very interesting presentations and great fun things to do....few places left to see heavy horses and both enjoy their company and learn about them. Plenty of variety for 8 and 9 years old kids whose attention span is short!

Such a lovely place to visit, we took our 5 year old and 9 month baby for the day and nanny and grandad too, there's so much to do and see as well as educational talks, my daughter enjoyed everything especially the pony rides and driving a real full sized tractor (nanny liked that bit too). The people are so friendly and helpful and the horses loved the treats we gave them which you can buy from the shop. The cafe is nice with plenty of choice and a big play area for the kids right next to it. Its not exactly Alton towers if that's what you are looking for but I would highly recommend it for a lovely day out big or small :-)

This was a great day out. We are grandparents with boy 7 and girl 11, they both enjoyed the day, much more for them to do than some other places.
Interesting, enjoyable, everyone is hard working and a bit of an adcenture for the kids with something for them to find and try in every corner.
It was also very interesting for us and with so much for the kids to do, less entertainment for us to worry about.
We sponsored Blossom and will make sure we visit again in the future. Phil & Lori.

This is good old fashioned family fun ,We had a great time and our three grand children loved every bit of it. Its really good value and you are made really welcome by some interesting people not only are they well informed and entertaining they are doing a great job 24/7 looking after these gentle giants. It is not alton towers just simply old fashioned fun like a hay barn that you can do what you like in, you have to drag the kids out to move on . give these people your support and have a good day out.
