i was at Eshott Huegh Animal Park again last week for the first time in 5 months and the changes are unbelievable and wonderful, i loved meeting Red the new bull calf and Milly the parrot was a delight as was Stilton the baby pygmy goat new enclosures are being built which surely means more animals although what they may be is being kept a tight lipped secret lol. Brian and Linda Bradley ( the owners) are as charming and friendly as ever as are all the staff and cant do enough to make a visit to their animal park ( of which they are rightly very proud ) a special occasion, baby lambs and a new baby Llama are due to be born very soon and new childrens play houses have been placed outside the Tearooms which the children i saw playing in them were delighted with. I cannot recommend this place highly enough a true treasure in our wonderful Northumberland countryside.

We visited the animal park on the 31/3/14 and even though the weather was grey and cold we had an absolutely fantastic day. the value for money was great, in the cafe and entry price and although it isn't a huge complex there is certainly enough to keep you entertained for a few hours. The food in the cafe was good, sandwiches, burgers, jacket potatoes etc but lovely food and good service. Pretty much all the animals were out to play and very interactive as you could feed most animals. all animals were kept in great conditions too which was nice to see. The owners/ staff were very friendly and answered all our questions and even got the shy red fox to come out to see us. They also brought out the lovely Millie the mackaw for us to see. Overall it is a great family day out and even managable for an 86 year old nana! There was also a riverside walk which we didn't have time to venture down. We will definately be back and reccommend anyone to stop by for a fun day out!

Another lovely day at the park, it was nice to see some changes and more animals since our last visit, the food from the cafe was delicious, the pulled pork sandwhich is a must. Its a great park that doesnt cost the earth to visit.
