  • Had a great few hours here feeding deer and peacocks out of the hand!... I had to book quickly and get time off because, unfortunately, this is there last weekend before closing for good! But we have been told the animals have all been found nice new homes 'all things wild' (except for the fish, they didn't know what was happening with them).
  • Great place! The animals are all well looked after, and happy to interact with the public. The more nervous ones are behind fences for everyone's happiness and safety. Feed stations around each area, where for a nominal cost, you can get the appropriate food for the animals in the enclosure you are walking through. There are also nice areas where you can sit and just enjoy the views.
