Friendly, lots to do and see for all ages, will go again. Loved the duck and lamb racing and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed the guinea pig and rabbit enclosure.

Went with the family for a day out and the grandchildren had a wonderful time, they especially enjoyed the soft play area, it was wonderful and so safe for all ages. Great place for young families, I would say under eights.
