I loved my trip here, the owners were lovely and so helpful at showing off the animals. A variety to see and a cross between a smallholding and an animal sanctuary. The craft shop was great to see all their homemade artist talents, a hidden...More

Home to horses, donkeys, chickens, rabbits, alpacas...run by a lovely couple who work hard to keep the place running smoothly. If you are in the area it is worth the visit..and Poppy the 4 week old alpaca is adorable!

We have been coming here regularly for several years and it is always a pleasure to visit and see the variety of birds and animals especially Angus the eagle owl. Also lovely art work and hand made gifts for sale.

We very much enjoyed our visit which was much enhanced by the personal attention of the owners. There are some interesting rare breeds in a relatively small, unspoilt area of land. Wel,l worth a visit.

We got a really good welcome when we arrived. Grandchildren allowed to pet the donkeys and other animals , including rabbits, which they really enjoyed. Nice little circular walk through aviaries. Don’t be put off by the not so pristine buildings, they hide some very...More

I doubt it as some animals are roaming free. It’s very compact though so your dog will see you from the car whilst you potter about. It’s great fun!
