Cheeky Charlie

Meet Charlie and Lola, mischievous twins who joined us in 2014.

Due to their penchant for greediness, kindly feed them only during designated animal petting times.

Cute Guinea Pigs

Our lively guinea pig community resides harmoniously at our ever welcoming family park.  Friendly and fond of attention during petting times, they revel in ample space to play and munch on veggies or hay.

The grandchildren loved the animals and the huge playing spaces.  They kept wanting to come back. In the end it made sense to buy.  Best thing we ever did – wish we had done it sooner.

Collaborating with Civil Engineer John Smeaton, Rashleigh commenced the construction of the Harbour in 1790.  Though Smeaton passed away in 1792, the Harbour was completed in 1804, marking a testament to vision, industry, and a place where history comes alive.
