Nice horse sanctuary. We were greeted by a volunteer who showed us around and introduced all the horses and ponies. There's a nice little coffee and cake cafe on site too with lovely homemade cakes. Very much a horsey persons paradise.

Visited Penny Farm today. What a lovely little place, a volunteer showed us round and it was great hearing some of the horses stories. What a fabulous rescue centre! We had some home made cakes and a cup of tea - reasonably priced and the white chocolate and raspberry bake was divine! Will definitely pop back in next time I'm... More

We love visiting penny farm, it is free entry and plenty of free parking. The horses are really well looked after and loved, the staff do a fantastic job! There are lots of horses inside and plenty more out in the fields to see, the walk around outside takes about 1 hour, it's lovely on a nice day, but plenty... More

This is a free venue and we were offered a free tour around the farm (with absolutely no mention of donations). We saw some of the horses that have been rescued and we could stroke most of them. The farm was clean and you could have a walk in the grounds, though children have to be careful of the electric... More

A fantastic place to visit for a few hours and great that it is free to go in. We went with three children and they all loved and enjoyed seeing all the horses - could have easily spent more time here. Child's quiz was fantastic to do as was grooming the ponies - excellent value for money and well worth... More

We visited on the recommendation of our friends. It is a very friendly, welcoming place. The cafe is nice. We aren't really horse lovers but really enjoyed our tour around the stables. The staff obviously love their jobs and care about the work they do to look after horses that have been mistreated, neglected or just no longer wanted. If... More
