This is a very special place to visit as they are doing a wonderful job keeping the Suffolk Punch horse breed flourishing, the Suffolk Punch horses are lovely, such gentle giants with amazing eyes and soft mouths!

Visited with family, the grandchildren loved it. Staff very friendly and informative and had time to answer any questions. Plenty to do, the horses there are beautiful. Plenty of other animals to see and they enjoyed the ride. A good family day out
