Wildlife

Over the last 30 years the park has grown its animal population from rare breed farm animals to more exotic species.

With enclosures spread across 90 acres featuring Reindeer, Wallabies, Alpaca, Pygmy Goats to chickens – there is certainly plenty to see!

Our Animal Barn also features an ever changing variety of animals from goats to pythons and gives all visitors the opportunity to get close to our animals especially during our ‘animal cuddle’ demonstrations.

When Doug Douglas took over the management of the park he wanted to diversify the park’s wildlife. He is passionate about our children learning about the UK’s indigenous species, and with that introduced Red Fox to the park and plans to continue with introducing other native animals.

I was impressed at how knowledgeable they are and how informative the animal care sessions are.

British Wildlife

Felix & Rusty our resident Red Foxes were introduced to the park 4 years ago.
We have a herd of Red & Fallow Deer at the park situated along the Riverside Trail.

Rare Breed Sheep

John Douglas 30 years ago introduced rare breed Soay and Jacob sheep to Avon Valley and they are still featured today on the Riverside Walk with any orphan lambs coming to live in the animal barn in the Spring. You can also meet Maud & Joyce our Greyface Dartmoor Sheep and our Hebridean Sheep.

Rare Breed Cattle

Along the Riverside Walk we have Highland Cattle, Longhorn, Dexter and Gloucester Bulls.
