I am so glad you enjoyed your day and saw the worth of the charity. It would be sad day should this breed, which has shaped the Suffolk or dare I say East Anglian landscape disappear. Thank you for visiting Best Wishes Julia

Really good day out, very interesting, the horses are magnificent and there are lots of things to see and do. Staff/volunteers were very informative and extremely helpful. Well worth the entrance fee. Dog friendly too.

No hassle here, just wander around where you like. Horses are great also the other animals. Tractor rides, and a nice little cafe with outside seating.
