$70 for a family - ouch! Overpriced for what you got. We paid our money then were pointed to the back door and that was it. We wandered aimlessly to some animals and although a lovely walk, it would have been nice to at least...More

Thanks, it's lovely to hear you had a fabulous day here at Sheepworld. Many people don't realise that Sheepworld is great for all ages and nationalities, and locals too. So thanks for letting everyone know that!
