Easter 2018 was an horrendously difficult time with waterlogged carparking and record numbers of visitors. However, since then things have been much more manageable. The extremely hot July weather has cut visitor numbers drastically; one can hardly blame folk for choosing a trip to the coast over cuddling a lamb! No radiation here!

Note that, to ease our donkey’s work-load, there will be tractor and trailer rides instead on busy days. It’s a case of one or the other, but not both.

The maternity department has been busy this year. We still (at the end of July) have newborn lambs, a new kitten, baby alpaca, Shetland foal, chicks and ducklings. We will be open every afternoon in August, come along and enjoy!

Come on in - the water's fine
