  • A really enjoyable and unique experience

    A really enjoyable and unique experience. Our kids loved feeding the animals each morning. The Yurt was spacious, snug and warm. The outdoor kitchen was really well equipped (even included a pizza oven!)

    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 :-))
