This is a great place to go and feed animals that are free to roam and to be able to get up close our three grandchildren loved it and the cafe has great food.

Good food, plenty of it. A very traditional cafe but plenty of space. Very good value and good basic food. Recommend the Sunday dinner but you might need to book.

Interesting site full of many animals, suitable for anyone, including small children. Thank goodness these kind-hearted people are there to help these animals who have been rejected/neglected. My young grandson absolutely loved seeing all the animals at such close quarters. There is also a walk...More

Response from John G | Reviewed this property |
No dogs; this is not a dog/cat rescue centre, more a small scale zoo for farm animals. The animals are not for adoption.
