We are so happy you all enjoyed yourselves so much. You are right, the animal activities happen every half hour but there is a great variety of events!

Brilliant seeing all the animals up close and the kiddies loved it. Best bit was feeding the lambs. The cafe is very well presented and serves great food and drink. Lots for little ones to do and a very good way to spend a day.

Thank you Mary for your review. The bottle feeding would require 40 lambs or more to receive your own bottle. I am sure you appreciate this would be unmanageable. Instead children are encouraged to share. I apologise if your “sharers” were not so fair.

We are so happy you loved your day. Thankfully an ice cream, flake and sauce is still better value than a beach cone :)

We took our grandson here and we had a great day. The interaction with the animals was great he really enjoyed feeding the lambs with milk. A great day out.
