We had a fantastic day at Knockhatch yesterday. Our children aged 8 & 10 didnt stop playing from the minute we arrived, until we left. The highlight of our visit was going to the animal shows, Nicky and her husband, were so passionate about the birds and animals at the centre. The information they gave, and the interaction with their charges were amazing. The great thing about Knockhatch is that it hasnt been commercialised like Drusillas, therefore the entry costs are really reasonable, and great value, and the food, drink and ice creams sold there were really well priced too. Although there are a few activities that you have to pay extra for, the majority are included in the price, and even our boys were content with these activities ....

Took my 3 kids (3, 6 & 9), wife, both sets of Grand parents and my mums next door neighbour... What a day!! Something for every one! 100% recommendation. I also suggest you stay at the travel lodge about a mile away as there is so much to do that you will either be shattered or spread it over two days!! Every photo of my kids play either on the park, on the adventure play area or with the animals they are smiling! LOVE IT!

We took our 8 grandchildren to knockhatch last sunday, and what a wonderful day they all had. There is something there for all ages. The children loved seeing all the animals and the baby animals. They were all amazed at the birds of prey display. It was a really enjoyable family day out with so much to see and do. Thank you to knockhatch for such a lovely day.

First time visitor and have to give praise to a wonderful park. We got there at opening time and the staff without exception were all extremely pleasant and friendly. The 2 Birds of Prey keepers were exceptionally friendly and happy to tell us about the birds as we were the only people walking through at that early time. Great place and great value

I do believe that Dan. F excelled himself today at the park. We saw him sorting out in the cattle barn firstly, then at the reindeer hut & chatted, then he was there driving the caterpillar ride.. Then later watched him doing the reptile animal talk at 3pm. This member of staff is a visual face of the park today for myself & my children, with lots of knowledge answering lots of questions to the visitors.. Every attraction we visited saw staff wishing us a good day & customer focused.. Well done I had a great day with my family.. From hastings. :)

I visited knockhatch today with my 7yr old twin boys & their nanny on 16th nocember 13. although off peak, expectations were met more than I thought they would be. The girl on the gate was welcoming and friendly, the hand out with timetable was very helpful that we used all day. My children & I had a really fun day. The staff were all very nice and friendly & I believe they worked hard & had a real Interest in the animals and visitors. The animal visitor centre was great & the staff had knowledge & cared About the welfare of the reptiles.. We all had a fab day and I would recommend it..

Thank you so much for all your work and support on Saturday, you really put yourselves out for us. We have had lovely feedback already on how nice the food was and how all the children loved running around and using all the facilities. The simulator ride was a big hit as well as the bungee trampoline as usual. Most of the families finished off the day with an ice cream and I saw loads of children with bright blue tongues from the bubblegum flavour ones. Everyone left with a big smile on their faces which made it all so worthwhile.

ANDREA Says:
We often visit Knockhatch and are never disappointed by the staff or attractions. We had another great day today Friday 10/8/2012 , even though it was very busy you could get on most things without too much delay. My only observation is that some people took advantage of the free boat trips and people were having to wait a considerable long time.We came in after 15 minutes which is ample time on a busy day to let the kids experience the boats but some took 30 minutes to 45mins which is excessive especially on a busy day ,maybe knockhatch could look into monitoring this better during peak times. We will be visiting again in the near future. Well done knockhatch..

We brought our two grandaughters to Knockhatch on Monday. We would just like to congratulate you on your excellent organisation. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and particularly enjoyed the Wild Kingdom and the Birds of Prey presentations - they kept us enthralled. We would also like to mention the wonderful staff - they all seemed to enjoy their jobs and made that extra effort to ensure everyone was well looked after. Many thanks to you all - we will be back!

I don't normally do anything like this but felt I must just write and say a huge thank you to everyone at Knockhatch. We have just spent our first ever time with you having bought our grandsons the keeper experience and the whole family has had such a brilliant day. Dan F was our guide and was so interesting and enthusiastic about his job and all of the animals. The two members of staff who did the wildlife session and the birds of prey were also great and I just know that this will be the first of many trips. I would happily recommend this as a great family day out and look forward to our next visit. THANK YOU

CLAIRE JOHNSON Says:
Visited Knockhatch today with a small group of our Level 1 students from Sussex Downs College. We all had a super day and had some challenging adventures. The wall of Doom proved to be a big challenge for a couple of students but for others who did give it a go it wa a roaring success and they did it time after time once they had conqured thier fears !! So what did we do .... We bounced on the air pillows -we walked with the wallabies - rowed on the pretty lake (mostly round in circles due to our "learner" rowers ) stroked the snakes - smiled at the Tarantula - stroked the Lambs - laughed at the Llama's and got friendly with the little goats. Our guide David was fantastic at persuading the learners to " have a go " at things during the day and he was very attentive throughout the whole time we were there. We will deifnately be taking other groups to Knockhatch - Thank you!

