“Fantastic day out with the family!!! Great staff and facilities. The animals are so well looked after with children being able to get up close and personal with them. We had a great day riding the pony, feeding the calves, playing with guinea pigs, rabbits and chickens and having a BBQ in the train. Highly recommend it.”
