Feadon Farm Wildlife Centre Redruth
#2 of 282 Nature & Parks in Cornwall
Gary is so knowledgeable and passionate about what he does - we were really inspired by his love and knowleadge of nature.
We stayed at Gwel an Mor, which is next door to the farm, so we had already seen some of the animals and we had visited other animal parks, so I was doubtful that a visit could offer much more.
The Flicka Foundation - Donkey Sanctuary Penryn
#3 of 282 Nature & Parks in Cornwall
A wonderful charity that save and look after unwanted donkeys, completely free to park and visit but having seen the work they do i defy anyone to leave without making a reasonable donation.
Don’t go expecting theme park/ farm park entertainment this is a working sanctuary where you go for the love of donkeys.
