COVID update: the Animal Centre is currently closed.
Once it has re-opened, the Animal Centre, set in the old stables, is a great free place to take the kids.
You can meet many common farmyard animals, such as chickens, goats, pigs, guinea pigs, rabbits as well as more exotic species such as alpacas.
You may be lucky enough to spot a peacock up a tree or proudly strutting around the Stables Courtyard. Out in the park we have Highland cattle with their long horns (you'll spot them with their eye-catching long rusty red coats) and Shorthorned cattle in one of the fields along with horses and donkeys
The animal centre has knowledgeable and friendly staff on hand to answer all your questions.
Petting is not permitted and we ask that you do not feed the animals.
