  • Visited with my grandsons as a Xmas treat. The park looked very run down and bare. Seen plenty deer, which were beautiful. Bags of food for the deer being sold at reception, but once in the park there...  more »

  • Fun time spent with the kids - they got to go into enclosure with the deer and hand feed them which they loved - got some nice pictures, had a nice leisurely walk around and seen wolves, wildcats and moose. Falconry display was fun. Lots of covered areas to have a picnic or use the cafe, nice shop too. Play park in the woods too with a zip slide. Spent about an hour and a half here which was fine - £26 for family of four - can't complain at that surely
  • Decent for a family if you make a whole day of it. There are activities going on throughout the day and you'll want to get the most out of them, especially the falconry and carnivore feedings. The staff were generally friendly and engaged, and the enclosures are decent, although the wolf pen is indeed small for cursorial hunters. I have to ding it a star for the treetop walk being closed. It looks like it's been abandoned for a while, but you won't find this mentioned in their promotional blurb. The big negative was the egregiously sanctimonious lecture from the otter keeper. Carping on and on (and on and on...) and guilt-tripping your paying customers is a poor way to get them on-board with your cause. That frippet needs to zip it.
  • Popped in on our way back from St Andrews. Well worth the entry fee and some great sights. Red Fox, wolf's, birds of prey, bears! And of course deers. Great for getting some wildlife shots.
  • Brilliant place to take the kids as long as it is not raining. Look out for the animal feeding times, the otter's are my favourite.
  • Amazing place with a large variety of different species: Fallow, Red, Wapiti (American elk), European Elk (Moose), Chital (Axis deer), Hog deer, Barasingha, Reindeer, Sika deer, Milu (Pere david's deer), Bactrian deer, White-lipped deer and Chinese Water deer We managed to see them all except the Chinese Water deer, although the Chital were very shy too!
