What more could you want for a pony mad daughter. We spent a few hours here with our two children and they throughly enjoyed every aspect of their time here. Cuddling ponies in the big field were a highlight but all the attractions were well thought out and fun. We will be back.

The family all visited here in June last year. The staff were helpful, the ponies are just amazing and my daughters loved the ponies who were very approachable and friendly. There was an adventure playground for the kids too which they really enjoyed. The staff were all friendly as stated and we'll definitely be going back again when the weather... More

Lovely way to spend an afternoon, but take your own picnic, if, like us, you have food allergies. Also take wellies/walking boots if weather has been damp.

Fair entry price, food seemed to be reasonably priced to although we took a picnic so only sampled a latte and a couple of ice creams. Animals were lovely and didn't seem to mind all the petting from adults and children alike. Que for the pony ride was too long and only on a couple of times throughout the day,... More

We took our 3 year old and she loved it. The centre is very friendly and so are the animals. It's a great experience as kids can walk up to the miniature animals and stroke them. The staff were fantastic and helped out little one on her pony ride and then stopped for pictures.

We love it here - the setting is stunning, it's not too expensive to get in and there is lots to do - you can walk around the paddock with the ponies (and pet them, if they don't mind). There are also other animals to meet, talks, a children's play area and (a quiet) area by lakes with ducks, benches... More

Visited the Miniature Pony Centre with my daughter and grandchildren aged 7 and just 4. Very friendly staff who made us feel welcome and provided information. Toilets were clean, accessible. Also plenty of hand washing and sanitising points. The children loved the play areas which were well constructed, clean, imaginative. 2 soft play areas, with one especially suited to under... More
