Our luggage did not arrive, so we had no tent and sleeping bags to use that night. The friendly owners were very helpful and arranged a comfortable night in an old caravan for us. The place is very peaceful, clean and well equipped. What a pity we could not stay longer...

We have been coming here every summer for 6 years now. we just love it here. Its perfect for our kids - the animals and the playground keep them entertained all day!! They especially love the ride on toy train!! The surrounding scenery is beautiful, and the staff are friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, of any age!! I cant wait to go back next summer!!!

We love coming back to the bird park, we have been about five times now and will be back. Facilities are amazing, campsites are spacious and service is world class. The animal park is added advantage for the children. Excellent spot to relax and enjoy. Fred and Gaye are amazing hosts.

We spent an enjoyable, albeit rainy, afternoon amongst the beautiful coloured parrots & birds, a large array of reptiles and character-filled farm animals. The kids loved it and we thought it was good value for money.

Brilliant. The park is a great place to see a variety of birds and animals that are all so well cared for. The park is very clean and well looked after. We stayed 7 nights in the camp ground in our touring caravan. Pitches had plenty of space for everything even when the park was full. Facilities very good and really clean. The bird and animal park is a great for kids of all ages with lots to see. Many thanks. We'll be back!!
