Witterings area. Closes over winter.

A bit off the beaten track but very low entrance fee. The butterfly enclosure was worth seeing on its own. The rest of the collection was looking as if it needed a refurbishment.

I think this place is very over priced. Especially for either single parent families or families with lots of children as only 1 "family" ticket option. A relatively small butterfly area but with a nice selection. Same for the birds. And considering this is what the place is about it's rather disappointing. That said there is then a selection of mini gardens of various types. The weirdest museum I can recall visiting in extreme need of tlc. Quite upset about the owl cage. I'm no expert but it seemed very small for such a big bird. All in all we enjoyed it though
