We really enjoyed our visit here. The horses were friendly and clearly well cared for (Stan in particular loved saying hello to visitors!). There's also a gift shop with lots of goodies to buy. Would recommend to animal lovers!

If you love animals then go to Hay Farm and meet their stunning heavy horses. You don't get to see these horses so much anymore and it is a real shame. Hay Farm is simply put a wonderful place to visit.
