For lunch you can choose from sandwiches, toasties, paninis, wraps and salads including vegan and vegetarian options. We also offer tempting hot food; baked potatoes, pies and pasties, sausage rolls and our popular gourmet chunky chips. Sweet treats include scrumptious cakes, traybakes, cream teas, toasted teacakes and ice-creams.

In the high season ‘Pip Stop’ refreshment hut offers ice-creams, snacks and drinks. It is located at Pip’s Corner alongside a picnic area and an activity area for young children.

The Gift Shop

Our gift shop is packed with wildlife-themed gifts suitable for all ages and budgets. For children we offer high quality soft toys of all the favourite British species, such as otters, foxes, pine martens, hedgehogs and owls. We also offer pocket money toys and stationery.

There’s plenty for grown-ups too, all with a British wildlife theme. The range includes home-ware, ornaments, jewellery, ladies scarves, bird-feeders and locally produced honey and beeswax products. We also offer exclusive photographic cards and mounted prints of our own animals, by our Head Keeper and resident photographer, Matt Binstead.

Sadly, during these unprecedented times we have of course had to close to visitors and help minimize the spread of Covid-19 and relieve pressure on the NHS. Our source of income has entirely stopped, whilst many of our costs are ongoing. The feeding and care of our animals is our top priority. Our Head Keeper, Matt and his deputy, Izzy are working very hard and long hours to ensure that our high standards of animal welfare are maintained.

We are appealing for donations to help us to survive during this challenging period. Any donations, large or small, will be very much appreciated. We would love to be here for you when normality returns, so you can enjoy the animals and continue to share our passion for Britain’s wonderful wildlife.

Thank you

Every penny of every donation will go towards the care of our animals.
