"Really enjoyed our stay in this clean and well equipped wagon. Having the zoo on site is a real treat especially when you can hear the lions in the mornings."

Paul Cotterill, Stoke-on-Trent, 5 out of 5, 11 March 2022

"We had a wonderful last minute stay in a Showman's Wagon back in November. The wagon was beautiful inside and out. Plenty of character. A wonderful surprise to be left with a supply of local goods/essentials. Convenient for entry into Folly Farm and able to hear the lions roar at night and see the rhinos."

Kerri Carben, Caerphilly, 5 out of 5, 07 November 2021

"We loved our stay in the Showman’s Wagon and have booked again for May. Brilliant value as includes unlimited access to Folly Farm which is a short stroll away. The wagon was furnished to a very high standard and spotless. They are quite snug, fine for two adults and two little ones. Excited to return."

Tracy Lewis, Cardiff, 5 out of 5, 20 May 2021

David Gattenberg, Cardiff, 5 out of 5, 25 February 2022

"We spent a lovely week in August in ‘Carousel’. It was lovely to eat outside on the bench and the kids loved the bunk beds, the lowest being enclosed enough for our one year old to sleep safely. We could see the rhino from the steps and hear the lions roar! Friendly wardens on site."

Jenny Setherton, Bideford, 4 out of 5, 29 July 2021
