Won't be going back.
Jul 2019
The old bag on the gate was so rude I almost turned round and went straight back to the car.
I would have done so, if I had not had my young Godchild with me, and a couple of visiting friends.
Once inside we found it had a sort of run-down charm, and my Godchild did enjoy it.
It's a bit like Blackgangchine, but inland.
I would have suggested it to other people as a nice way to fill an hour or two if they had very young kids. But the family running it do not deserve any custom.

Realy magical place to go with the young kids, lots of hands on with a select few of the animals. My kids absolutely loved it.

Had a great time, friendly staff, not sure what other reviews experienced

I visited here during half term with two young boys (7yrs & 4yrs) I had read previous reviews but was told by friends how lovely it is. Friendly staff upon arrival (they have a card machine FYI although I paid cash & clear sign stating to buy animal food there - so maybe listened to previous reviews?)
They had a competition going to find (toy) bats around the park & mark on map for a prize. This was just one of the elements of entertainment for the children. Farm animals were cute with lots of information & clearly love to be fed!! Woodland areas was lovely too, and informative about trees and folklore. Would be lovely to visit in spring when Bluebells are out. Good play area for small and big kids. Food was good & reasonable priced. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
All of the bags were found and the boys won a prize each- much to their delight!
Enjoyable fun outdoors day! Reasonable priced and would estimate a good 2/3hours -pending how long you wish to spend with animals & play.

Basically a petting zoo for farm animals with a very short wooded walk attached.

Cafe is reasonably priced compared to some.

The place is in need of some maintenance to make it feel better value. Lots of shaded areas when it's hot to escape the warm weather but only an hour or so can be spent here before you wonder where to go next.

With a bit of TLC, it could be a nice little spot to go before/after lunch.

Would come again, if it had some work done......

Druidstone herne terrible not worth the money
Aug 2019 • Family
We went there today with our goddaughter as we have never been before and wanted to do something different. Well what can I say, The place is run down the animals are filthy there is muck everywhere fences bad and not a lot to do, we only stayed just under a hour for £6.50 per adult. If you want a great place to go the do wildwood or Wingham well worth it at both these places.

Not great. Needs refreshing
Aug 2019 • Family
Went with grandchildren 4 and 18 mths. Really quite tired. Elderly lady on the gate was very surly but rest of staff friendly. Place is out of step with 2019. Needs a tidy and a clean. The animals look happy but are hardly wildlife. Cow, sheep and goats are not wildlife in my book. Playground is untitled. Pity as could be great.

We visit here every year. I have a 11year old 7 year old and 2 year old. Had another amazing day today spent all day walking round animals, woods and playing in the park. Fabulous value for money. Staff are lovely. Complete valve for money

A step back in time...
Jul 2019
We've visited here a couple of times as our 4 year old grandchildren love it. They particularly enjoy the play area. we've eaten at the cafe and the food was freshly made, well presented and very good value for money. The toilets are clean. However, on the hot day we visited many of the animal enclosures didn't seem to have water and looked in need of some repair. However, we have little knowledge of keeping animals, so perhaps the conditions were adequate.

Not worth the money!
Jul 2019 • Family
Between the 9 of us we paid about £60 for the entrance fee, however when we arrived the card machine was not working, they allowed us in as long as we paid on the way out but was made to feel like criminals! Once we got inside the park we was very disappointed! Park was so unkept, run down and dull. The animals looked neglected and starving! This park could be so much better with a little TLC! After less than an hour we were finished. Just felt it wasn’t worth the price we paid.

Lovely place, rude staff

We came here for a visit during our stay in canterbury and on the way to whitstable. It's an easy journey on the bus. When we arrived, we were surprised to learn that it was £6 entry per adult. A bit pricey for a small place. On top of that, you have to pay separately to buy food for the animals. We didn't realised this until walking round and seeing people with food bags, so when we returned to the entrance hut to ask for food, we asked if it was possible to pay with card (we had no cash). The lady simply looked at us and said, "no." No explanation, no apology, no nothing. We felt really disappointed by the lack of customer service. So, we ended up walking around the park unable to feed the animals, which was such a shame, because they approach you at the petting stations expectantly. The animals were so lovely and we really enjoyed seeing them. The woodlands is nice, but nothing special. You probably wouldn't spend any longer than 45 minutes here, and for such a price to get in, it's a bit wasteful. I wouldn't want to discourage you from visiting, but I'd recommend bringing cash. This is not explained anywhere beforehand.
