Lovely family run business. Not overly expensive. Only half a day out though. Kids loved it seeing the animals

I was really looking forward to visiting and was unfortunately underwhelmed. It was small and could've been done in 15 mins. Clearly we took our time but the map was misleading. Social distancing is in place and covid restrictions which was good, however was just disappointed how quickly it was over with so to speak. The animals and reptiles are well looked after and care and attention is definitely seen, however was disappointed. Even if it was half price I probably wouldn't go again. I've been to local farms for half the price and have seen much much more and got value for money.

Shocking! A member of staff in the seal hospital mouthed an extremely rude word to me as I peeped through the window in the public viewing area! Extremely inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour, my 8 year old niece was standing next to me. It cost £47 for a family outing which considering all the closed sections due to restrictions at the moment was pretty steep. I didn’t mind paying it as I know it supports the rehabilitation of seals-I didn’t pay it to be sworn at! Many people using such foul language towards customers or service users would be dismissed! Hopefully she didn’t do it to any members of the TV crew who were there filming for ‘Bargain loving Brits on holiday’!

Natureland is a great place to bring your dog along, my pug loved meeting all the different animals. The seals and meerkats especially seemed very interested by her, it was quite fascinating to watch their reactions to one another. On top of this place being a fun day out for you and your dog, the place also provides lifesaving care to the many seals that are rescued in the area, so by visiting you know that you’re providing financial help to a good cause.

We went here on the spur of the moment when passing. The building itself looked great outside. The reception area is well decorated. That’s where it went down hill. It’s just under £10 each for an adult entry. Considering it’s £13.50 for a years pass at The Deep at Hull, we presumed here would be just as good. The majority of the animals are outside and in extremely small enclosures. The 4/5 penguins were in a tiny little pool with very limited shelter. The sun was beaming this day so I felt a little worried about them. I researched that penguins must be kept in a climate controlled environment - a constant 8 degrees Celsius. This isn’t it. The baby seals were also in what seemed to be a very small pool. It was over crowded for them. There’s no staff walking around the park for questions or guidance. The £10 entry for one seemed way too much to charge but the condition of the animals homes were most concerning. To the point of wanting to seek advice on this. I understand it’s a smaller run sanctuary but surely there’s a capacity for certain animals in those small enclosures. We went to The Deep at Hull the day after. To see the standards in which the animals were kept there was so reassuring compared to here. On walking around I heard a young boy say ‘Look Mum, another packed one.’ Sad really!