After hearing so many recommendations, we finally visited today. A fantastic time was had by our 2 year old son, who loved being able to get close to the animals. The bouncing pillows were fantastic. Froggy's was also enjoyed not only by my son but my husband too! The staff were all extremely friendly and made the day enjoyable. Thank you. We now have annually membership and will be returning weekly.

Received by email 22/05/2012 : I just wanted to write and say thank you for a lovely experience. Your staff were so kind, patient and knowledgable at my taster experience on Saturday. My husband and son had an equally wonderful time with the animals and your huge outside bouncy cushions (perfect for a little boy whose favourite pastime is bouncing on his parent's bed!!). Please pass on my thanks to everyone concerned.

Received by email 04/05/2012 : Hello to all at Knockhatch! We have just arrived home after our third visit to your park and each time I have felt compelled to send you an email...busy mumitus, this is the first time I've actually gotten round to it! Thank you so so much. Everyone has had such a wonderful time...again. I had to let you know how impressed we were with EVERY member of staff we have come across; enthusiastic, knowledgeable, caring, encouraging, patient, approachable and flexible (gushy but accurate). The 'hands on' nature of some of your enclosures and shows have provided a lot of joy to a lot of little people (and big) and the new show kept everyone enthralled; pitched beautifully, nice job! Your food outlets offer good quality food at reasonable prices; yummy pizzas and a welcome cappacino. You are developing a destination to be very proud of and be warned...we will be back ;o) Thank you, thank you!

I spent the day at your Adventure Park today (14th April '12) with my family and friends and we were all so impressed with how welcoming the staff were. In particular we were very pleased with the two people working on the rowing boats. They both showed so much concern for my youngest boy as he has a phobia of water and put our minds at ease knowing they were there. Thank you for a fun day out and we will be returning soon. We would be grateful if you passed on our appreciation to your staff. Many thanks, Samanatha

JEN CARTER Says:
We are a family of two children aged 5 and 4 and have had membership for nearly a year. We have used it so much and its fantastic value all year round. Many of my friends are members so its a regular meeting place especially during the winter in Froggies. We will definitely be renewing in a month's time (just for the fab hot chocolate alone). My children always have a great time and easily make friends to play with if we are on our own. The staff and very friendly, helpful and interact well with the children. We've had membership at several of the attractions but we consider this one by far the best. The other bonus is is covers every age range from babies to adults and all the in betweens - something for everyone! Not every attraction locally can say that. Well done Knockhatch!

Thank-you so much for the best Birthday I could ever wish for, Luke the keeper who took me around the park was amazing, he knew all the answers to every question I asked him. I loved feeding the chipmonk's, wallaby's and snakes. The animals are amazing and I had a fantastic time, I will never forget my day at Knockhatch. Can't wait to come back and go back out on the boating lake and ride the go-karts. (Animal Experience)

My wife bought me a Bird of Prey experience whichwe both went to on Sunday (24/9/11). I had the most fantastic day and my wife who has a fear of birds even held a Harris Hawk at the end of the day. Dan the Falconer was great and we learnt so much from him. There wasn't a question we had that he didn't know the answer to. We can't thank him enough for all the attention he gave us and how he let us get involved with all the preparations. Hopefully we can go back soon and see Tex and Nacho. Thanks again for a brilliant day.

Bank holiday day out at Knockhatch even sun was shining which is rare ....everyone had a wonderfull time had such a mix of ages but everyone had great time. This was our second trip here in less than 2 months but kids seemed to like fact they knew where everything was and which ones were there favourite animals. Definately enough to keep kids entertained all day finishing off with froggies so mums and dads or in this case nanny and aunties can rest and enjoy cuppa while kids play. all staff on both occassions were helpfull and friendly and we loved the fact that Tesco days out vouchers were able to be used. Great day for all family will def be returning probably for Halloween. Julie and some very tied kids and teenagers x...

We booked Jacob for an Animal Experience Day at Knockhatch as a surprise for his birthday. Jacob met Tom the Lamb, the wallabies, Dalai the llama, Pepper the pig, the chickens & peacocks and many more of the animals. He has not stopped talking yet! Now decided that he is going to work there when he is older! A fantastic experience and well worth every single moment. Massive thanks go to Dan, Josh (work experience) and we think it's Tim but could be Tom! You made Jacob's day!

'My Grandad wanted to book a day out for my Step-Nan's 60th birthday who is absolutely in love with all forms of birds. Knockhatch seemed the perfect birds of prey experience for her. My Grandad, Step-nan, cousin and myself all had a thoroughly enjoyable time at the adventure park, and infact my grandad wants to bring our youngest cousin back for Grandparents day! The guide we had, Richard, was really knowledgeable and friendly and added to the amazing experience. Definitely a fantastic dsay out for all the family!'
