Entry is reasonable but there is not that much there. It does have a cafe.

Luckily it was not very busy so we had the place to ourselves.

Only £3 each entry.
Good small cafe which was very busy.
Plenty of farm animals to see, plus Meercats as well!
A good visit for a couple of hours. Not enough for much longer.

Went today with my 7 year old it is cheap admission fees but I would not have paid any more. There wasn`t much happening today we didn`t get to see the Meerkats and the play area was full of teenagers despite the sign saying maximum age 12.
The two husky type dogs looked thin and sad outside all day with little interaction. There really is not a gift shop just a small table area with a few bits to buy. The cafe food was reasonably priced but the flapjack was burnt and so hard I nearly broke my teeth on it !
Maybe we just picked a bad day to visit but it was the school holidays and there were no staff around at all to give talks or demonstrations.

Took my little Daughter to the Easter fun day it was extremely good value for money. Good range of animals a treat to see the new born lambs and calves. They have a meerkat enclosure too and did talks at feeding times, the chance to hold a snake a great photo opportunity and talks about the barn owls were all interesting. Bouncy castle, face painting egg hunt plus arts and crafts, including an outdoor play area and cafe a great day out. They also offer keeper experience packages a great idea for presents. I would definitely recommend a visit there's something for everyone.
