The Country Idyll children love Birdland, the tortoises being a favourite and our last visit resulting in our son falling in love with them so much that our very own ‘Usain Bolt’ became the newest tortoise addition to the Idyll family.

From flamingos to the great T-Rex and our favourite of course the giant tortoise, there is something here for everyone.
