“Small but well worth a visit”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

We went there with our two boys aged 8 & 5 and two girls aged 3 & 9 months.
Many mention on here that attraction seems a little tired but hey you visit to look at the animals not the building !
The staff are excellent with them having a snake, millipede, another insect & a stick insect all of which could be held.
We spent just over 3 hours there, the kids loved it as it I, well worth a visit

“Surprisingly Brilliant”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Having read reviews we nearly missed this delightful place! We have a 2.5 year old and there was so much here to keep her entertained, a nature trail, a beautiful butterfly house, bug and spider section, snakes, alpacas, donkeys, rabbits, pigs, a bird look out hut, a children's play area, very tame hens wondering around, it even has a tractor go kart track, soft play area for the under 5s even a bouncy castle. This place is small at first glance but once inside there is enough to keep your children entertained for hours!! Enjoy, we did!!

“Not a very big attraction. Still enjoyable though :)”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

The whole attraction takes about 45m to an hour to get around.
Can't fault the place though.

You can walk amongst butterflies and birds! Can see the small petting farm consisting of guinea pigs and rabbits and pigs. You can also watch the meerkats running around. There is a bug enclosure and a snake/reptile enclosure also.

Playground towards the end of the place including a zip wire. Slide and swings aswell as climbing equipment.

Worth the price of £7.50 per adult.
& worth a visit. Just don't expect this to be a full day out!

“Lovely animals, shame about the place!”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Don't get me wrong, the animals here are lovely. There's a fair amount of animals to see and you can get up close to most of them. I thought the entrance fee was fair. We spent a couple of hours there looking around. I thought the café was a little on the expensive side though. Nearly £16 for 2 paninis, 1 portion of chips and a couple of coffees. My main issue with the attraction, is that it feels as if its run by people who don't really care about the animals or the visitors. We were upset by the amount of dead butterflies in the enclosure (we counted 11 in the 15 mins we were in there!). I appreciate that they only live a few weeks, but it still seemed excessive. The food for the butterflies was mouldy and the plants looked like they'd seen better days. The animals outside looked bored and depressed, not surprising given that there were few things for them to do in their small areas. I've been a lots of animal attractions, farms, zoos, etc and although the animals here are great to see, the staff and the place leave a lot to be desired. Unfortunately, I won't be going again
