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.

Just had a short visit here on the way back to the airport. What good work they do here, children will love it. The horses and donkeys love to be fed and stroked. Well worth a visit.

Set in beautiful rolling countryside off a busy main road this "must see" attraction is situated on Richmond Hill and whilst alas not open all year round is well worth a trip if you like horses or have young children.With Manx families it's almost like a place of pilgrimage in that you have to visit at least once a year.Many...
