For welfare reasons, we take most of our animals off the public paddocks for a few months every winter season, with most of our animals going into the Animal Barn on public display, although some may be out of sight due to indoor space limitations at this time. If you are coming to see certain animals in particular, please phone in advance as animals on show vary from time to time, especially during the colder months of the year. When you work with animals nothing can be guaranteed and we wouldn’t want to disappoint you.
There is one wheelchair available for hire, free of charge and we seek to be accessible to all visitors. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are on hand should you require any assistance. We look forward to welcoming you.
