Below is some lovely feedback that we wanted to share that we received on 21/10/23.
"I just wanted to email to say that Cillian and Marlene had a brilliant time at the reptile experience today. Chloe was lovely and gave them lots of information about the animals. Both children loved it!
The experience made Cillian’s 8th birthday really special and something he will never forget."
All experiences are for a set time that fits in with the animal’s routine. Owl experiences may not run all year, due to government guidelines during avian flu outbreaks. Studley Grange reserve the right to stop experiences if participants or animals are becoming stressed. No refund will be given.
