Great park but food let's it down
apr. 2022
Fantastisk sted å ta barn for en dag ute. Personalet i utdanningssenteret som var sammen med reptilene og slangen er helt fantastiske. De var vennlige, kunnskapsrike og tålmodige med barna. Da kaffemaskinen kun serverte en halv kopp svart kaffe i stedet for latte, tok damen med seg koppen min til kafeen og dukket raskt opp igjen med en latte. Den unge jenta som drev med kyllinghåndteringen var nydelig og hun brydde seg tydeligvis om alle dyrene. Traktorturen var ytterligere 2 per person og tønneturen var ytterligere 3 . Mine barnebarn elsket turene. En flott dag ute for barn med en park (husker, sklier osv.) for alle aldre. Glidelåsen er alltid veldig populær. Det er lokalt for oss, så vi kjøpte sesongkort @ 40 hver for voksne og det samme for barn. Inngangsprisen er vanligvis 9 per person (for voksne og barn), så vi vil få veldig god verdi fra dem. Jeg har droppet en stjernevurdering på grunn av prisen på maten. 5 for en barnematboks, 5 for en barnepølse og chips og 3 + for en kaffe fra en maskin er rett og slett for dyrt. Jeg vet at prisene har økt i det siste, men jeg forventer å betale 3 eller mindre fra en kaffebar, ikke fra en maskin som bare gir middelmådig kaffe i en ganske liten kopp. Likeså med kostnadene for mat til barna. 5 for en matboks med kald mat som inneholder en liten sandwich (pluss en liten drink, en pakke pombjørner og en pose rosiner) er for mye. Den varme maten er OK, men ikke noe spesielt ved 3-4 for matboksen og 2-2. 50 for kaffen, jeg ville kjøpt hver gang vi besøkte, men med gjeldende priser er det for mye for for lite. Jeg vil ikke kjøpe fra kafeen igjen, og i stedet vil jeg velge å ta med vår egen. For alle som besøker er det en kaffemaskin vi oppdaget i utdanningssenteret der latten bare var 1 . 80 . Vi fikk ikke iskrem på dette besøket, men fra tidligere erfaring er iskremene fantastiske. Ikke billig, men de er gode med et bredt utvalg av smaker. Totalt sett er personalet en fantastisk ressurs for parken, men kostnadene for drinker og mat og myrstandarden la det ned. Personalet har åpenbart en lidenskap for å ta vare på dyrene og er veldig kundefokusert. Omsorgen de gir dyrene er veldig tydelig. De prøver tydeligvis å utvide og videreutvikle parken slik at det er godt å se

Fantastic place to take children for a day out. The staff in the education centre who were with the reptiles and snake are absolutely amazing. They were friendly, knowledgeable and patient with the children. When the coffee machine only dispensed half a cup of black coffee instead of latte, the lady took my cup to the cafe and appeared back quickly with a latte. The young girl who was doing the chick handling was lovely and she clearly cared about all the animals.

The tractor ride was an additional £2 per person and the barrel ride was an additional £3. My grandchildren loved the rides.

A great day out for children with a park (swings, slides etc)for all ages. The zip wire is always very popular. It is local to us so we bought season passes @ £40 each for adults and the same for children. The entrance price is usually £9 per person (for adults and kids) so we will get very good value from them.I have dropped a star rating because of the price of the food. £5 for a child's lunch box, £5 for a child's sausage and chips and £3+ for a coffee from a machine is just too expensive. I know prices have increased lately but I expect to pay £3 or less from a coffee shop, not from a machine that only gives mediocre coffee in a fairly small cup. Likewise with the cost of food for the children. £5 for a lunch box of cold food containing a small sandwich (plus a small drink, a packet of pom bears and a bag of raisins) is too much. The hot food is OK but nothing special At £3- £4 for the lunch box and £2-2.50 for the coffee, I would buy whenever we visited but with the current pricing it is too much for too little. I won't be buying from the cafe again and instead will opt to bring our own.
For anybody that does visit there is a coffee machine we discovered in the education centre where the latte was only £1.80.

We didn't get ice cream on this visit but from past experience, the ice creams are fantastic. Not cheap, but they are good with a wide range of flavours.

Overall, the staff are a fantastic asset to the park but the cost of drinks and food and the bog standard quality let it down. The staff very obviously have a passion for caring for the animals and are very customer focused. The care they give to the animals is very evident.

They are clearly trying to expand and further develop the park so that is good to see

Not a bad family day out, park is good and the small indoor play area with mini tractors, diggers, kinnectic sand etc is good too. There are barrel rides and a trailer ride which are a great addition, although these are extra.

I was disappointed with the animals though, there were only a few goats, sheep and lamas that you could feed. The holding of the guinea pigs and chicks was a bit chaotic but at least the kids got to have a go. All in all though it was good day out.

Would leave 5 plus stars if possible! Spent two nights in a pod. Staff are AMAZING all round… polite, interactive with the children and so friendly! Pod was amazing lovely and clean. Little park next to the pods was so much fun for the kids while I cooked. The shower/ toilet are brand new (or look it!) my little girl enjoyed a nice hot shower! Washing up facilities also have hot hot water and again are very clean!

