We loved visiting the farm, the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. All the horses and other animals are all well cared for. There is plenty to see and do. Will definitely be visiting again. Geraldine & Nigel

The heavy horse centre is a fantastic family attraction and great value for money . Once you have paid entry fee everything is free . We was greeted by the owner who told us the history of the horses . My son helped feed the animals on the farm yard tour . We had a lovely young lady called Skye who was very knowledgeable about the animals. We also met Skye on the pony grooming , pets corner and fun fair she was very good with my son and polite a credit to the team . My son loved the tractor ride by Dave who was also very polite and took time to talk to us . The horse and cart ride was great . There was also a show with the horses and you could tell the owner was very passionate about his horses . We will be recommending the heavy horse centre to all our friends and will be returning soon .

This is one of my favourite places of all time. The horses and farm animals are beautifully cared for. The staff are so passionate and informative and funny. And they're doing great work keeping these beautiful heavy horse breeds going. So much to do with activities throughout the day, for both adults and kids. Everything is included in the price, which is very reasonable. Fun tractor rides, old fashioned fairground rides for the kids, feeding the animals, and a great playground too. Spend all day there, you'll need the time to see everything. I can't recommend this place highly enough.
