I will say this first off – it is not cheap to get in!
When we went (May 2016) it was £12.50 for adults, £10.20 for children aged 3+ although they did have family tickets available.
The attraction also allows a carer in free of charge, so in the end we just paid the £22.70 for me and Sam, while Daddy came in as a carer.
Sam adored the park animals, donkeys, deer, goats and llamas being just some of the animals who live at the park.
You can buy food for the animals at reception, just mind your fingers as the goats can be a tad nibbly…!
As we visited in May there were plenty of babies around to see, from chicks and ducklings to lambs and calves.
There are a variety of activities during the day, including bottle feeding the lambs and calves, to duck, ferret and sheep racing.
One of the activities we couldn’t take Sam on was the Deer Train; unfortunately this isn’t wheelchair accessible.
However if you have a child who can sit up or sit on a lap then this would likely be suitable for them.
For us the highlight however was a falconry display – the staff running the display ensured that Sam was located right at the front to give him the best possible view.
They provided us with chairs so we could sit with him, and going out of their way to ensure that he could enjoy it as much as anyone.
The bird handler even made a point of getting two of the birds flying in the display to come and settle on a perch no more than a foot away from Sam, so even with his poor vision he could see them.
Overall we had a lovely day at the World of Country Life and would definitely recommend a visit if you’re in the area and animals are your thing.
