Teashop and free access to collection of old horses and donkeys who are lovingly cared for. Watch out for the three legged cat! Friendly animals that enjoy being fed.

Always a warm smile and welcome. They remembered us from our last visit. We "adopted" Biggles. Always great to see the fabulous care of the animals that have served others well. Love this place.

Stopped here for an hour or so while on holiday. Free entry but donations can be given. Fed the horses and the donkeys and enjoyed a cuppa in the tea room. Definitely worth a visit.

This place is just what it says - a beautiful spot for some tremendous oldies to spend their retirement. And they love to meet the visitors ... And any carrots you may have with you. It's totally unpretentious with a modest cafe and gift shop....More

Great place on a nice day to entertain the kids for an hour. Horses are all very friendly, donkeys and chickens on farm also. Gift shop where you can buy food for horses and a tea room. Very accessible with a double buggy. We went...More
