  • Lots to see and do. Feed the farm animals, watch feeding time with the seals and penguins. Butterfly enclosure brilliant, walk through colourful butterflies. Disabled access and toilet great. Highly recommend. All money goes to rescuing the seals. 750 so far.
  • Been many times and love each and every time, brilliant for all the family and great entry price. The butterfly house is beautiful and beautifully maintained. A well deserved visit, helping such a good cause 🐧
  • Despite the small park size there is a great deal to see making the entry fee well worthwhile, plus a lot of the money they gain is used on the seal rescue and sanctuary side of things which they have great success with. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, particularly with disabled customers. The animals are well looked after though some of the exhibits are a little dated; they are still excellent for the money they appear to have. The butterfly house is amazing in summer and there are alpacas and a petting zoo which are excellent for adults and children alike. Highly recommended, and the family ticket is a good deal. Lots of car parks nearby :)
  • Having changed very little in the last 10 years this place is looking somewhat dated and a little tired. But still worth a visit. Some great conservation work being done here and the entry money is not unreasonable.
  • Great for kids, both mine loved it especially the seals and the butterfly house ad the butterflies kept flying really close to us the food is great too xx
