Me and my family went from Sweden to London mostly because of visiting The Big Cat Sanctuary. we booked an overnight stay, the experiences and the food were included in the price. it was really worth the money.
we did this trip to london for my 25th birthday. when we got into our cabin, I received a letter from the staff wishing me a happy birthday.
The food and afternoon tea were very nice and tasty. The three-course dinner was very nice and good, but not really to our taste, the breakfast was fantastic.
the whole experience of feeding lions and jaguars was so much fun. we had a guide both days. he gave us very good information about all the felines and was able to answer all our questions. if you get the chance to do this, don't hesitate!
this was the best experience I've had and the best birthday present I've ever received.

We stayed here in September 2022 for my wife's 50th birthday. It was very difficult to find the place, even with satnav, but once we got there it was worth it. The lodges are very nice and the setting is beautiful. The staff are very knowledgable - explained everything about the animals very well. And of course, the animals were amazing!!! We had a lovely meal in the restaurant - very enjoyable evening. The experience was something different and we really enjoyed it. However, there was one major downfall that spoilt it to a certain extent. Next door to the sanctuary there is a company called Premier Coatings, which makes plastic or bitumen coatings for piping. While we there, the smell coming from this company was horrendous. Whilst in the lodge, we couldn't sleep in the bedroom because the smell was so bad. It gave us severe headaches and basically no sleep all night. We do wonder how hazardous this could be to the animals. We do believe that a health and safety official should visit Premier Coatings.

Staff are truly helpful and kind,food is great with a good choice,and accommodation is very good in quality timber buildings.the staff who conduct the tours are very knowledgeable and clearly love the cats and their jobs ,who wouldn’t??. So save up and have a wonderful experience whilst supporting such a necessary cause .

I was given a personal experience with an overnight stay in one of the lodges as a special birthday present from my family.
We had a lovely welcome from the staff when we arrived. Our Lodge was lovely and big the food was excellent too. My whole total experience seeing these beautiful wild cats and feeding one was just amazing from start to finish. I would definitely do this again.
Thank you to the staff in making this experience a memorable one.

Wow what a place, We went for afternoon tea, Not gonna lie it wasnt the easiest place to find, it is in the middle of knowhere, not sign posted until you get to the main access gate, but i guess thats done on purpose. Leave plenty of time, navigating down some twisty country lanes fallowing sat nav directions + road closures and diversions. Coffee, finger sandwiches, small cakes was really good, alcohol beverage also available
A place to get up close and personnel with some of the worlds big cats without being right next to them. The facility / grounds areas that allow you to get so close is insane. The cats are active / healthy and look happy. The site wasnt over crowded with people, there was plenty of space to move around and get close to the cats next to glass / enclosures.
A impressive sanctuary i would recommend to any body with a interest / passion for big cats to go and experience what we did. When you first look at the website you may initially think its quiet expensive, but remember it is a charity and you do get insanely close to the big cats, far closer than going to any zoo.
I whole heartedly recommend this experience and shall myself be revisiting in the future.
You will not be disappointed.

I bought the Paul Hollywood Afternoon Tea with the Lions as a present for my Dads 50th birthday, and safe to say it’s one of the worst presents.

Firstly, for the food, I am so disappointed in what I have seen they have been given - Paul Hollywood surely didn't create a menu and recipes that was a basic bland afternoon tea that consists of a couple of cheese and pickle, egg mayo, ham and mustard sandwiches, some minimal chocolate dibbled over bland eclairs - did they run out of chocolate? All the food is so poorly made, cut and displayed. The portions were tiny and the fact I was asked beforehand about dietary requirements I had high hopes they were going to take this into consideration and provide an outstanding menu, but this wasn't the case and my parents had to go straight out for food after. I let the Big Cat Sanctuary know that my mum eats vegetarian and neither of them eat fish or seafood - this is because they are allergic, and they were served smoked salmon which is simply ridiculous that something as important as dietary requirements and me asking for no fish or seafood was not met. We have been to some lovely afternoon teas that are outstanding for the same price just for the afternoon tea and it was immaculately displayed and didn't have a celebrity chef's name to them. Paul Hollywood's name has only upped the price when the price doesn't reflect the food given or the service or the experience. My partner is a chef and was appalled when he saw the images I was sent at the quality of the food, the amount of the food, and the overall costing that just does not add up even if you added the wander round the Sanctuary in. You wouldn't even be able to buy a chocolate eclair of that standard in any supermarket which clearly shows it should not have been served at an afternoon tea.

