Excellent day with the animals
Sep 2021 • Couples
A wonderful visit to beautiful place. Don't be fooled thinking it's small, it's HUGE. We had a lovely time viewing the animals who are very well cared for, and to get up close to the small goats was magical.We was there for hours, excellent food, great parking. Highly recommended.

WAY BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS
Aug 2021
I don’t know where to start, this place is slightly off the beaten track. There are brown tourist attraction signs and you should follow them as they take you to a real hidden gem. There was ample parking and lots of signs to the way in. There was a huge number of owls at the start of the trail and they are developing the area to make more aviaries for them. Lots of information on each species. There are numbers to guide you around the site which helps with social distancing. All of the animals are well cared for and their pens are spacious and interesting. There are pens where you can enter and pet the animal. The children were having such a great time even little toddlers. There are two pens 😉 for humans to have lunch either take a picnic or buy food from the cafe. Food reasonably priced and tasty. Service excellent and very friendly. Spend as much time there as you like. We went around the whole site, had lunch the went round again. I cannot recommend this place enough they clearly plough money back into the venture. Animals seemed so happy and we particularly noticed that the staff were doing checks on the animals throughout the site while we were there. It’s the best £10 entrance fee I have ever spent. Go and check it out for yourself!

Fantastic day out for the whole family
Aug 2021 • Family
Just having an amazing visit here, great for people of all ages.
Owner very kind and helpful, he overheard me ask our friend if he had found a parking space in the shade for the dog and told him to park under his garage at his house.
Great hospitality even before we had spent a penny.
A large selection of owls, birds, sheep, goats donkeys and other animals.

A great day was had by all ages., very covid safe.

Great day out with a wide variety of animals
Aug 2021 • Family
Lovely place - plenty of parking; solid Covid measures in place. Large collection of owls alongside other fowl, goats, sheep, donkeys, reindeer, pigs, alpacas, and others. The animals seem happy enough and are obviously well cared for.

Decent cafe providing basic but well done sandwiches, toasted sandwiches and so on.

A great day out for people of any age.

Fabulous farm park
Aug 2021 • Family
We had a great day here! Both children & adults loved this place, loads of really great owls, many of which I’d never seen or heard of before. They were fascinating.
You can go into quite a few of the paddocks with the goats & sheep which was a lovely experience, my kids spent ages in there. It all looks well maintained.
There was a nice little cafe & plenty of picnic benches.
If I lived closer I’d be getting a season ticket .

Fun and educational

Excellent farm park and lots of owls. One way system with numbers means that people can maintain distance and still be sure that they have not missed anything. Wonderfully friendly animals that just love being tickled. Happy to recommend this for both adults and children

Interesting and well kept animals with lots of owls. One way system in place which ensured you could keep a safe distance and still see all the animals. Coffee and cake good.

Best farm I’ve ever visited
Jul 2021 • Couples
This is the best farm I have ever visited. The animals are kept in such great conditions. Massive plus for me is to be able to go in some enclosures and sit and interact with the animals!! 100% recommended for all ages! Might even come a second time whilst on our holiday this week

One of the best small animal parks I have been to.
Jul 2021
One of the best small animal parks I have been to.
I can't rate it highly enough.
The owl centre is an added bonus. All of the owls are visible with excellent information boards which are also all round the other pens and cages. The owls genuinely seem interest in all of people passing by for their entertainment.
All the animals are happy. The goats are calm, polite, friendly and totally non-aggressive. This is down to no feeding or feed buckets in the pens. You can still fed them but from the outside. Because of the calmness of the animals this is the perfect place to introduce small and maybe timid children to the goats.
Lots of the chickens and ducks are wandering freely around.
It is very reasonably priced. Forget your safari parks this is place to come.
For a small park it is 100% disabled accessible. Free mobility scooters (which I used one of) or wheelchairs. Good toilets with a separate one for disabled with baby changing.
The café has a small but excellent menu and attached gift shop.

Well done Jay. You have got everything right.
