We took our grandchildren and loved it. Clean and well looked after animals, loads of stuff for under10's including pig racing, play areas. A good day out and the restaurant was reasonable.

Really good day out. Lots of cuddling and patting of animals to be had. Really good indoor and outdoor play areas. Clean. Well organised. Friendly staff. We loved it!

We had a problem finding the place due to the sat nav kept trying to send us down a dead end road, after we could not find it we asked a passer by and he said that lots of people get lost as there is no notices from the direction that we came we were told to go left,left,and left again then and only then did we see a sign to the place.
Apart from that we found that it was a very enjoyable day, there was lots to do and see, plenty of space to do your own thing as well as organised events, the playground area was very good and so was the wild woods course, we enjoyed the pig racing and the game birds display all in all not enough time to fit it all in.

We had our wedding reception there; but only because whomever we had taken to visit previously (of all age groups) had enjoyed so much. There is a very good restaurant, a shop for plants, icecreams and sweets, knick knacks and souvenirs. Pig racing, tractor hay rides, plenty of animals i,e pigs to turkeys to butterflys and most things in between.

Great day out for young kids and their parents too!
So many people have already said how great this is but I just want to say it really is, great variety of animals, the compere for the pig race was hilarious, easy to eat there or bring a picnic. Play areas are great, there is a great woodland trail where you have to watch out for trolls. The tractor ride is long enough and goes for a long distance making it worth the wait.
There is an indoor play area too but never had enough time to use it.
They do special family days with penty of extra activities.
The walk is great, you get to sit in the oversized throne on the way up and there is a woodland with carved totems and an orchard too which is very peaceful.

Great day out and worth getting a year round ticket as you will want to go back!
