Suitable for ages: Young Children (4-8), Older Children (9-12) and Teenagers (13-18)
Venue type: Outdoor
Hidden deep in the valley is the Chestnut Conservation and Wildlife Park, which is home to some very special types of animals.
This otter and owl wildlife park is more than meets the eye. As you wander through the park, you’ll find surprises deep in nature as you spot a beautiful fallow deer and the unmistakable fur of the red fox, before meeting a tiny harvest mouse and an impressive eagle.
Keepers are on hand to answer every question you have about the animals. Find out if owls’ heads really do turn all the way around and how otters build their dams. If you want to get even closer there are keeper experiences on offer that’ll take you behind the scenes and show you how to care for the animals first-hand!
Lovers of wildlife can create memorable moments!

Avoid save your money waste of time, cafe poor not a great choice unless your a potato fan, overall place in general poor, staff as existent as the animals advertised and like to give you dirty looks when there's construction materials blocking the paths and you want to get round to see what you paid for which was literally two animals and odd piles off rubble blocking the way, we were not informed of this when paying at the top of course. Enjoy!
