Another fantastic day out here! Such unusual animals and so lovely seeing a lot of them roaming free! We loved the handling of the animals with Catherine? Who was brilliant. Just an unknown local gem!

We found this lovely park by chance whilst staying near Axminster. There are plenty of animals to see. The enclosures are large. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable. Would definitely visit again. Make sure you see the delightful Arctic foxes!

Not so large and a bit expensive but animals are treated well, place is clean and plenty of fun for younger children. You can spend a good morning out and children will surely appreciate it.
