It is over-priced for what you get. You can easily walk around it all in half an hour and perhaps just stretch it out to an hour at a push. We had to wait quite a while for someone to come to the entry counter...More

Thank you for your review and for pointing our our dreadful customer care skills. They are truly dreadful and the staff have been spoken to and chastised accordingly.

We took a 3year old to see and feed the fish (and ducks too). The village can get quite busy though parking seemed generally available. The trout farm has enough to interest young children, the fish jump for the food immediately, and there is a...More
