Today was my third visit to this wonderful charity. Every time we have been, we have been welcomed by an older lady at the gates. We have always donated at least £10 at the entry and spend more money when we are in the sanctuary....More

A whole field of goats to stroke! Lovely setting. Nice tea shop selling reasonably priced drinks and cakes. Great to be able to feed the goats carrots or crackers for £1. Nice, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Will definitely be returning.

The people at Buttercups Sanctuary should be on an awards list somewhere. Taking in and caring for so many rescue goats is a great cause. The goats have come from some terrible backgrounds, but in Buttercups have found somewhere to recover. Nice big field, loads...More
