After enjoying your walk, take a well deserved rest in our Woodland Café. With views of the our woodland, meerkats, goats and giant tortoises this is a lovely place to stop and take a break. We serve a range food, from cream teas and cakes, to burgers and panini's. We have a number of gluten free and vegan options too, just speak to a member of staff who will be happy to help and advise you.
We are proud to support a number of local suppliers and makers and offer a range of souvenirs from pocket money items to lovely gifts.
We have a lovely picnic area the woodland with seating and additional space for your own picnic blankets.

Beautiful place. Very damp and slippery. Good gripped shoes is what you need for all the climbing. The paths are steep and covered in tree roots. We had so much fun here, the kids loved it. We did the red route and extended to the purple route and we were back to the top in under an hour. We didn't rush and we also explored every area. There's a small cave too. After the animal interaction at 14:00 we did the blue route where it asks questions and you find out the answers on the next sign as you walk round.

Lovely place to visit, had a lovely day there, see all the animals and done some lovely walks. See the falls and had a lovely cream tea in the cafe on site. Parking was good. Booked on line for tickets really easy to book etc.

This is a must go if you are in the area. The tickets may seem pricey, but for the amount of stuff there is to do, it is so worth it. If you come before 1 p.m., you can do a Feed the Meerkats session (£1 pp). It was quite fun, especially since the keeper was nice and explained everything quite well. There's a bunch of other animals to check out, and the walks are really good as well (we did the blue trail, which was really pretty). It's definitely a place to visit!

Quite unique. Animals too see, picturesque views everywhere. The walks down the stream are stunning, with easier trails for those that need it, finished off with a visit to the cafe on the way out. A nice way to spend a good few hours.

Fantastic day out with the kids. They enjoyed the activities which kept them motivated to follow the trail. We did the blue trail which is ideal for anyone of walking age; we want to return with the older children to do the other trails. Lots to see and do. Talks from the animal keepers, opportunity to feed meerkats and see the snakes up close. The animal enclosures and buildings are wheelchair/buggy friendly but as the reserve is based around natural landscapes, the trails are not.
