Well looked after friendly animals. Lots of goats, sheep, alpacas & even some rabbits, guinea pigs & snakes! We ate in the restaurant too, fish finger sandwiches were delicious! Can recommend highly!

I took my daughter to the Goat Centre but the cost of £8 for an adult and child was overpriced for what there is to see. We spent less than 25 minutes going round and some of the cages that the animals are kept in...More

First thing I'll say is that compared to many animal attraction venues in the home counties, this place is considerably less expensive. Seeing the relatively low cost, I thought it would involve 3 pens of greedy goats and a couple of rabbits... with a cafe....More

The Café was not very clean and the staff were rushed, which resulted in rude mannered staff. The goats were friendly though, which compensated for the rudeness. Could improve with the children's play area/activities.More

While our grandson really enjoyed his day out here. We felt it was a bit of a rip off, expensive to enter, and lots of pens empty, inside and outside., the wash hands area very pitiful and dirty. Afterwards the café (Bistro) was well overpriced,...More

not bad for young children the goats are friendly and the other animals are acceptable for petting. Tea shop and cakes nice for adults but sadly not a lot more to see.

Yes, it is all easily accessible however there is no disabled toilet. My brother is in a wheelchair so I understand how annoying this can be! It is best on a sunny day as it can get muddy in poor weather and in the winter :)
