Teashop and free access to collection of old horses and donkeys who are lovingly cared for. Watch out for the three legged cat! Friendly animals that enjoy being fed.

Always a warm smile and welcome. They remembered us from our last visit. We "adopted" Biggles. Always great to see the fabulous care of the animals that have served others well. Love this place.
