Had a great day with my two youngsters and Grandma a few days ago. Lots of activities to do- helped to feed the meerkats, my daughter bottle fed a lamb and managed to win at the ferret race! It was lovely walking around hand feeding sheep, llamas etc and had a cuddle of a rabbit and chick in the sunshine.... More

On paper they have all the elements of a relly great day out but the enclosures and cages are in poor condition. All needs a complete renovation and attention to detail is lacking. The new meercat 'attraction' consists of 2 meercats. The Alice in Wonderland event were 3 actors shouting at each other. Very dissappointed.

Visited here while staying at Darwin Forest, got 30% discount on admission by showing lodge key. Was very quiet when there, which gave us plenty of time to feed animals. (£1 for bag of food.) Our 5 year old was given the chance to bottle feed a lamb and a calf - lovely experiences! Staff were busy working with animals,... More

Between 10 and 12, mon-fri, coffee mornings mean that two toddler entries, an adult entry and a coffee is just £5. It's a bargain! And you can stay for as long as you like. There are several play areas for all ages, a sand pit and a good variety of animals to look at and feed. Everything is very reasonably... More
