“Great place.”
Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Visited with my three year old. So much to see. Pigs, goats, chickens, donkeys, ducks, rabbits, guinea pigs and much more! There are also some play area type things scattered about, including trampoline and slides. The only gripe I have is that guinea pigs are being kept with rabbits, and they have no grass, their runs are all on concrete and a small area. Apart from this it was a wonderful afternoon out.

“Nice budget friendly family afternoon out”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

Went here on 20th August 2013. Family of 4, 2 adults and children aged 6 and 4. Only £5 for us all to get in. Lots of animals which you can buy feed for for just £1 for 3 bags. Nice woodland walk and play area. Plenty of tables if you take a picnic. Cafe was pleasant and not expensive either. Really nice afternoon out for under £20.

“Excellent place for the family.”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Great place to take the kids. Excellent food and lovely staff. Only downside is the manager Sarah, her attitude stinks. She's very rude and lacks people skills. Would highly recommend the place and the other staff are lovely. Shame about the manager.

“Good, friendly place for kids”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Nice little animal park, little crazy golf course and a few trampolines, we spent a happy few hours here followed by an ice cream in the clean, bright cafe. Only a few £ to go in, great value and all in a good cause

“Nature at its best”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Went with family on a visit to them. Lovely place. well spread out ,quite a few animals to see , lots of room for a picnic and for children to run around. The cafe before you enter does really nice food as well. It was not expensive to go into either place . Only negative there was not alot of hand washing facilities so take you're own gel if you have it, because you can stroke the animals, you can also buy guinea pigs from them if they have any. All in a very good place and as its a charity as well it benefits lots of people.
