We are all for supporting !local businesses but this needs Alex Polizzi. It's like visiting a creepy neighbours garden. I've not seen toilets that unkempt s since 1978. The chip fat stinks. The whole place needs a power hose set to it. It's the start...More

Went to the park today with two toddlers. The state of the animals was absolutely appalling. It was exceptionally run down and quite clearly the animals were uncared for and unloved. No effort has gone in to the thought and maintenance of this place and...More

Contrary to the previous reviewer, I absolutely love this establishment. They adopt beautiful animals and treat them amazingly which is evident when you spend time petting and feeding them. They offer excellent priced food that is not the usual extortionate price at a similar benue...More

I would NOT recommend going here. It's so run down it's actually quite sad. There was deadly nightshade growing on a dung heap in the main area, the park was just all in a real state of disrepair with brambles and stinging nettles growing everywhere...More

This is fairly local to us. Easy to find and a good size area for parking. This animal park is very small, having a couple of donkeys, several sheep, a cow, some fallow deer, three llamas (and they do spit!) , some ducks/geese and goats....More
