    Such an amazing afternoon, so informative, and such fun to get close up and personal. Would highly recommend, all the staff are volunteers and you can see their passion for all the animals.

    We highly recommend this family and volunteered run place. We have had such an amazing afternoon being shown round by Charlotte and input from Lyn and owners Charlie and John. Charlottes knowledge of the animals was brilliant and she gladly answered any questions we had.The animals are well cared for and certainly have unique personalities, especially Bobby! We loved the Meercats climbing all over us, holding the owls and stroking the raccoons. It is very impressive to see all the hard work that is going into building enclosures for these animals. My advice would definitely wear wellies. We look forward to coming back x
