Get Closer to Wildlife!
A fantastic day out for all the family in the Cotswolds. Get eye-to-eye with Giraffe, walk with Lemurs and watch Zebras and Rhinos grazing in front of the Gothic Manor House. Explore the walled garden’s Tropical house with free-roaming Sloth, bats and birds. Watch the Penguins being fed daily at 11am and 4pm or take a ride on the train around the Park.
The stunning gardens and themed borders such as the cactus border, prairie style planting, wildflower meadows, exotic planting, tree ferns and seasonal displays make a beautiful backdrop to the animals. If you’re brave why not visit or Reptile House with venomous snakes including Black Mambas, giant anacondas and Morelet’s Crocodiles to name but a few. If that wasn’t enough the peek into our Bat House. Alternatively creep into the recently renovated Insect House with Scorpions, spiders, cockroaches and other bugs.
The restaurant serves hot food, snacks and cakes. Also around the Park are kiosks serving drinks, snacks and ice creams. Otherwise there are plenty of picnic areas. “The exotic planting in the old walled garden is amongst the best in Britain.” Stephen Lacey, The Daily Telegraph.
