  • The Big Sheep is amazing. It's great fun for all the family. There's loads to do, and you can have a brilliant day. There are shows every half an hour, so there is always something to watch if you would like to. The shows are entertaining and interesting, and I especially enjoyed feeding the baby lambs. There are also rides here for children. The food was lovely, but came in big portions, so we were very full. The gift shop had a large variety of items and we ended up having a spending spree there! Was a really good day out!
  • A fun and exciting place to take the family. The young ones loved the rides as they are all family friendly. There's a lake where you can take out a boat and paddle round which is good fun for younger children. The indoor play area is fantastic and children under 2 have loads of room to play.
  • Brilliant place for small children. The staff were charming friendly and really helpful. The whole family enjoyed it but especially our 2 year old. Plenty to do. Highly recommend it .
  • Inadequate disabled access and parking, very hilly. The good is that the cafe is excellent and all the staff seem friendly and professional. The animal based activities are pretty good too.
  • This is a great day out!! Loads to do, friendly helpful staff & always something going on! Highly recommended!! Make sure you stay for the sheep racing - it's absolutely fantastic!!
