  • Very informative naturalistic displays and a rare opportunity to see native reptiles and amphibians up close. Children very interested and engaged. Site well kept and staff helpful.
  • It's so difficult to see our native species of reptiles and amphibians in the wild, so this centre is perfect to do just that, I was delighted to be able to see Adders in there natural habitat. The centre is a must to visit while in the area, friendly knowledgeable staff on hand.
  • Great place to spend a sunny day. Children love to see the animals and there is a lovely flat walk and picnic area.
  • It has developed from being just otters and owls over 20 years ago to now have a wide variety of beautiful British animals. It also has some of the best play areas for children we have come across. We keep coming back.
  • Reptile walking route not very clear. South to north and north to south clear but from the left edge of the triangle to the right edge, west to east, no market posts and not an obvious clearing which is the route as there is many. As the marker posts disappear we ended up trudging through very deep wet mud up to our knees to get back to the car park. However the staff at the reptile outdoor shed very friendly and lovely reptile displays. Just do them first incase you get lost on the route and are very muddy like us!
