“Great place to visit for the whole family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

The last time we came here was about 5 years ago, a lot has changed since then, there are more animals to see now, which is great when you have a family as it keeps the kids more interested, admission prices are reasonable and there is a small cafe for a hot cuppa when in October, would definitely visit again when in Lincolnshire.

“Fab morning/afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

So much more to see then you think, I've been here the last 3 years and this was my first visit as I thought it would be tiny and boring. It is nothing like that absolutely brilliant . You can get a lot closer to the animals then the big named zoo's and everything is well kept, either go in the morning or afternoon it's not a full day out thing .

“Lovely experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

We went in August with 4 adults, a 5 year old and a 13 month old. The sanctuary had more animals than I thought. My disappoint was that there were not more seals. It was advertised as seal sanctuary but there were alot more other animals. But we really enjoyed it. We managed to watch the staff feeding the seals and my little boy thought it was amazing. On on the seals stuck its bottom and out the water and broke wind on his Grandma's face, that was every so funny. We had a pushchair and it was easy to get around. The shop had reasonably priced items. The attreaction was better that I tought it would be. Good value for money x x

Not really a great animal lover but I found that the work being done was indeed very worthwhile and happy to support in such a small way - Money well Spent
