This is the best place to go if you got young children but it is a massive shame that they are closing down due to retirement after 20 years running

We visited here for the first time yesterday and apparently chose the best weather day of the year which was great being as the park is all outdoors. Being a Wednesday it was quite so there were just the 2 of us wondering around which was nice. The area is lovely and surrounded by trees and vast areas of water. There were all sorts of birds flying around and singing and lots of geese making a lot of noise!
The park is one big circle and on our way around we saw coatis, meerkats, llamas, alpacas, deer, donkeys, yak, camel, monkeys, wallabys, lemurs, farm animals and lots of types of exotic birds. At the end of the trail we were looking at the marmosets and one of the keepers asked if we wanted to feed them which was nice so we fed them with live mealworms and they kept stealing them off the tweezers; they are so cute and tiny!
When we had walked round we went to the cafe and had a drink and a ham and cheese panini each which were lovely and a very good price. We sat outside and watched the fishermen around one of the lakes while the peacocks tried to steal our food!
We had a lovely few hours here and for only £7.50 each we think it was well worth it.

I felt although you can take the children to view the various wildlife and spend an hr or two the main feature is for those that go fishing.
It's also quite expensive for what it is but the Park has improved over the years.
