We stayed next door in an amazing B&B and walked to see the horses. Anna was lovely and took time to explain things to us. She is so knowledgeable and kind. Well worth a trip as there are pigs, ducks, geese and a foal too. Our kids loved it! Highly recommend it

We combined our visit with a trip to Chillingham Wild Cattle. We loved meeting the horses, my daughter could have stayed with them all day. The food in the cafe was very nice and great value for money! Also excellent that it was dog friendly.

We visited Hay Farm on Saturday and what a wonderful day we had. We met John when we arrived, what an interesting chap, he very kindly employed the kids to help him feed the piglets. They had such good fun. The horses are beautiful. The kids loved stroking these gentle giants. The place isn’t a mass tourist destination. It’s just a really lovely way to spend an hour or so. The charge of £5 per adult was excellent value, our four children went free. My son particularly liked playing with their very friendly lab. Thanks everyone at Hay Farm, we will definitely be back soon!

As we were in the area we took the opportunity to visit this lovely attraction as I have always had a love of these gentle giants. For a very reasonable £5 each we enjoyed a leisurely stroll around the museum and stables. Many of the horses were inside enjoying a well deserved snooze which meant that we got a closer look at them than we would have had if they were out in one of the fields. Our impression was that these glorious beasts are very well cared for. We also visited the geese, ducks and pigs who also seemed very happy with their lot in life. We ended our visit with a cuppa and a homemade chocolate & orange scone each. And we also had the pleasure of meeting two friendly labs by the name of Cooper and, we think, Rommel. Definitely worth a visit if you love animals.

The care & love given to these magnificent Horses shines through when you visit Hay Farm. You are met with a genuine welcome & can tell with the enthusiasm of the staff they love working there and really care for the animals. There's no shortage of information too, either it being in the museum or a friendly chat with the informed staff. There really is lots to learn about the history & present day lives of such rare horses. The horses are friendly as are the pigs, piglets, ducks, dogs & the most adorable farm cat. You mustn't eat before your visit as you'll find Viv's homemade pies, sausage rolls, cakes & baguettes irresistible, reasonably priced & very generous with portion. One of Northumbria's hidden gems & it also has an amazing cafe worth a regular visit in its own right. I must also mention the gift shop , its full of great local crafts & gifts. I bought myself a beautiful cheeseboard with a galloping heavy horse done by a local pyrography artist. 10/10 a must visit
