  • I've been to quite a few zoos and this is the one where I've felt the closest to the animals. Sure it's small and could do with some larger enclosures for some of the animals, but do the forget that they offer an important service in taking in unwanted animals, and the atmosphere there is lovely! Bring your friends, bring your children!
  • Brilliant place my kids loved it plus they loved the wild cats. Thw reptile show was great and the lions were even better.
  • They mostly take unwanted/dumped animals and provide them with the care they need. It's a small estate but does feature lions, a leopard, meerkats, lynx, birds, monkeys, lemurs a small petting area and a reptile enclosure (there are others).
  • The animals didn't have big enough enclosures and it looked like someone just had a bit of land and thought I know I'll make a zoo! Not 100% sure who looks after zoos well fair but this one needs looking at!
  • Lovely place with loads of different animals to see. Although I do think some species could do with a little more space for their enclosures.
