"The farm allows hunting during the season, but only to keep the numbers of the game down."
"Very relaxing chilled break"

"We loved this place and We had a very relaxing time away in the zebra cottage with our kids. The cottage is so lovely and has everything you need and so great having the pool right in front. We saw lots of giraffe which our daughter enjoyed. It was the perfect place for us, our toddler and baby. The only down side is the quality of the bath and shower water but they do provide you with water for drinking and cooking but overall we absolutely loved it. Perfect place to get away from it all. Our daughter loved the animals coming up the fence."

"I loved the fire place and the spacious chalet. Maybe the lighting could improve and a television at least for the cold nights. But other than that, pretty awesome getaway..."

"The ambiance"

"The support and help supplied by your staff are a credit to your business. We enjoyed the stay immensely and intend going back.The only negative I have is the maps could be a little better as we were not sure where we were / were not allowed to go. This however allowed us to have drive adventures, so was not a problem at all. A bush camp for caravaners would be nice.away from everybody with just camping space for one or two vans with toilets. The rest we can handle.Wonderful and affordable. Cheers,."

"We had an absolutely great time at Slievyre Game farm. Richard, Emma, Sarah and Harry couldn't have been more helpful, although we were surprised to find out that although we had booked Zebra cottage with yourselves at SafariNow on 2/10/2016, it wasn't available for us when we arrived. So we were put into other rooms."
