I really wanted to like Earnley after reading some of the reviews but unfortunately it is badly in need of refurbishment. Some of the reptiles and rabbits looked in poor condition and it made me feel quite sad. The location is lovely and the staff...More

Visited during our holiday, the place does come across a little run down in places, the Gardens were lovely, and the kids enjoyed the little game of finding the hidden pictures to win a balloon. The Butterfly and bird enclosure was fun to walk through,...More

Horrid place. Most enclosures were empty and those with animals in were run down and dirty. The donkey was shivering and was jumpy. Disgusting conditions. Smelt bad. Gardens were half dead and the ponds looked filthy. £9.50 per adult and I was almost reduced to...More

Hmmmm. Where do I start? I'm torn between being annoyed that we paid £29 for a family of 2 adults and 2 children to get in, or feeling sorry for them and glad that they're trying to make a go of the place. We came...More