Next, the Lion enclosure, I was not informed in any form that the enclosure where the afternoon tea takes place next to wouldn't have a lion in it and the ledge had been painted so the lion wasn't even allowed in. Painting in an animal enclosure is surely something that is planned and should be done on a day when you don't have people visiting specifically for the Afternoon Tea overlooking the Lions enclosure or you would contact those attending and let them know they need to be prepared to be disappointed and that they wouldn't get the experience that they were expecting. Seen as that experience only takes place at the weekend We fully understand animals cannot be directed on where to go, however the fact that they didn't have the option to go into the enclosure and they still let the experience happen is mind blowing and disgraceful, if the enclosure was open and the lion didn't come closer on the ledge then this wouldn’t be part of my review and the email I sent to the Sanctuary, as we would be able to understand this but I really cannot understand what drove them to still take my money and let the event happen. Nowhere in their website does it say you may not see any lions during the afternoon tea, or they may not be allowed in; this is false advertising as it doesn't state anywhere that 'You will have afternoon tea and may not see any lions in the enclosure' to prewarn people. They clearly got a great photo of Paul Hollywood next to the lions, so this is where the expectation is set firstly (and now I know it is false advertising) when there is not a lot of information about the afternoon tea upon booking. When you pay this much money (£120!!) for an experience at your venue and one that a huge well-known chef that Paul Hollywood's put his name and face to it with the 'recipes' which was the whole reason for booking was thinking they would get some amazing food and a great experience. There is no menu online which means you have to put all your trust in the sanctuary and Pauls reputation, and when I have known people to have visited for experiences with them before, so I didn't think twice that there would be this huge problem of it all being such the horrendous experience it turned out to be.

£120 really does not cover at all what they received for the afternoon tea and looking round the sanctuary (I have seen what you sell Open Day tickets for so even taking this into consideration with the food served does not equate to £120, at best cost price of this afternoon tea wouldn't even hit £10) and in this current climate it seems like you have just used theirs and Paul Hollywood's popular name to sell an experience that is half arsed just to take extra money from people.

My parents emails and the email back was in no way apologetic or understanding, which also upsets me as for someone that works in hospitality and events myself I was shocked when I read the response as it didn't seem like anyone cared at all, they simply just want the money. I have since sent the above review and have received a refund and just an email back saying they will refund... again no compassion or understanding.

We stayed overnight at Leopard Lodge.

Everything about our stay exceeded our expectations. The Lodge was immaculately clean, with good attention to detail. The food was delicious and plentiful. The main attraction was, of course, the Cats. Our tour guide, Emily, was engaging, knowledgable and funny, and clearly knew her charges (and their likes and dislikes) very well. We hand fed Willow and Neron, which was a fantastic and memorable experience. We learned about the genetics of various species and associated illnesses, and why these are detrimental to wild animals. This is not a zoo; whilst the animals are in captivity, their needs are obviously paramount to the staff, and it is apparent that a lot of thought goes into the habitat and any potential breeding.

Yes, it would be lovely for these Cats to roam free, but sadly that is not always possible, for a variety of reasons.

We would not hesitate to return to Big Cat Sanctuary.

I bought an overnight stay for my husband as a present and it was an amazing experience.

Meals (afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast) were excellent with the most lovely staff looking after us. The lodge itself was great and waking up to a roaring lion in the morning was a first.

Mikey conducted both of our tours (first afternoon and following morning) and was excellent. His knowledge was second to none but it was his passion for the job that really stood out. The highlight for us was hand feeding but the whole experience was fantastic.

I would definitely recommend this as a special experience and well worth every penny.

The Best Day Out! Really well organised. Fabulous weather helped. Car parking stewards were lovely and helpful. The actual experience was fantastic the beautiful majestic cats were extremely well cared for and looked nothing but chilled out as it was a hot day. Some great falconry displays and well executed narration from the younger falconers. Very informative indeed. Lots of food stalls but picnic areas scattered all over the sanctuary. Water butts were installed too, which was very needed. The only thing id say is where the sales stools are you're missing a trick as there could be so much more in terms of boutique style eco shopping. You could get another 8 or 10 stalls there! All in all a fantastic day out and would recommend in a heartbeat. The tireless conservation they do here is on point. Please visit and support a fabulous worthy cause.
