  • Very disorganised. The staff seemed tired and didn't seem to know what they were doing. We had lunch for an office event and the food wasn't that great. They forgot the pudding, so we weren't serve any. The animals are pacing in their cage. The place had seen better days, as it is a bit run down. This place could be so much better with a bit more enthusiastic staff.
  • First visit yesterday with my family and 3yr old granddaughter and what an amazing day we had. Fabulous place to totally relax with outstanding views of the countryside with animals freely roaming. The animals have amazing natural habitats and are well cared for. We saw breeds we had never heard of. Who ever designed this place have got it so right for children, families, all ages. Lots of play areas, eating and toilet facilities. The grounds are outstanding. The safari trip was brilliant and you see so much. Kim and Georgie prepared us a fabulous fresh lunch. We did not want to leave at closing time and will be returning shortly. Worth every penny and so great for kids especially to be able to play in natural sensory environment. One not to be missed.
  • Kyle Smith. What a phony. Who goes to a wildlife park with a broken leg. Day release from prison, was it? Hahahaha
  • I will not go again no animals were out the ones that were looked rough, unhappy and unsettled as some kept pacing up and down. There enclosure were small and muddy, no room to run. The actually safari was dangerous and scary, it felt like we was going to tip over as we were do close to the edge. We could Barely hear the driver talk about the animals through the monitor. Half way through the safari we got told the next lot of shops were closed so no food or hot drinks (it was freezing).. Ok .. Then the driver said we can get off and walk the rest as he doesn't go past the monkeys or apes so alot of people got off but failed to tell us the zoo was closing!!! Then we get to the very end we get told to hurry up and leave but we couldn't due to my friend had a broken leg. He gave the reciption his girlfriends car keys for a wheelchair to be able to get about but the reception was shut and know one to be seen. So we had to try and find someone and when we did they gave us nothing but attitude. We really wanted to go into the gift shop and buy a cup and a pen but that was shut too! Nothing was sign posted clear enough. And found we where going in circles half the time. so for two family's and friends it was a waste of money if you want a day out go to the beach
  • Came here a couple of years ago thought it was great, we returned last week big disappointment, the truck(road) was terrible couldn't see many animals. .Last time we came the truck driver was very friendly and funny, this time he hardly spoke. They have spent too much money on the dinosaur park, the rest seems to be neglected from our last visit. Will not be returning.
