My wife and I regularly take our grandchildren here. It is simply a wonderful day out with a couple of youngsters. Get yourself on the "Bouncy flatbed thing" its tremendous. Take a picnic, buy an ice cream, have a bundle of fun.

My toddler had a marvellous time in the playbarn, outdoor play area and especially on the inflatable pillow. We ran out of time to see the animals! Looking forward to coming back on a regular basis.
