Excellent day out for all the family. Plenty to do and see. Loads of animals to look at donkey rides and a bumpy tractor ride all adds to the fun.

We spent a great day here. My daughter loved feeding all the animals and giving them all lots of cuddles. The tractor ride and donkey rides were also great and only cost £1 each. Cafe was cheap enough and food was nice. Would definitely return
