“We passed quite a few pleasant hours at Bransby Horses. More than we were actually expecting to. It’s a lovely place with modern facilities run by a highly commendable charity. I would certainly recommend a visit.”

Instagram blogger @mamabenatural wrote about her visit in May 2022:

“The donkeys were our favourites as they were very interactive and it was particularly amusing when they all started ‘he-hawing’ at each other. We also enjoyed looking around the donated goods shop and the girls where super excited to find some My Little Pony figures. We finished our visit with a cup of tea and some delicious vegan chocolate cake in the tastefully decorated and clean café.”
