Hidden gem behind garden centre- pity more people don't know about it. Well worth a visit and it's free. Please go and support them

Found ourselves 3 miles from here this morning so nipped over for a noise. Fantastic little place, with enthusiastic staff. Parrots, Raccoons, a Genet, a porcupine,a skunk, goats, sheep, donkies and a load of raptors to name but a few. It has real charm, yes it is small but you get a great buzz being up close to the animals. Will be back.

An hour of my life wasted, I have tried to post for the restaurant but can't but if you do visit the Owl Centre make sure you don't go into the restaurant

Popped in to Gardenlands and decided to stay for coffee and a sandwich. We queued for 20 minutes to give our order and then at the table we waited for nearly 45 minutes. We tried to be patient as it was extremely busy. The last straw came when a family who had arrived after us were served before us. My sister spoke to a member of staff who mumbled something about fresh sandwiches before walking off. My sister asked to speak to the manager but was told that he/she was too busy. She explained the problem and they said they would sort it but time was pressing and eventually we decided on a refund just as three tired looking sandwiches were brought into view. It was explained that they had run out of egg mayonnaise and were having to make fresh, we suggested it might have been a good idea to have told us and give us the option of choosing something that was available. We did have apologies and a full refund which was appreciated but we shall not be going back for any reason again.

This is a great place to pass a few hours with young children. The staff are very welcoming and friendly! There is a very happy and healthy fox and raccoons as you enter - my little girl particularly enjoyed feeding the baby goats and free roaming ducks! The owner was particularly friendly and knowledgeable and even took the children into the meerkat enclosure to have photos taken. There are parrots there that can say lots of phrases and laugh (very entertaining). There are lots of different owls and Hawks to look at aswel as other animals - very fun day out and highly recommend

My mom and l visited here today and had such a lovely time. We weren't expecting to see so many different animals and it was good to see them in such a roomy, natural environment. The meerkats were so cute but then again so were the ducks, rabbits, raccoons, geese, sheep, hens, cockerills, parrots, owls, falcon, budgies etc! The staff are very friendly and helpful and we got to see a bird display which was a bonus. It was so nice to see children have the opportunity to meet animals in such a friendly environment and get to feed them. The entrance fee is very reasonable and l understand they are adding new animals soon. I would highly recommend, it is well worth a visit, especially for small children.
