  • So happy with this trip! 6 adults and 3 children. You have to book in at a specific time so visitors arent arriving at once. The park was alot larger than expected, with alot of animals to see...  more »

  • First visit here kids love dinosaur park and fairy trail you pay £1 per person for a tractor ride great play areas for kids loads of picnic tables only downside cafe shuts too early compared to farm about 4ish or there abouts farm open to 6 not a massive array of animals but have petting sessions with rabbits for kids there is a wooden shed beside bouncing for kids which sells a cuppa tea after cafe closes so not all bad no offers like free grandparents during the week you pay for everything in this one but a very enjoyable day staff very friendly
  • Awkward to get to if you use public transport. However it is well signposted. Pros ; only £7 per adult entry, kids under 3 are free. You can feed and interact with the animals. There is a fairy-tale forest with well known fairy-tale houses and plastic book pages outside them with the fairytales. Plenty to do for kids and adults alike. Cons; wasps everywhere, cafe is rather expensive for what you get but that's to be expected. All in all, we had a good time and our daughter loved it. You can expect to see goats , llamas, cows, donkeys , chicken , turkeys, ducks, swans reindeer , deer and more.
