We popped into the cafe on a Sunday afternoon and were greeted warmly. Although they'd just stopped serving hot food, we opted for the cream teas which were great - reasonably priced, large scones, very tasty! The staff were friendly, helpful and polite, didn't mind an couple of substitute requests and were really accommodating. Will definitely consider it if we're... More

The whole of the new forest wildlife is just so beautiful and unpredictably adventurous that you will be amazed and lost in this beautiful natural park forest every time you pay a visit...I am a regular and have been visiting the park over the years and it's always a sheer joy and good for the soul.

Visited on a Friday, it was quiet which was great as we got good views of everything that decided to pop out and say hello! Lots of different otters, owls, a lynx and wolves. All the animals looked very well cared for and very healthy. There is not just one but two playgrounds & climbing frames for little ones, and... More

Whilst I appreciate it was February when we visited there were so few animals to see; two sad wolves, 8 wallabies and a giant otter aren't exactly a wildlife park. The glass on some of the enclosures was very scratched and dirty so you can barely see what, if anything, is inside. The toilets were very few in number, a... More

I took my two nephews of 7 & 3 to the park during half term. We had a fantastic afternoon there. The park was well set out and there was something around every corner to keep the boys entertained. Lots of variety of animals and the close up encounters were great for them to ask questions and find out more... More

Came here as a family with my 2 year old. We had a really good day, this was great for my daughter she loved the parks and seeing all the animals. The cafe was okay, food wasn't great, basic but edible. I will definitely bring a picnic next time once the weather improves. Really liked the shop and managed to... More

Great place, spent four hours there all the kids we were with loved it. Only thing I could say, is when you're in the playground and your little one is desperate for the loo it's a long way back to the entrance where there is only four female cubicles. Which weren't in the best condition and when it's busier must... More

This is a reasonably priced place and has many animals linked to the New Forest, but animals that you wouldn't see in the open New Forest they have wallaby's, deer, bison's, wolves, otters, lynx and many more animals. They have very nice and reasonably priced café just before the entrance/exit. The birds and various different owls were very interesting and... More
