  • Really nice grounds with lots of well kept gardens to see. Interspersed with animal sculptures which was great to keep our daughter entertained. Having been inside the house I probably wouldn’t bother going back inside, but would definitely visit again for the grounds. You can spend around 3hours here quite easily
  • We visited (with Grandparents + 3 & 6yr old lively boys) whilst the Elephant family were on display and thoroughly enjoyed the elephants and the grounds. The adventure playground was a huge hit. The only negative was the lack of benches/seating in shady areas and none in the playground.
