Hopefield is amazing, a sanctuary that inspires. I visited on an open day, and it was brilliant we took a picnic, but also used the cafe, for milkshakes and cakes yum! My twins were able to meet owls and and stroke a baby owl which was the cutest. The animals at Hope field are loved and well looked after. The... More

My fiancé and are I visited Hopefield for the first time on Sunday 29th June. For only £3 an adult and with all the good work they do, this animal sanctuary is a must see. It was raining on and off when we visited but we still had a great time. Such a good mix of animals to see -... More

Could do with a little bit of a tidy up in places, in a walkway there was lots of stinging nettles which is where the kids walk, a good variety of animals and worth a visit though

We went with family to the opening day. The place was a mess. Hardly no animals when its states over 300. They had a bird of prey show on and the whole thing was boring and the men doing it seemed to not be bothered with their job. I understand they are charity based and I hope they get the... More

Dear lil_aliy, We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your experience at our June Fun Day at Hopefield. You mentioned that there were hardly any animals, but we do actually have over 300. On the Birds of Prey Fun Day, the cats, chickens and ducks had to be put away due to the display, as the signs around... More

Love it all. Nothing here to dislike if you love animals. The work these people do is fantastic and they need all the support they can get. They totally rely on donations. :-)

I visited Hopefield a few months ago with my 10 year old niece. All of the animals here have been saved from terrible situations of neglect and abuse, but Hopefield is not a sad place. These animals are now loved, cared for, free and happy. I have since returned lots of times and have fell in love with so many... More

Having visited for the first time today,I have to say as OAP's who adore animals it was a "Treat". All of the animals are rescued from all sorts of nightmare scenario's and yet they are nursed back to health to live out their days in safety. You can even sponsor them and if this is one day I wish I... More

My 8 year old daughter loves all things horses and Hopefield is ideal to satisfy her curiosity. The may only be open for a few hours each day but at £5 for me and her you couldn't ask for better value. She loved every minute of our time there. In fact she enjoyed it so much that we went back...
