MUMMY MONDAY | GENTLESHAW WILDLIFE CENTRE



























Hello lovelies, this post is very photo heavy incase you couldn't already tell. Yesterday we wanted to do something a little different to our normal Sunday routine of a soft play place or anything like that so we googles 'family day out near Stafford' and lots of options came up, I loved the idea of the Wildlife centre and I know Oscar loves animals so I thought we was on to a winner, Dan was happy enough to drive us to Eccleshall just over half an hour away from where we live and somewhere we have never been before, thanks sat nav! 

The Wildlife centre itself is situated just behind a garden centre, they have been going since the early 90's although its founder Rob Smith had been rescuing birds for many years before that, the centre was then open to the public in 1993 just hosting a few rescued/unwanted animals then the centre soon got more and more rescued animals. Some of the animals that they take in have never even seen their own kind of species before which is really sad but you can tell how well they are all looked after, the atmosphere is so relaxed, clean and the animals are gorgeous and look well. It is only £4 per adult to get in and the only way they stay open is by that small price tag and people's donations, I personally think they should charge more especially as they do such a good job and take in and look after unwanted animals and get them back to their usual selves. We all really enjoyed the animals, my favourite had to be the cute little marmosets, monkeys are my favourite animal and these tiny monkeys are so cute I really wanted to take one home. They also have reptiles, meerkats, bats, wild dogs, wild cats, owls, all sorts of birds, black capuchins, coati mundis, kinkajous, racoons, macaques, pigs and rabbits so there is plenty to look at. 

They also have a lovely little park there which they have a little pig sty and rabbit hutch on which is in the middle of the cutest little train, me and Dan both wanted a go so we took it in turns to go on with Oscar as it was only £1 a go, it took you all around the wildlife centre which you then got to see pony and horses and the ducks on the pond, Oscar really enjoyed himself and kids under 3 go free! It was a really cheap day out and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves we even started the day of with a bit of crazy golf, Oscar cheated a bit but had lots of fun. 

I am still trying to get to grips with my family life now we have a new addition so please bare with me until I get a proper rota for my blog but I will have lots of beauty posts coming up soon and hopefully some fashion once I have lost some weight aha. Hope you all had a lovely weekend.
