“Needs building up more”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

The sanctuary is not just based on rescued animals, it's also based around being a vegan and giving up all animal products, and using none at all. The café is a bit rough, and very expensive, and is all dairy free and animal product free. I bought a cupcake not realising it was £2.00! The staff were friendly enough, and there are lots of animal themed goodies in the small gift shop. It was okay, the kiddy park isn't very good unfortunately. I don't know how long this park has been open, so am wondering if it's just beginning as a work in progress.

“Great place to support”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

First time in Norfolk and found it by accident. Thoroughly inspiring place to visit. They take in a huge variety of abandoned and unwanted animals and home them for life. Also do some hard-hitting exposes of the darker side of farming. Reinforced why we are both vegetarians! Pity it is so far away from where we live so we can't visit regularly but we now support their work financially. Nice that there are some people who care enough about animals to do what they do.

“BRILLIANT DAY OUT & PARADISE FOR ANIMALS”
Reviewed 20 December 2012

I finally visited this sanctuary which i have supported for many years especially to see my adopted piggy Billy Griffin.This is a lovely peaceful place, beautifully maintained for all these rescued animals. Wonderful experience for children too as they are able to see the compassionate conditions in which all animals should be kept.
How the one reviewer concluded this was terrible is a mystery....was it the same place! It is an animalrescue/sanctuary & it isnt just for shire horses. If you are interested in good animal welfare standards & keen to support a charity that fights for this for all animals, then this is definately the place for you!!
