Overview

Shores Hey Farm is a hidden delight set in acres of green space overlooking the Thursden Valley. Although primarily the home of HAPPA (Horses and Ponies Protection Association), the site has been recently upgraded and now provides everything that you would expect from a first class destination. Burnley's best kept secret......until now Shores Hey offers first class facilities in a relaxing rural environment within easy reach of Burnley town centre and the M65. Whether it's an Equine Event or a Corporate Conference, HAPPA is the natural place to do business. With ample parking and on site catering, Shores Hey Farm is the perfect venue for your next event.
