Visited for a cup of tea and a look around. Nice cafe, tasty drinks and friendly staff. With regards to the animal rescue obviously they don't have big sponsors but the rabbits are a cause for concern. The majority are kept in cramped, tiny hutches, too small to get anywhere near recommended welfare standards. They have no hay which is... More

This is a rescue is run by caring compassionate people who spend their whole lives taking in unwanted animals and looking after them and trying to find them loving homes. Those animals that cannot be rehomed, stay there for the remainder of their lives. This rescue relies on donations and what it can raise on entrance fees. Those people who... More

Yes it's a bit shabby but the animals are loved and happy and the impact of seeing so many together is just magical. My 17 month daughter had the time of her life. Places like this need support, it's honest and trying to help animals many of whom seem a little ragged, rather than trying to make profits like other... More

Paid for the food but there was signs sayin dnt feed ponys so only things could feed was the chickens and geese that chase you. All the kids was saying they wanted... More

This is a rehoming shelter for a mixture of animals including owls, chickens, goats and pigs. Its very cheap to enter and a lovely little place to visit. The animals run free, which my two young kids adored. As well as feeding and walking with the familys a kind lady let them stroke the rabbits and ferrets. There is also... More

I visited this rescue centre a few months ago and absolutely loved it. It's great for anyone who cares about animals. Yes, things may not be absolutely perfect, but they are being looked after and well fed! It was great to feed the animals, especially the friendly goats and the noisy chickens! For only £4 it is really worth going,... More
