The large number of animals are all very well cared for by dedicated and friendly staff who are always willing to answer any questions. A perfect place to visit which brings you very... More

Hopefields in situated in a farm type setting. The staff are lovely and work very hard. A sweet little tea rooms and a large variety of animals to see, who are obviously very well looked after. This is a great cause and supported by Leona Lewis. Hopefields needs lots of support, so every visitor counts! A very reasonably priced day... More

I took my two grand daughters here during the Easter break. It is a wonderful place and well worth the visit, especially if your children are animal lovers. Entry was only £10 for the three of us and it helps to support the sanctuary. There are lots of horses, ponies, goats, donkeys, pigs, hens, even a cow and a bull.... More

I was bought the gift of 2 sponsored donkeys for Christmas so I thought it was about time I visited them. I was pleasantly surprised at how many animals were there and how friendly most of them were - obviously well used to people. Yes it was a bit muddy, but not as bad as I expected. I would recommend... More

Visited on a Sunday and I was ready to pay the 3£ entrance fee, but they told us it was muddy and they wouldn't charge it but any donations were welcome... Both my wife and my 1 year old son loved it... Don't expect a zoo, it's a farm!! Animals with many problems in the past found happiness in this... More

We took our one year old daughter on a Sunday afternoon and the place was just lovely. They have play stuff for kids which was nice so my daughter got to play and meet animals. The sanctuary was reasonable in price and had a wide range of animals living there. Some of the horses aren't so friendly but considering they've... More
