A lovely day out with the family and friends. Very clean and tidy. We decided to make a weekend of it and hire a static home through a company called 2cHolidays, which made the weekend so much better!

We took our granddaughter here during the half term holidays. We were totally charmed by the place, which has a bit of an old fashioned charm to it. The tiger enclosure is fabulous - definitely a highlight. I, personally, fell in love with the red...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon at Thrigby! Whilst there aren’t huge amounts of animals there, everything was well spaced out and the animals had loads of room. We particularly enjoyed the cats and monkeys and the tropical house was great fun.
