Sad it closed due to lack of compassion for the animals and lack of respect for the monastery by the owner All she had to do was stop selling hot food and drink in the shop as the monastery had asked her as it was taking business away from their cafe

Closed. Permanently September 2019 due to proposed redevelopment of the old monastery on the site. There have been planning applications for several years resulting in tensions with local residents and site tenants.

Not an awful lot to do for adults, but if you're taking the kids, they will really enjoy it. Animals and play equipment.

After planing well in advance, and making sure to arrive early, my partner and I followed the signs, informing us that the park was open all year, and arrived at the visitor center, once again informing us that they are open year round. Upon entering, we were greeted by a woman who informed us we could look around the shop before returning to the conversation she was having behind the counter. After a short look in the sparsely filled shop, I enquired if we could enter the park, only to be brusquely told that the park had closed the previous week, with no explanation as to why. The park that, as we walked down towards it, was advertised as being ‘Open All Year’. Perhaps the center should better advertise these facts, or not blatantly lie, so people do not plan their day around an activity they are not able to access. Perhaps they should also train their staff to more politely explain the situation,rather than acting like we should already know this secret fact. All in all, a great disappointment on way at we had hoped would be a lovely day interacting with the wildlife. We will be unlikely to attempt a future visit, as we are incapable of seeing the future to foresee any chance of admittance.

Am so surprised to read the odd negative review on here and so glad we ignored them. Our 18 mth old absolutely loved this. The deer are so friendly and so are the doves. You get to mix with the animals in a unique way - the park seemed very well run and very well kept to me with plenty of information, on going projects and plenty of hand sanitisers. This is a great place to visit and even better if you have young children. Really recommend. Oh and staff were really pleasant and helpful too.
