This place is a little gem. Yes it may seem a bit unkempt and maybe even dirty, but please remember that it is a working farm with real animals and that is what farms and animals do. Look a little deeper and appreciate what is going on here. They are striving to maintain part of our heritage, both with the beautiful heavy horses many types of which are endangered now, and with a fantastic collection of old carriages many of which have been lovingly restored.
They also provide homes for older horses here, some of whom have had interesting lives working pulling beer drays and having other roles. Also found on the farm are an assortment of other animals many of these having had interesting lives. Hence the turkey in the gents that another review commented on!
You need to have an open mind about this place- appreciate it for what it is, a very real piece of our heritage. Chat to the people here, they are only too happy to share their knowledge and stories. It certainly isn't a plastic and artificial fixed exhibit in a museum. It's a real living and breathing thing to be explored and valued. Appreciate what it is trying to do and support it. It will be worth the little bit of effort. We're certainly going back!
