Visitors and our donkey

Visitor’s give Bransby Horses the thumbs up

21st July 2022

Families looking for a day out which won’t break the bank are finding lots to do here at Bransby Horses.

As one of the UK’s largest equine welfare charities, our play park, café and miles of picturesque, pushchair friendly walkways are proving very popular.

Visitors are also enjoying learning more about the work we do to rescue and rehabilitate horses by seeing first-hand the daily care we provide to equines in need.

Recommendations have even led to a Trip Advisor Traveller’s Choice Award 2022 – which is the highest Trip Advisor accolade.

A recent visitor wrote on the popular website: “Lovely day out. Our one year old loved looking at all the donkeys and horses and the cafe was great. Can’t believe this place is free to visit!”

And another said: “Me and the wife were taken aback by how tidy and clean the entire site was, their four legged residents all look well kept and happy, and many of them were all too happy to come close to us for a quick scratch behind the ears and top of their shoulders bless them.

“The cafe was just, omg, it’s gorgeous, the food was fantastic, fresh and flavoursome and brought to us with outstanding customer service throughout. Absolutely everyone on site was so lovely and welcoming. It’s a 10/10 from us. An outstanding hidden gem and we highly recommend.”

If you haven’t visited us yet there are hundreds of horses, ponies, donkeys and mules on view and children can take part in a trail quiz for £3.50, which includes a small prize at the end.

During the month of August you can take part in the ‘Pixies and Gnomes and Their Wonderful Homes’, trail as a fun way to navigate our 600 acre site.

A trail sheet takes you to clues hidden along the walkways to help children match the gnomes and pixies to the right homes.

Jo Snell, Bransby Horses CEO, said: “There’s plenty for friends and families to see and do when they arrive, including our play park which now caters for children of all ages, with a dedicated toddler area, new slides, swings and climbing frames.”

No Need To Go Hungry

Bransby Horses has an eatery, serving breakfast, lunch and light refreshments to eat in or takeaway.

There’s always a delicious cake selection, which includes vegan options to cater for most diets and tastes.
