Spent a lovely afternoon here with my granddaughter. Things to do, horses, nice cafe with lovely food. Easy to get to by car or bus and all the money helps keep the home going for retired horses. Ticks all the boxes.

We visited this home of rest for old horses, which was originally for the wonderful tram horses. Now you will find tram horses, ponies and donkeys. It is in a really beautiful setting with lovely views. Everyone is welcome and there is no entrance fee. The horses are extremely friendly and love a fuss, and if you have a carrot... More

The horses are truly well looked after, you can buy horse food pellets to feed the horses and donkeys and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The current owner took over from her mum and you can see she is very passionate about the welfare of the horses.

The horses, ponies and donkeys have a really calming effect on you. They have acres of space to roam in which was nice to see. They are really well cared for and look in great condition. It was great to buy some pony nuts from the gift shop to feed them with, this also helps to raise much needed funds... More

This is such a great place to visit. Really well run and the horses and donkeys have great surroundings. Feeding them horse nuts is the best part and helps fund things as well. We went back as well on the way to the airport.

Beautifully situated near to Douglas, with lovely views, this is just the right place for the old retired Tram Horses from Douglas to live out the last days of their lives. The cafe is very clean and neat, with popularly priced items, sandwiches, toasties, cakes etc. We went there twice during our TT holiday.
