Lovely to see such well looked after animals at play★★★★★
Definitely a good one for kids to see, staff are lovely and obviously love their job. small place but very tidy and otters seemed SO happy★★★★★
I came here for the otter experience and it was great from start to finish. Keira obviously loves and cares for the otters an enormous amount and it was clear from her enthusiasm and knowledge of them.
