Go in summer and have a good look around - if you like animals then fine - if you like eating them then fine - you can do both. Great for the kids as well ( well im a big kid after all ).

This is a really love place! There's lots to see and you can tell the staff really care about the animals, and that they are well looked after. I'd definitely recommend this to families.

I can only say that it was a walk round some animals. My son did enjoy feeding a bottle of milk to a lamb. The day we went was not a sunny day , quite dull.
