Run by the owners? We guess. They certainly keep busy. The young man in the park, was amazing, wherever we were, he was to be seen working. He was also very helpful. The cafe was pleasant with friendly staff .

Lovely day out, very reasonably priced, plenty to see and do,lots of different animals, my daughter loved petting the rabbits. Only down side is everything is a bit rough around the edges expecially some of the animal enclosures. But overall had a nice day out.

While I totally get it is essentially a working farm it just seems like it’s pay your money and get on with it. The animals seem fine and you can get quite close and pet most of them. It’s been a while since my last...More

First impressions aren't great when the only parking is on a muddy field, not ideal when I've got a pushchair! But we pushed on eager to see if things got better..... They didn't. We walked round in an hour and spent an hour in the...More
