The Hope Nature Centre is home to some very special rare breeds, such as Alpacas and Hebridean Sheep, plus Donkeys and Shetland ponies as well as the cute and characterful chickens. They also have more small animals such as Geese and Rabbits along with a variety of Birds in the aviaries.
Information and education is provided on the range of animals, most of whom one may also feed. They offer several acres within the large country park which is open to the public for a small donation to enjoy hikes and rambles. The park pond is home to a family of Mallard ducks, so don't miss the opportunity to visit in spring as they're bound to have had ducklings.
Children will also love the Fairy Wood by the arboretum where they have developed a number of mystical and fantasy areas appealing to kids' imaginations and playfulness.
