Axe Valley Wildlife Park is a great family friendly attraction just across the border in East Devon. Situated in the beautiful Axe Valley, the Wildlife Park is a small and friendly farm with animals of all sizes, including flamingoes, zebra, meerkats, tortoises, pigmy goats and more. There are some great animal encounter sessions including handling a snake, tarantula or cockroach and hand-feeding birds.  There are children’s play areas, lovely shady spots for a picnic, a cafe, shop and other facilities.

It’s smaller than your typical zoo but you can get closer to the animals, there’s still a great variety and it is quieter. It is particularly suitable for under 12s, but good for people of all ages. Allow 2 to 3 hours to explore the park. There are refreshment points, accessible toilets, baby changing areas and picnic areas. Tickets are £11.95 for adults, £8.50 for children aged 3 to 15 and free to under 3s.

What our guests say

  • Very peaceful Park

    The wildlife is stunning, we were visited by the ducks on a regular basis which was lovely. Our visit was very enjoyable and we will definitely be back in the future!

  • 5 out of 5 isn't enough!

    This is simply our favorite touring park along the south coast. The location couldn't be better with views to die for and an abundance of fresh sea air. The park is spic and span and extremely well kept with very friendly staff.

  • Best holiday ever!

    This is by far the best Holiday Park I have been to. The views are breath taking with easy access to the beach and nice coastal walks to West Bay. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a stunning location, then this is the place to come.

  • A little bit of heaven!

    Golden Cap is a little bit of heaven. The views are awesome, right next to the sea. It's all relaxed and low key just how we like it.

  • Fantastic Park

    10 out of 10 is not enough for this Holiday Park. We have been here 3 times and we love it more and more every time. The park has all you need, with some pitches overlooking the sea and a great restaurant.

  • Lovely tranquil campsite

    The location was great as we could easily walk to the village or local beaches through the beautiful countryside. I would recommend this campsite to families for a peaceful and safe stay.
