Fluffy friends, adorable animals and farmyard fun await you at Northumberland Country Zoo!

Set in 15 acres of countryside in the heart of Northumberland there’s a wide range of animals to visit, from wallabies to racoons in the mammals’ section, to Shetland ponies, pigs and donkeys in the farm. There are also small adorable furries to visit or even reptiles and fish if you want something a bit scalier!

Once you’ve seen all the animals, pitch up and enjoy a game of mini golf, ride the pedal tractors or make the most of the outdoor play area! Don’t worry parents there’s plenty of seating and picnic areas so the rest of the family can enjoy some food and drink while the children play.

First visit: Initial thought: The whole place was well looked after, plenty staff around, reasonably priced, free on site parking, cafe on site, nice coffee! kids loved the Lemurs and the wallaby walkabout, and got their photo took with Millie the parrot. Well worth a day out!

Beautiful farm
