A great day out for the family. Children will love to feed the horses and donkeys. They have a range of horses including those retired from pulling the tram on Douglas promenade. You can buy bags of feed in various sizes. There is a restaurant which serves snacks Check with the site before going as they don't open every day.

We had been going every week for a few months, and we will start up again soon. Cheeky horses, and plenty of laughs. Great for confidence building, and discreetly watching nervous visitors is fun in itself. No reason not to try it, and whilst not for everyone it is convenient and cheap so no great gamble. Give it a go.

We went when the Xmas lights were on and it was a great visit, the different games, horses, Christmas themed things were lovely. However we queued for 1.5 hours to see Santa, a long time for a 8 year old. Maybe a ticketing system could be sorted out.

Lovely setting home to retired tram horses and donkeys. Although not open everyday it's worth making time to visit this attraction. Cafe and gift shop make this ideal for all the family.

Inexpensive family day out. It's free to look at the horses, you can buy feed for about 50p so if you have a large family thee isn't really any hidden cost. Cafe is totally reasonably priced or you can bring your own picnic!

I absolutely love this place. I always visit when I visit the island. They care very well for the horses, the ponies and the donkeys. The place is always spotless. You can feed the horses and adopt any animal for just £10 a year. Great charity that makes a huge difference to the lives of these animals. Their website seems... More
