Filthy dirty. Animals look depressed and bored. Small dirty enclosures. Only the pigs looked happy perhaps they were deep in s**t. The food was ok but the whole facility looked underinvested and in need of extreme refurbishing. The play facilities for the young children was...More

Visited the farm today with two friends and left feeling sad concerned for the welfare of the animals. There was a calf at the start which actually appeared to be sedated and totally unresponsive. There was a mouse in one enclosure being eaten by the...More

Spent the day her with my wife and 18mo daughter. Some of the animals are in areas that are a little bit small for their species type. Birds of prey having about 5m X 5m which is crazy, they could barely open their wings. Racoon...More

Hi Emma, The buses around here are not very reliable so I would recommend getting a bus to Wilton and then getting a taxi. We are only 5 minutes from Wilton Shopping Centre.
