    We wondered how warm it would be in May, but it was cosy. I liked the civilized and funky facilities.

    Liked: the yurt idea, animal feeding and access to the zoo, bathroom facilities, friendliness of the owner. Location is a couple of miles from town, but thats no problem with a car....it was quite apart from the donkeys and the cockerel (and we were very pleased to hear them :-))
