Great place for kids and Adults, lots of animals to feed , plenty of space to run about and play hide and seek in the beautiful gardens. Stunning Georgian House with a sloping lawn that is perfect for rolypolies down towards the lake,can't wait to go back in the Summer to have a picnic and explore further. Cafe staff were so friendly and we had the best cup of coffee and baguettes for a very reasonable price.(better than Costa and Starbucks.

Good deal. But there was lots not open and available. No tractors to go on and no birds to look at. The milking cow was also broken

ALTHOUGH THE WEATHER WAS CHANGEABLE AND THE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS WERE OVER WE HAD A VERY ENJOYABLE VISIT TO THIS COLLEGIATE STYLE COUNTRYSIDE PARK AND GARDENS. THE SPREAD OF DOMESTICATED/FARM ANIMALS WAS ABOUT RIGHT AND THE PADDOCKS SEEMED WELL MANAGED[AS PART OF ANIMAL HUSBANDRY COURSES PERHAPS!]. THE RESTAURANT IS A SHARED FACILITY WITH THE STUDENTS SO DON'T EXPECT A BROAD CHOICE BUT WE HAD A VERY REASONABLY PRICED AND TASTY ONE COURSE LUNCH THERE, AS WELL AS TEA AND CAKE AT THE PARK CAFE. DESPITE THE SHOWERS WE SAW EVERYTHING THERE INCLUDING SOME STUDENT ACTIVITY WITH HORTICULTURE! WE DID NOT HAVE THE ENERGY LEFT TO DO THE WALK TO NEARBY HARDY'S COTTAGE , A NT PROPERTY,[ AS IT WAS ALSO RAINING, BUT WE DID DRIVE THERE TO COMPLETE OUR DAY TRIP!

Lovely spacious animal park, lots to see and lovely walk around the lake. Plenty of opportunity for children to interact with animals and help with feeding. The young staff were very helpful and encouraging to my young grandson.
