  • Enjoyed my first visit with my grandchildren - the animals are so well cared for and in a great environment. There's a variety of things to keep children amused so I'll be visiting again.  more »
  • Absolutely love it here and visit whenever I come down south. The staff are friendly and the cafe is brilliant. My daughter absolutely loves looking at the horses. It is more for animals rater than a commercial zoo or petting farm but feel that the contributions go towards helping look after rescued animals. Last time i went there were some cheeky donkeys were lovely. Hope to return soon.
  • Spent a lovely family afternoon at the santuary. All the staff were so friendly and the animals have fallen on their paws, hooves, trotters! They are all well and truly loved and I most definately recommend a visit, you wont be dissapointed x
  • this place has lovely animals but I am discusted with the public toilets on the farm. They are appaling with the damp toilet rolls the black dirt and malde on the window seals and toilets didn't flush !!!
  • Brilliant. They really care for the animals.
  • Good place to go for a simple day out that isn't expensive (about £3 per person/child and £1 for under 4s when I went). It's not a full farm/zoo so don't expect every animal under the sun, but they had pigs, cows, lots of horses, geese, chickens and a small insect/reptile house/hut. They possibly had some more things that I missed as well. They also have occasional events with entertainers and people in costume wandering around. One thing I will advise is to wear wellies as it can be quite muddy in places (especially if it's just rained).
