Visited with 6 and 8 year old - they were entertained the whole afternoon by all the animals - the treasure hunt kept them occupied in the spaces between activities. The adults - pig lovers, were happy too

We saw lot of different animals in a lovely setting - some amazing goats doing agility and camels and llamas - got to even brush their coats. We did some crazy stuff making bracelets out of the wool too - really interesting afternoon out

Fantastic place where people can get up close and personal with the animals, see the amazing work that has been done with the animals through shows throughout the day and ask the friendly owners and helpers many questions. Highly recommend to all!

We took the kids to see and were not disappointed, from the amazing owners Sarah and Paul to the magical encounters with all the animals there and playing in the woods. Its the most requested "can we go back" from the two little folk :) We will be back for sure.

So much fun, especially for children who can get right up close and interact with the animals. Lovely day out, bring a picnic.

I had a great time at La Maison, I was there in April, so there were all sorts of adorable baby animals, and feeding and petting them was the best! <3 Talula the llama even gives kisses!

What a great day out for the grandchildren. They had so much fun. We took a picnic and ate it in their woods, surrounded by wonderful animals. The Bird family were so hospitable and the whole day was an experience we will never forget. The best bits ? Too many to list really, but the camels were truly amazing. All... More

A great time was had by all - 4 adults and 6 children (from 6 months to 11 years). There's a warm welcome from the owners and the animals are gentle, you can 'get up close', and the children can pett and groom them. It'll be a great morning or afternoons entertainment, with camel rides, llama displays and an agility... More
