We have bought season tickets as our granddaughter loves it so much. She loves the recent addition of walking the goats also her old favourites including feeding the lambs and lots of cuddles with small pets too. She wants to work here when she’s older!

We took 4 children, aged between 1 & 8, & they were all thoroughly entertained. There’s several activities throughout the day & lots to do. The kids had a great day & the adults did too!
