"Great place to take a toddler on a beautiful day that adults will enjoy, too! The park is large, lots of space to run around and see all of the animals - reindeer, alpacas, llamas, goats, pigs, donkeys, horses, turkeys, geese, chicken. There is good signage with interesting facts about the animals and it's fun to feed them (food bags are 1GBP each). Nice that they have several hand washing stations. The area is beautiful. There's a cafe and a little shop as well."
