Dropped in on a Sunday afternoon with our young daughter. She really enjoyed seeing all the animals (no sheep though!) and getting close to them really makes a difference. Not quite as many farm animals as I'd expect, but a broad selection. The indoor soft-play...More

Really enjoyed our visit although a trifle expensive for a large group.The kids loved the animals. As an accountant I’m bit concerned that they only take cash and don’t provide tickets or receipts unless requested. Not much of an audit trail!

Fabulous place to visit with children. Lots to do and see. Only downside was cafe which was very limited but may have been because we went mid week. Very impressed with range of activities and would definitely visit again when we’re in the area
