  • It's always sad to see caged animals, but many of those seen at Gentleshaw seem to have been rescued. While being worth a visit, especially with children, it does have a somewhat shabby appearance. We...  more »
  • A great way to spend your time and you would be helping out animals in need. Small, but fabulous. It has grown in size since I last visited with some new animal homes. Lots of raptors, some with sad h...  more »

  • The kids will love it ( Adults too). Small but very well kept. Plenty of animals too see. Rescued too. Bird of prey display. Well worth a visit. Keep up the good work guys & gals.
  • Tucked away at the back of the garden center this was well worth the visit. Staff very friendly and helpful, plenty of different rescued animals. Worth going and nice to give more donations on top of admission money because its worth it.
  • A great place to take animal lovers of all ages. Well kept enclosures and a great selection of animals. When the weather is better you get to see some of the owls and eagles being flown in a dedicated area for viewing.
  • This is a hidden gem just on the outskirts of Eccleshall, we have been here a few times and its always a delight to see to birds, the staff are all so helpful and knowledgeable about all the birds here, and always keen to answer any questions. The cafe is a delight, has a good selection of really nice home made food, the cakes are awesome. The garden centre had a limited amount if plants for sale, but this is overlooked by the quality of what is for sale
  • The guys from the centre came into my school today to work with my Y6 children. They were passionate and knowledgeable about the animals that they brought with them (A peregrin falcon, a barn owl, a tawny owl, a neutral, a snake and a skunk) which linked perfectly with our Darwin topic. Not only were the staff enthusiastic about the animals but they were engaging and friendly with the children too. They had my class fully engrossed in learning about the animals and the importance of conservation. A fantastic afternoon and total value for money! Thank you for bringing our topic to life!!
