The fire, which is believed to have gutted the Visitor Centre & Tearoom, started just after 11am.
 
All of the visitors & animals at the farm were successfully evacuated, and no one suffered any injuries.

The cause of the fire is not thought to be suspicious, with early indications pointing to an electrical fault in an outbuilding.
