This is a great place to take younger children they can see the horses, there is a small petting zoo and largish play area for them. The horses and other farm equipment is interesting and they have a small well laid out garden to visit

Great day out for all the family. The Suffolk Punches are stunning. Loved the other animals too. Demonstrations were very informative. My Grandson loved the tractor and trailer ride. Plenty to see and do. Looking forward to going back soon. �

Went here today and really enjoyed it - despite not being a "horsey" person. You have to take it for what it is, a place that keeps this magnificent animal from becoming extinct. It's not a zoo or farm trial. Cafe was excellent and good...More

Hardly anything to see or do. Don't bother going. Love Suffolk Punch horses and travelled a long way to see them (my friend came from Surrey) and it wasn't worth it.
