Brilliant facility.
Aug 2020
Yesterday we visited the refuge for the first time after leaving our cockatiels with them in May (having had them for nearly 5 years), an incredibly hard decision for my wife and I.

We were so pleased to see the facility and how well they are being looked after. They are in an aviary far larger than anything we could've hoped to offer them. They have plenty of other birds to socialise with as well as plenty of food and fun activities to play on. We know now we made the right decision by our pets.

The entire site as well was truly wonderful and it was lovely to be able to walk around and see all the animals they take care of. The owls being a particular highlight for me.

It was great to visit them and support the work they do. We now make a monthly donation to them as well for taking our pets on. Thank you for all you do and I recommend people go and visit the wonderful work they do.

An inexpensive couple of hours for families
Jul 2019
There is a good variety of animals and they are clearly well looked after.It is a very informal setting as it is a refuge, not a zoo. There were a few stalls selling goods as a fund raiser and a small but adequate cafe.The volunteers were very welcoming and I would recommend the open days as a good,inexpensive, family outing.

We love going to the open days here, the animals are very well loved and cared for, and that is clear to see. Fab to raise money to fund some food or cleaning supplies!!

Just got back from visiting this place. How lucky were we with the weather It's great. Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. It's a shame it's only open a few days a year. Lots of animals to see. The monkey's were great. Well done to all the staff. Will definitely be back with the grandkids.

Not open enough!

Only open a few weekends a year, and very busy when it is.
It's not a zoo so don't go expecting too much, enjoy it for what it is.

Easter Treat
Apr 2019 • Family
Went here on Easter Sunday, as the premises only opens a handful of times a year. It was £6 for an adult entry, but car parking was free. There was more to see here than I had imagined, but I was quite taken with a Bearded dragon called Tripod - named for obvious reasons. The staff were both friendly and knowledgeable, and I think many of them are volunteers. There were a few extra stalls and a tombola to add to the ambience, and you can adopt animals and buy gift experiences. It's not a huge place, but we stayed for a couple of hours and it is well worth a visit.

It is only allowed to open 6 times a year so make the most of it when it is...you can arrange to do a private... keeper for the day trip... or have a birthday party there..... they do fantastic work and the animals are adorable such hard working loving caring people who deserve your support

Worth a visit
Sep 2018 • Family
We paid our first visit here on the September Open Day. Yes, its a small place, and yes bits of it are a little run down, but remember this is a refuge. Its entirely funded by donations and seems to be staffed mainly by volunteers.
I was impressed with how much space some of the animals had and love the monkey house! We happily spent a couple of hours visiting with the animals, chatting to staff and trying the cafe. We will definitely be revisiting and would encourage (especially local) people to support EPR.

We went here on an Open Day, We got there 20 mins before opening and were lucky as the car park was starting to fill up.

They had lots of different animals to see, however it doesn't compare to a zoo (and I wouldn't expect it to for the price) it's significantly cheaper and you can tell it's not really aimed at visitors, rather animal welfare.

Kids enjoyed it, which is the main thing and it didnt cost me an arm and a leg to get in. I've been I wouldn't say i'd rush back but wouldn't rule out going again.
