Very welcoming and helpful staff and volunteers. If I were ever to win the lottery, I would help this place out massively. Animals are so well cared for and just generally a lovely visit.

We took disabled residents to the centre as advertised as being opened. After long drive only to find it closed. Poor residents very upset

This is a fantastic place with opportunities to get close to its residents. We arrived at about 2pm as we'd been incorrectly told it shuts at 4pm (it shuts at 3). Free entry, they have a bucket by the entrance for donations, which they desperately need, some of the residents need specialist veterinary care. I did something I'd never done before, I helped Bath two of their biggest horses! Bosun and Pierre, both huge gentle giants, giving them a good scrub and hose down alongside one of the dedicated volunteers. As a 'reward' I got to lead Pierre (he was actually following Bosun, I was just there for show) back to the field.I fell in love with both of them and it made my holiday! It's a bit of a magical mystery tour to get there, but well worth a visit as you can get as close as you want to these beautiful giants. In the words of Arnie, "I'll be back!"

While I support the objectives of this centre to act as a sanctuary for horses, the visit here was disappointing; we spent only 30 minutes at the centre due to the lack of attractions to see. Didn’t see any birds of prey as advertised on the website. The website also states disabled friendly; however we had difficulty getting my mother-in-law’s wheelchair through the entrance. Not somewhere I will be going back to unfortunately, which is a shame because the objectives of the centre are admirable.

Visited The Medieval Tournament with a friend and what an enjoyable day it was. Charitable organisation that gets little of no help other than by donation. A nice little coffee shop and the animals are loved and well cared for, lots happening throughout the year so check website.
