The Lakeland Wildlife Oasis is situated just a 17 minute drive from Beech Hill House bed and breakfast is a unique and exciting place to visit. Known locally as the 'North West's Favourite Little Zoo if offers a blend of exotic wildlife and interactive hands-on displays, which take you through 3,000 million years of evolution and follows the development of life on Earth.
Exhibits range from curassow to computers, from fossils to fossas and include some of the world's most threatened species which are kept at the Oasis as part of an international breeding programme.
Visitors can enjoy getting close to nature: butterflies, birds and even bats fly free among the exotic vegetation of the tropical halls. Lizards lounge in their open-plan enclosure, and industrious leaf-cutter ants can be tracked as they toil along their suspended rope walk carrying slices of leaf many times their own body weight.
Lakeland Wildlife Oasis is an all-weather attraction.
Open every day except 25th & 26th December from 10.00am
The tropical hall and butterfly house are ideal venues for wet days.
Staff are always on hand to answer questions and to let you meet some of the animals. Sunny days are enjoyed by many of the inhabitants, and the lemurs and monkeys love sunbathing.
