We really loved this attraction. Having been to Paignton Zoo 2 years ago I wasn't really sure what to expect. It is much smaller but I liked it all the more for that. You feel a lot closer to the animals and it just feels a much cosier, friendlier experience.
Entrance price was reasonable at £40 for three adults and a 6 year old. Our two year old went free.
The zoo is really buggy friendly which was great and has loads of little viewing platforms and huts (which proved very useful in sheltering from the rain!). I noticed that there were also loads of little picnic tables dotted around the paths.
The animals were all easy to spot and look at...except the chameleon unsurprisingly! I gave up looking after 10 minutes! The pumas and cheetah were really impressive and the kids loved the (slightly sinister looking) sand cats.
The weather was absolutely shocking (not the zoo's fault) and we still really enjoyed it. Had the weather been better we'd have spent much longer than we did and made more of the kids play area which looked great, but the rain prevailed!
We all thought this zoo was fab. It's not as big and flash as Paignton but has a great charm and feel so I would recommend it.
My only gripe...being a huge fan of the gift shop, I thought it could have been bigger and more exciting. Overall great attraction though!
