Was a wet day when we went with our little ones. The owners were just lovely. Our wee ones just loved the animals. Plenty of lambs, piglets, goats. A very relaxed place to take children.

The best and most unique part about this place is that you can enter all the enclosures and get up close with all the animals and itโ€™s a really cheap but lovely experience. We even got to feed and walk the baby goats
