    Lovely little place
    What a lovely little place, we came here whilst on holiday in Blackpool. Spend a few hours here looking and petting the horses my daughter fell in love with one in particular. The cafe is reasonably priced aswell. Would recommend

    Great Visit, interesting and excellent facilities
    Aunt Violet had her 100th birthday celebration at Penny Farm in March 2022 where she was treated like royalty. Violet and her daughter have kept horses for many years until their recent one passed on. All the tack was donated to Penny Farm. I had not visited here before but it was a fantastic experience to see all the rescued horses with their beautiful, large eyes resident in such well kept surroundings. Violets late husband was called Dalton and as it happened there was a lovely, ready to rehome Welsh Gelding called Dalton who took a liking to Violet. It was chilly in the stables and yard so we went to the cafe for a hot drink and cake. The cafe and toilets were immaculately clean. *** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ***

    Incredible work
    We visited for the first time this week after passing it many times whilst staying at Ribby Hall. It's such a wonderful place. The work they do to care and rehabilitate all the horses is truly amazing. It's free to visit but, it is worth adding a donation to help support their incredible work. I wish I lived closer as I would love to volunteer. When we next visit Blackpool, it will be on our list to return. My 6 year old son loved it and fell in love with a horse named Neil. We also visited the cafe and enjoyed the homemade cakes with a cuppa and purchased a hand knitted hedgehog 🦔 which had been created by one of the volunteers. Due to the weather we stayed indoors but there is a trail around the fields where you can see the horses which are outside.

It was fun to see the horses being looked after well by the people at the centre and being able to stroke them in their paddocks. There was also a nice walk with picnic areas on a lovely sunny day. The cafe at the farm is decently priced and provides much needed refreshment.

Visited for first time and was really impressed, what a wonderful place, so lovely to see horses running free in paddocks so well cared for, some horses are in stables in a courtyard area. Lots of these horses have a sorry tale to tell but have been nursed back to health by the wonderful staff and volunteers.

You can freely walk round, plenty of information boards to read and lots of staff to answer questions.

Entry is free and grooming sessions are available for children. There is a cafe serving very reasonably priced food, hot drinks and cakes. There is also a car park.

Would recommend a visit here.

I love horses and when I sa that you could visit this rescue centre I was insistent that we booked to go. Had a walk around, visited with the horses and spoke to the staff. Considering booking my youngest daughters birthday treat here as they do special parties. I just love what these guys do and the coffee shop great too.

Penny Farm is the most fantastic place to visit. The staff are so committed to giving first class care to the horses. They also give outstanding customer service to visitors. The cafe if great, lovely home cooked food at reasonable prices. We have been regular visitors for years, Julie and Zoe always come and say hi, we are made to feel like family. We cannot recommend it enough,

Delightful afternoon tea. All home baked tasty treats, lovely cream scones served with a wonderful smile. The horses all looked very sad, lots of long faces everywhere 😜. Very worthy cause and a great place to spend a few hours.

I took my daughter for a visit today. I wish I hadnt bothered. After being shown around the stables by a volunteer ( not in the least bit necessary ) we were left at the start of the "nature trail" I'm loathe to call it this as it was nothing but a boring walk around an open field with fenced in horses. OH AND THE FENCES ARE ELECTRIC. You are warned of this but surely there should be a safety fence built a few feet in front of this electric fence? Its easy for accidents to happen with kids running about.
To cap it all off my daughter was stroking a pony in an open stable when she was bitten. The attitude of the woman in charge was shocking. She announced children shouldnt pet the horses!!!???? WHAT?! Well why when I was shown round were we actively encouraged to pet the horses. Where are the warning signs???? There are none. She said she didnt know where the accident book was ( and didnt care ) and at no point did anyone offer any first aid / ice / cold compress to put on my daughters arm which was and still is 5 hours later , bruised and swollen.
Regardless of the bite I was not impressed. Its an utter load of crap and only avid horse lovers need even bother

It was so genuine, my heart pounded in seeing those horses in such a peaceful way, and also being taken care of in the most exquisite and loving envirnoment.
Theres no way, I wouldnt even think of not giving a donation.
This should definitely be a day out for every one especially at Christmas to add cheer to the heart and soul.
Do go and see the beautiful creatures at Penny Farm
