Majestic
Aug 2021
I decided to visit the home for rest of horses as I could not take the horse tram this year due the road works. I am pleased I visited these majestic horses, although it is a home for the retired I am sure there were plenty there that were trammers but not being able to tram.

When I return to the Isle of Man again I hope to see these horses tramming!

Well worth a visit to support these deserving animals.
Sep 2020
We are regular visitors with one or more of our grandchildren and always enjoy seeing and feeding the horses and donkeys.

The shop provides containers of food for the animals while the cafe looks after the food and drink needs for us.

There are some sheds with books and bric a brac for sale while others contain rocking horses for use by children.

We have spent a lot of time here over the summer and we love it. The cafe is really nice with good food and very tasty cakes. The children love the horses and we love to support the charity

It is so good to see that the people of this little island look after their retired animals so well. By visiting you also help support a worthy cause.

A must visit place !!
Sep 2019
We visit the horses and donkeys every year when we visit the IOM. Set in beautiful countryside it is great to see these animals being so well cared for. The little café serves lovely cakes, so after feeding the horses you can treat yourself to something nice too !

Great

Had a lovely couple of hours chilling with the horses and donkeys.

A lovely place to visit for all ages and free to enter. In view of this I suggest people donate or at least use the cafe or buy a gift to help support this wonderful place.

Fantastic Place to Visit, Highlight of our Holiday
Aug 2019
We visited as a group of four, between the age of 22 and 76 years old, both male and female. First I would highlight that this place is free to visit, but do not let that put you off or make you think its poor quality, as we visited several very expensive places during our visit to Manx and this was the highlight of our stay.

Very clean, well set out and the horses are great. So many different characters, all wanting your attention.

We also used the shop and cafe, which were both well priced and great quality.

Feeding the horses, was so enjoyable. Even my 76 year old Mum, joined in.

A Must When You Visit The Isle of Man!
Aug 2019
We never fail to call in to the rest home when we are on the island. What a wonderful place for everyone. Families especially but don't be afraid to visit if you're a couple or or on your own. You can feed the horses and donkeys using the prepared buckets provided, small cost but well worth the money to be able to feed them. It's free to go there and you can get a bus easily enough from Douglas. Lovely cafe with homemade cakes and toasted sandwiches etc. All ran by volunteers and donations via the public so bring your change along to support this amazing place!
