Great day out. You get to feed the big horses and go on a short but enjoyable carrage ride. Great cafe.

Pony riding is for children age 4 and over, this is to comply with health and safety regulations however younger ones won't miss out!.. A miniature pony and carriage ride is welcome to all smaller children. I hope this helps!
