It's only small but then it's a bargain to get in. A great range of animals though for such a small place.

Do not go expecting a Zoo or fancy animal centre . Hopefield is a sanctuary where they care for injured, abandon, old , sick animals .All the animals are cared for with the greatest respect. Reading some of the notices makes you ponder and wonder how some people can treat animals in this way. However if they are lucky enough... More

I volunteer at Hopefield Animal Sanctuary and love it so much. I see all the hard work that is required each day to keep the animals healthy and happy. I see the pure dedication and commitment from both staff and volunteers. I hear the lovely comments from visitors when they leave. I see the smile on the faces of children... More

Been with a 3 and 11 year old, who both really love animals. They got to groom the little ponies which they loved! Was nice to see the animals well looked after! Tilly the cat followed us around.

Every part of me wants to complain about the ignorant staff in the cafe (who only had to acknowledge my existence, instead of leaving me standing there for 5 mins while the made sandwiches and laughed to themselves) or the dirty outside tables or the rats running around the pigs... blah blah blah... but in actual fact, I must remember,...

Love the devotion and... More

I love hopefields, so does my little boy, the animals are friendly, well looked after and a pleasure to meet, as are the staff! The interaction is brilliant, event days are well priced and their veggie burger bar and cafe offer some tasty food, have been several times and fully intend to visit several times more
