  • Really enjoying ourselves, loads to do and really no need to pay for anything else. We had a Pony ride (£2) as our daughter is horse mad. But we went to 2 bird of prey shows, magic shows, mastic hoop slide, animals, adventure play parks, massive bouncy things,.... Loads to do! Loads of places for picnics and resting. I'm in a wheelchair and although there is a hill everything is close together and almost everything near tarmac path. Staff all been lovely! Chatting with kids, helping etc. Animals and attractions seem well cared for. £10.95 kids £8.95 disabled £5.95 carer As some soft plays are £6 I thought this really good value. We arrived at 11, it's 2.30 and still loads we haven't do e yet. Much cheaper than the park and we are well entertained.
  • A good day out although not particularly cheap. Approx £10 per person and that includes children over the age of 2. Then you have to pay extra for pony rides etc. Went for the pumpkinfest which included pumpkin carving, pumpkin hunt and slung shot pumpkins. Had a tractor ride, met the rabbits and a load of other animals. Plenty to do for the kids both indoors and out. Wrap up warm as it's very open and prone to winds.
  • So much to do .. never have enough time to do everything so always have to go back again.. my daughter loves it! And great for the price. Our new favourite place to go!
  • Small range of animals and the pumpkin festival wasn't accurately described. The pumpkin maze was actually just a corn field a very muddy one at that. So muddy that my little boy slipped over and was covered from head to toe. The pumpkin patch wasn't a real pumpkin patch which is a missed opportunity. Just a barn with some pumpkins laid on some hay. The restaurant cafe Italia was horrendous, we'd hoped to be welcomed but everything requested wasn't possible even though all the things were on the menu. My little boy is a fussy eater and loves pasta pesto, but they weren't willing to swap out Bolognese for a bit pesto. We won't be back terrible value for money. You have to pay extra for most things, pony rides pumpkin carvings etc. Total rip off co soldering it cost us £20 to get in for 1 adult and one 3 year old.
  • Excellent leisure venue/visitor attraction and so many great educational and fun amusements. I am so pleased that everyone can share and rate their experiences Google Guide is so much fun and I do love reading about places. The till operation and girl serving seemed to be of a suspcious nature like the Topshop Gatwick and police network. Ramped access and good cafe.
