We loved the Owl and Monkey Haven. It is wonderful to go to a place that saves, helps and protects animals. The monkeys and owls were just a joy to see. The sanctuary was very clean and organized. All of the animals appeared to be well cared for.

Small little zoo, was enjoyable , not much there. As out of season you get a discount to get in.but would be a little pricey if there was a few of you.

We took our 18mth old nephew who loved it - as did we!! All the monkeys seemed really happy and well cared for. The sanctuary is lovely and clean, and there are a wide variety of monkeys and owls to see, despite the centre being quite small. They were building whilst we were there which I assume means they are getting some more residents next year so we look forward to returning to meet them. I would recommend people visit the centre as more than anything I think they need the support to continue the good work they are doing.

As a haven, it's wonderful and I would recommend it for a visit. It's not that big, it is wheelchair friendly and the cafe is lovely - lots of freshly cooked food served by very helpful and friendly staff. Only downside was a disappointing marmoset encounter. The furry critters didn't want to play ball, which I totally understand, but there seemed to be quite a high turnover of encounters which to me suggests anyone having an encounter after lunch is very unlikely to get their money's worth as the marmosets are already stuffed full of tasty treats and not at all interested in meeting and greeting visitors! Can't say I blame them! If you want to hand feed them go as early as you can.

We have been visiting this attraction for the past 5 years or so. When we first started going it was very new. But now has "blossomed" into a truly fantastic place. The animals are housed in splendid enclosures. They have plenty of space. and lots of stimulation. Toys branches etc etc.. Make sure that you read on the web site when the talks are. They are very very interesting and informative. Also check out the feeding times.We normaly visit the on site café at the end of our visit. The hot chocolate and scones are to die for (goodbye diet) There is a good solid car park. We have visited both in the Summer and Autumn. And have never had a problem parking. Plenty of the brown road signs to find your way. Well worth a visit. Good paths, even if you are a little unsteady on your pins.
