    Manor House Wildlife Park was taken over by well-known British TV star Anna Ryder Richardson and her family in 2008. Since then it has been transformed from a Zoo where animals were caged up to a fantastic spacious Wildlife Park where the animals have salubrious homes and acres of space to roam in if they need it. The life and times of the Wildlife park have been well documented in the TV series - Anna's Welsh Zoo.

    You can start your tour of the park in the Wallaby Walk through. The red-necked Wallabies are really friendly and will hop up to you to see if you have anything edible to give them. We visited in May so were fortunate to see lots of little Joey's. The gravel path will then take you on a tour past the Camels, Zebra's, Ostrich's, Emu's and then around to the star attraction - Lisa and Steve the Gibbons who also had a very small baby to look after. As you walk around you will also find flamingo's, Marmocet's, Ring tailed lemur's, meerkats, goats and Giant tortoises. I'm sure I've missed some out but it was great fun walking around watching these great animals. There is a lovely looking cafe in the main house, just in front of a huge picnic area if you decide to bring your own food. The picnic area is designed especially with the little ones in mind. It has space hoppers, ride-along cars, see saws and lots of little tee-pee type shelters for the children to play in. There is a nice gift shop near the cafe.

    All in all we were kept occupied and fully entertained for over two hours.

    Admission fees;

    Adult - £9.95
    Child - £7.95 (4-17)
    OAP - £7.95
    Free for ages 3 and under.

    Spot the Joey! He's got the hump! Lisa & Steve the Gibbons A rather strange looking animal! Kidding around!

    Is there anything better than fresh fish? Indeed there is: fresh fish you have caught yourself. For a small amount of money you can spend an hour or so cruising about the bay attempting to catch mackerel...which simply involves trailing a line of hooks over the side and wating for a twitch on the line to alert you to a possible result. Even if you dont catch anything (unlikely) it's a very pleasant little boat trip: and if the gods are with you you get fish as fresh as fresh can be. Gut 'em, clean them out, and sling them on the barbie.

    Izzy's is situated on the main road in Saundersfoot. The interior decor resembled a fast food restaurant & I expected to see various types of burgers on the menu. I was completely wrong - there was a wide variety of hearty food on the menu from fish and chips to a delicious rather warm curry - which I had. (We were camping in the area so a warm curry was just what I needed!!).

    food glorious food....

    My wife and I were quite tired so went to the nearest place to eat where we were staying. Sadly for us it was the Hean Castle. The food was disgusting at best. I ordered a Tahi red curry which had no resemblance to a Thai curry as displayed on their menu. It was awful and came with a side sald which was disgusting as well. My wife oredered the 'chicken breast'. This was even worse and was just a small pice of chicken breast and wing that had obviously been reheated in hot oil and served as it was completely dry and crinkled. The same for the chips-- they were definitely refried. The 'peas' were cold and hard out of a tin. Small side sald awful. The service was cold and unwelcoming and I was not surprised no-one came to ask if our meal was alright. I oredered a pint of Bass Bitter which was just going off as well. The place was also quite dirty. They obviously rely on unsuspecting holidaymakers as no 'locals' went in the place I later found out. Cards are not accepted and you are asked to use a 'link' machine to get cash to pay BEFORE they serve the meal. Of course, a charge is levied by the link cash machine. I really wanted to kick up a fuss and demand our money back but my wife was so tired and upset that she just wanted us to get up and leave and put it down to experience. I really hope no-one else has the same bad experience that we had.

    Favorite Dish: A truly disgusting place.
