Reviewed 26 August 2014

We went here over August bank holiday weekend and it was great. Besides the charming otters are numerous beautiful deer and a very handsome stag. You can get so close and even feed the dear. There are meercats, wildcats, wallabys and loads more. It was much better than we'd expected and great for only £8. We had a scone in the cafe too which was delicious!

The centre is an excellent place to visit. Not only does it have dozens of otters but also deer and wallabies roaming around, several birds of prey and lots of other birds and animals. Make sure you are there for the birds of prey talk (you can get to handle them) and the otter feeding (check website for times). If it has been raining the woodland path might be slightly muddy in places but a decent pair of shoes is all you need. Excellent tea room too!

We took the grandkids to this attraction, and we were surprised at how smelly is was, if you have small children and pushchairs be prepared for them to be covered in duck poo! lots of nice walks but not much for little ones to see.

This is a very underrated gem. The staff are fantastic and the animals pens are all great.
We especially enjoyed the free range wallabies and deer.
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Wow what a great day out much
More than just otters lots of different animals and birds from wallabies in Cornwall to meerkats to deer and so much more fantastic lunch in the cafe
What a real gem of a place and at a reasonable price too.
It's a MUST SEE
