Loved this attraction. We visited in October on a chilly but sunny morning. Very sweet walk past the deer enclosures . Very accessible with a buggy and feeding the deer was fun . Enjoyed the talk from the deer ranger and hand feeding Issy

We stopped here on a coach tour. Basically there is just a few shops here. The cafe could not cope with a coach rush.. And you had to pay extra if you actually wanted to see the deers!! Total waste of time.

Beyond my expectations. Did guided tour with a very knowledgeable guide who answered many questions. Animals all looked healthy and had plenty of space. The Birds of Prey demonstration was good but commentary distorted. Again these beautiful creatures seemed well cared for. Cafe small and...More
