We had a wonderful afternoon with Phoebe meeting Chewie and Rey, Lena the bush tailed possum and little bear the raccoon. Phoebe was very informative, explained about the animals we were visiting and answered our questions with ease. We will definitely be returning.

Booked for my partner as knew he would love to meet a serval! We were super lucky and actually got to stroke one but this isn't guaranteed! The lemurs and meerkats were on extra but actually really enjoyed feeding the lemurs, they are super cute!...More

Had a wonderful morning at this small but very well organised and well kept farm/zoo. Can't recommend keeper experience enough! Great value for money topped only by the knowledgeable and personable keepers. Will be visiting again in warmer weather!

Yes you share with other people - we shared with another couple but it was fine. You get to spend your own time with the animals and it is not rushed at all.

I was there yesterday & the lady showing us round said a child has to be at least 6 to do the experiences with the animals but there is plenty to see & do plus you're quite close to the animals anyway so would be a great day... More
