Charming little attraction

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

Thank you for your review of The Miniature Pony Centre. We are pleased that you enjoyed your day out with us and our lovely animals. We are sorry about the long queue during pony rides, during the holidays we do have many more customers wanting to ride. We only have 2 pony ride sessions during the day due to staff... 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

We are a couple of big kids at heart and were very impressed by this little gem. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Animals were all extremely friendly and clearly well looked after. Plenty of space for them all and obviously well handled. Very clean and well maintained accomodation for them. There arent many places now that arent full of boring overpriced... More
