  • Absolutely fantastic, great for the family for a good day out. All the staff are kind, friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable. We have been here several times and will continue to do so. Highly recommend making a visit here!
  • This place is great for children who adore wildlife. There is so much to do here for the adventurous child. A great Park for the older children to play in, and a smaller Park for young ones. There is a large selection of animals to take in and enjoy. They do a season pass at a very reasonable price, this is somewhere to visit more than once.
  • Could quite easily spend the whole day here. All of the animals seem well cared for, apart from one or two who look stressed but it could be mating behaviour according to the signs on display. Would highly recommend it for a couple or a small family. We've been twice now at 2 and 3pm until it closed at 6pm. I'd recommend getting there a bit earlier so you can catch all the feeds and animal talks. Only areas that I think need improving is there are some exhibits not on the sign posts and the map may be slightly out of sync where the bees are kept
  • Wild wood was OK but is called wild wood because that's all you saw ......woods . I think was over priced for what it was. Over half the exhibits we're empty or under construction , the exhibits with animals in most could not be seen, and they really need to invest in a gardener/grounds keeper as the entire park was overgrown. Having that said the bear enclosure with the rope bridge was by far the best part and the kids park at the end was pretty good..... Below picture of the beers and 1 of the many empty enclosures. Also a penny press would be a good fun edition
  • Lovely day out with an interesting variety of animals, different to your typical zoo and plenty of well written interpretation panels. We particularly enjoyed seeing the bison, elk and brown bears and the kids loved the high rope bridge across the bear enclosure. As with all these places there is unfortunately a play area which meant that the kids pestered all afternoon to go on it but as play areas go it was pretty impressive. My reason for not giving 5 stars was that some of the animals were absent (wild horses out on loan) or not visible (wolf enclosure was being upgraded), some areas were a bit tatty (although it is a charity so understandable) and only one set of loos at the entrance (3 year old needed a wee when we were at the other side of the park!) On the whole a very enjoyable and interesting day out with helpful, friendly staff and a healthy looking array of animals.