The park itself is lovely! You can feed many of the animals and hold some exotic creatures too. The staff are fantastic answering many questions and encouraging those less brave to have a touch too! My children (7 and 4) loved the kitchen area and indoor slides.

I can’t wait to visit again with our friends in the summer months. Thank you all so much for a lovely couple of days and two very comfortable nights (even with a storm!)

Fantastic day out
Brilliant and welcoming staff who couldn’t do enough for us
We got to feed the animals, hold baby chicks and lots of exotic animals eg snakes and geckos
Food at the cafe was lovely and plentiful and reasonably priced
Tractor ride was great and very informative
The fact they allowed dogs was an added bonus
Well recommended for all ages with lots to do you could definitely spend the day
Thanks for a great day :)

I visited the Wild Boar Park a few days ago with my family. We all really enjoyed it! There was so much to see and do. My daughters loved the very spacious outdoor play-area, seeing all the animals in the barn (and getting to hold a little chick), going on a lovely walking trail and seeing more animals, seeing the Bubble Man (one of the many highlights!), going on a ride and finishing the day with a delicious ice-cream! They didn't want to leave! A brilliant day out and the staff are so friendly. A very memorable experience and budget-friendly too. We will definitely be returning in the future.

I recently stayed for 2 nights in one of the pods, I went with my friend, her mum and children as she had been before and said how good it was. I loved it! The pods, surrounding area and the toilets/shower were lovely and really clean, 5 pods so not too busy.

The kids loved the park particularly the play area and we spent most of our time there, I thought the facilities were great and the animals had plenty of space. The tractor ride wasn’t working as the tractor had broken down but the kids loved the barrel ride. Would say the cafe was a bit pricey but you can take your own picnic.

The staff were really helpful and friendly particularly when we had a wasp problem at the pods. Already discussing coming back next year!

Even for a day trip it’s great value for money.

We visited yesterday. The park itself is brilliant but there were a couple things that would have improved it. On the way in, cars queue on a very steep hill to check in at the window. There must have been at least 10 cars in the queue when we arrived at 12.30 but only 1 check in window and admittedly my car struggled being stuck on this hill for such a long time (about 15/20 mins).

I was under the impression you had to book online so I did that however people seemed to just be paying on arrival which slowed the process down a great deal. As a result, the park seemed to be at full capacity as there were no parking spaces left.

Is there any way we could park up then walk over to the reception to check in instead? Or have a seperate 'fast track' check in area for those who have booked online.

Despite those issues the park was great. A lovely cafe and picnic area at the entrance. An interesting mix of animals to explore and some lovely walking trails. Most of the woodland walks aren't pram friendly and very hilly. The tractor rides looked brilliant too.

Not worth the money. We went a couple of days ago. Cost me over 80 pounds for what latest 2 hours and that was eating lunch as well! Small park hardly any animals charged extra for a tractor ride and another ride. School camp kids had tones of what looked like 10 year old taking up all the park and throwing rubbish all over the floor. My daughter was in a wheelchairs and it's stone paths 99% of the time. If the bubble man hadn't been there this review would have been worse. Took 45 mins to get into it stuck In a queue. Won't be returning waste of money and the kids where bored after 1 hour!

This attraction is superb for the whole family. Our visit was on an overcast day, with the occasional spat of rain. This did not deter the kids in the slightest.
From the moment they spilled out of the car, to the time we dragged them all back, kicking and screaming at close time, they (all five of them) had the time of their lives.
First stop was the big bubble man, situated next to the car park and easily the kids favorite. All parents and grandparents were forgotten in the joy of chasing bubbles of all sizes from football-sized to those (almost) the size of zeppelins! Ian, the bubble man was incredible; never failing in his enthusiasm as he interacted with his audience.
Almost as fascinating were the animals, and the kids (and some of the adults) were soon feeding the goats and petting whatever came safely within reach.
There are a variety of walks into the surrounding woodlands, and these are all enjoyable and fascinating, and could occupy quite a while by themselves. There's much to see, to climb, to learn and to experience, for kids of all ages.
food, when we finally got a minute to sit and relax, is good, and is quite varied. We were able to grab a quick snack and a coffee, while the kids burnt off some more of their energy in the play area.
Overall, the Park is excellent value, and a great place to bring a family. The staff were all cheerful, attentive and took great pride in the jobs they do to make the Park a place we shall return to many times in the future.
Our sincere thanks to all that made our day so fantastic.

Don’t miss this visit if you have children or just want a relaxing day out. What fantastic value for money and a real hidden treasure in a beautiful location. For only £8 each and no charge for our 2 year old granddaughter we had a fabulous day. Friendly, helpful staff. Good variety of animals to view and opportunity to handle chicks. Excellent lay ground, cafe and walks. ‘Barrel’ train ride for younger children, tank driving for older children and delicious ice cream. We had a fabulous day out for only £16. We will definitely be back and can’t praise this attraction enough. It’s clear they have every intention of developing it even further. A perfect post Covid/ lockdown treat and tonic.
