Threatened with closure in 2003, the zoo was saved by the Heap family who also run the New Forest Conservation Park in Hampshire and the The Chestnut Centre in the Peak District.
The zoo is open 10am - 4pm in winter and 5pm in summer and at weekends the Otters and Meerkats are fed at 11.00am and 2.30pm, whilst the monkey feedings are at 11.30am and 3pm. Entry is £6.50.
