I've visited this sanctuary many times and have full admiration for all the hard working staff that look after and care for such beautiful creatures. Just a shame that the government doesn't help out with this cause, but I won't go into politics ! Perfect for an afternoon visit.

Just outside Brentwood town centre is this wonderful animal sanctuary. There is such a variety of different animals to see, the main being horses that love a fuss, many have been through so much in their past, but now they are in their element having good food, care and freedom to roam. The other animals are; pigs, peacocks, rabbits, ducks,ferrets,... More

Great place to see some traditional British and some exotic wildlife. All rescued. I adopted a cat for 10 pounds a year too.

Just Drive right to the end of the road until you can go no further and then you arrive at the centre, lots of different animals to see and pet, a very good job done by the volunteers and staff, donations go to a very good cause

This Sancturary works really hard to help poor, old and abused animals and deserves all the help they can get. They are doing an excellent job and arrange all sort of activities to try and get people involved and to support.

We visited hopefields for the first time on Saturday 19th September and loved it. What a lovely little find. Its small enough for my 16month old to walk around on her own. I loved that they don't offer meat as the animals that were saved were headed for the meat farms! Very muddy so wellies needed.

We visited when they had Minions out and about. It was brilliant. The place itself is the perfect size for little ones with lots to look at and do. Lovely little picnic area. We didn't eat food there but the prices were very reasonable to. Only downside was he amount of wasps :(
