Nice little Zoo with some unusual animals you don't always see in Zoo's. The only downside was that the Capybara didn't have a pond to swim in which is odd seeing that they are aquatic mammals.

Thankyou for your review. Glad you enjoyed seeing our unusual collection. Just to clarify though, we do have a pond in the Capybara enclosure. A must have for this species as you said. Used regularly especially during the very warm spell we had.

The whole family enjoyed the visit, with ages rsnging from eight months to 67 years. Not too large so easy to explore for all ages in the party. Good variety of animals and birds, again enough different animals for the whole party to enjoy.

We found this lovely little park while on holiday nearby! It has many animals and a good variety! Ranging from farm animals, Zoo animals, native British wildlife and more exotic species! We ate in the cafe, lovely food and reasonably priced! Worth a visit!

We come every time we visit the area and have been doing so for the past ten years. This place just grows bigger and better every time we visit. I love the quirky feel and friendly owners. So pleased that it continues to do well.

We visited this little gem today with two of our grandchildren ages 5 and 7. We loved it so relaxed and enjoyable. Just the right size for getting around with plenty to see and do. My favourite Otters were there so added bonus!!

Having read the reviews my husband and I decided to pay a visit whilst on a circular walk in the area. We certainly didn't feel out of place having no children with us. A lovely way to spend a leisurely couple of hours. Would recommend...More
