Animal Park & Camping Reviews

* * * * * Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant.  Ellie E – June 2021.

An amazing experience shared with friends and family including our dog which is just the best. Couldn’t fault anything and all the staff was friendly too. Amber JNS – Facebook June 2021

Great place. Had a fab day here for our dons birthday. Staff are friendly and helpful, great range or activities for the kids, new playarea is great. Our kids favourite things were the barrel ride, kinetic stand stations and holding the baby chicks.  Jack P – June 2021

We had a fantastic day today! Only wish we could’ve stayed longer. All of the staff were absolutely fantastic and couldn’t do enough for us. The cafe was spotless and food was excellent. Our 18 month old had the time of her life! We will be back. Lucie R  – Facebook June 2021

Hidden gem! Great place to take children. Good safe play area, zip wires, tractor rides, chick holding, rare breeds, walks, cafe, shop selling farm produce, ice cream and more. All sustainably produced with renewable energy. The staff were all happy and friendly. Easy parking too. Good for several hours of fun.  David G – June 2021

Fantastic place for the whole family. Lots of animals to see and brilliant playground for the children. My little boy loved holding a chick and stroking the farm animals. Lovely little ice cream parlour too. – Tracy S Facebook June 2021

Anona in the office was fantastic with her correspondence and especially helpful regarding changing the date of our stay due to covid restrictions. We stayed at a pod and were kindly placed opposite friends so we could socialise without disturbing the other visitors too much.  The pods were small but very clean and had helpful hooks for storage as well as lights and a double socket and a curtain for the door (although not for the window, but this wasn’t a problem) The facilities were immaculately clean and the shower was fabulous (a normal one rather than one of these short, press the button and hope for the best type). The camp site has a climbing frame, swings and slide which entertained the kids well. The fire pit/bbq entertained the men.  Access to the animal park was a great idea meaning we didn’t have to go off site. The kids loved the barn with kinetic sand, tractors to ride and basketball. They also got the chance to hold a chick and guinea pigs. The larger animals were spread out well so there was a decent amount of walking (lots of dirt paths so take more than flip flops!) The large play area was fantastic. As always the sunshine made all the difference to our weekend and I’m not sure how enthusiastic we’d have been in torrential rain but that’s the nature of camping in the UK! All in all a brilliant weekend away and we’ll definitely return, possibly to the lodge which looks amazing! Thanks for a great stay 😊  Anonymous – June 2021

This is mine and my husbands second stay! We absolutely love it!  The layout of the pods the cleanliness of the facilities and the staff are all amazing!  The new lodge looks absolutely beautiful! Hopefully will be booking this in the near future!  Bethany A. Ribbleton, Preston – May 2021

Thanks for a lovely day (16 July 2020).  I thought that all your staff were very helpful and welcoming, and doing a great job to make your visitors welcome during the currently covid problems. All the facilities were open and working well and we all had a great time. You have got a lovely site and fascinating animals, all looking contented and very well looked after. We will certainly be coming back!!  I don’t do TripAdvisor, Facebook or other social media, but I’d be happy if you every wished to quote my comments in any of your PR or advertising if you think it would be useful.  Very Best Wishes  Colin A, Cumbria

Just want to say a massive thank you for today.  We all enjoyed the day very much, despite the rain.  Oliver thoroughly enjoyed the barrel/tractor ride and for not even being 2 he wasn’t phased by it at all and was nice to be able to walk at the side of him. Although he did let his feelings show when it came to the end and he had to get out. He was not impressed haha.  If you could send me some leaflets I will gladly put them in our shop for customers to see.  Thanks Again,  Sally – July 2020

Thank you so much for a fantastic day!! Amazing set up for social distancing. Every member of staff was so friendly & made us feel so safe in the current circumstances. My little boy & us grown ups had the best time. Thank you Blue heart Clapping hands sign – Sarah, Bury – July 2020

We cannot wait to come back – we were gutted when our little break was cancelled 😭 due to Covid!  You are the best little campsite ever!  We love staying in your pods. And you make my little girl do this face… and her twin brothers do them faces 😍😍😍 – Bethany, Coppull – July 2020

Great staff , easy to find and a nice walk which can be spaced out with activities enough to last the whole day. Great with kiddies and single parents likewise. Frey, Liverpool – February 2020

PIGS, VERY BIG PIGS I mean, who doesn’t like pigs, this place has pigs, I mean really big pigs. Big Pigs that chase you, Big Pigs that snort at you
PIGS EVERYWHERE Just mind where you step. Luke, Southport – March 2020

Wonderful place to take the family. We stayed in a pod for 2 nights and nothing was too much trouble while we stayed there. Our son needed his antibiotics kept in a fridge the whole time we were there and every single member of staff helped us, right up until 9pm! Outstanding customer service! The pods were everything you need whilst away from home and the shower/toilet blocks were impeccable. Looking forward to staying here again! A very big thank you to everyone who helped us while we stayed there! Natalie – September 2019

This is our go to place during the kids hols. It’s great and a very good value day trip for the family. My girls love the chick stroking and feeding the lambs. The little piglets are just sooooo cute. You can buy bags of food to feed the animals too at the honesty box. The tractor ride is really good and the kids playground with zip wires is fab. Michelle, Blackpool – September 2019

Thank you very much to all of the helpful staff at the wild BoarPark for a wonderful overnight camping experience (They went above and beyond to help). Helping us to make memories. The two shower cubicles are lovely, warm, clean & modern. Climbing frame is available on the camping site for the children to use when Wild Boar Park is shut. The customer service on park was fab, hot cooked food from the cafe was delish and especially the yummy cakes. The children are looking forward to a re-visit. Thank you very much. This is a place that children can grow up visiting. It is big enough to keep the children amused for hours with masses of green grass to run around on, lots of trails to walk, big tractor/ trailer ride, barrel ride & mini tank experience, not to mention a large peddle tractor area indoors and a big outdoor play park. This place never fails to impress my two (age 7 & 9 who have been visiting since pram size).
