‪A lovely small charming farm run by a lovely family. We felt very welcome and were allowed a lot of time to hold a variety of adorable animals! My four year old absolutely loved it.‬

‪Love it! It’s an original place, the owners love the the animals, you can cuddle the baby animals, walk round, feed the animals, there’s swings and some bits for children to play on, benches to sit at. Go and support them! They have a fundraiser on Saturday 9th April 2022 11am-5pm‬

‪This place looks like it would have been great about 20 years ago, it’s like stepping back in time. I’m surprised the council haven’t closed it down. I would not visit again for a number of reasons.

The animals (chicks, rabbits, chipmunks etc) are in cramped cages. The donkey is pacing in a pen that has worn ground, no fresh grass and nettles so high the children couldn’t see in to the pen. A couple of pigs, goats, a Shetland pony. Poor rabbits in an outhouse lived in tiny cages, better conditions can be found at Pets at Home. A sanctuary this certainly is NOT.

There’s a viewpoint over the grounds which should be condemned as it’s so slippery with no handrail and steep steps! Plus not much of a view as everywhere is so overgrown.

Onto the ‘ponds’ one of which was more like a mucky puddle with a few poor geese. The highlight has to be seeing a black swan, until you see how dirty the pond was, with old slices of bread sitting in the top of the stagnant water.

There are loads of empty pens, all grown over. Very sad. The playground was ok and the children thankfully enjoyed it.

With a cash injection and overhaul from an investor it could be great again. In the meantime though, it should be closed. Time to accept it peaked a longtime ago and for the dear owner to put her feet up.‬

‪Well if I could rate this 10 instead of five I would have. We visited this morning with our 3 year old Granddaughter. We were very warmly welcomed by Mabel who explained the workings of the farm. Mabel gave my granddaughter a cup of chicken feed so she could feed the chickens which she enjoyed very much. We then moved indoors where Mabel showed our Granddaughter the new Chicks that had been born overnight and one Duck that was born this morning. We were the only ones there so our granddaughter was able to hold the baby chicks less than a day old and the new baby Duck who she named quacky. It’s not fancy but very natural and magical.
take a picnic , there are picnic tables and toilet facilities. Mabel is a truly an Amazing women with many stories to tell , a real inspiration .
Wish we had more time to spend there
Will Definitely return
Thank you Mable for a wonderful experience‬

‪We were a group of 12, adults and children, and we were camping nearby and just needed something to provide a couple of hours of entertainment without breaking the bank and this was perfect. It is very basic with nowhere to buy food or drink but the children absolutely loved it and we brought a picnic. It was £5 entry and £1 for animal feed. When we got there we immediately held day old chicks which was wonderful. The lady in charge was friendly and helpful and remarkable for her age - she’s an inspiration! We then walked around the farm following the little lanes and seeing the pigs, birds, donkeys, rabbits and goats. The playground looks a little tired but has everything the children love, in particular a huge climbable Thomas the tank engine. We sat on the bench and let them play while we ate. There was nothing else we needed. We had a lovely time. Thank you.‬

‪We were not sure if it was open today as it was a Bank Holiday Monday and the weather was not so great, so I rang and left a message that morning. A woman called Mabel rang me back to say yes it was and she looked forward to seeing us. Our four year old daughter was so excited about seeing all the animals as was I!

Upon arrival, we were the only people there however we were greeted warmly by Mabel who we discovered was the owner and she explained the set up. This is an Animal Sanctuary. no frills, no gimmicks and no profit making......entrance fee donations (cash only) are purely for the upkeep of the sanctuary and the welfare of the animals.

We were given some animal feed and were shown the direction to go. First stop we saw chickens, roosters, some were loose, wandering around which thrilled my daughter. A white little duck waddled happily up to us and we gave it some feed. The goats were next, very eager to get in on the food action. They were in a lovely big enclosure with an area for them to climb. We saw Gineau pigs and rabbits, ducks, geese, donkeys, shetland ponies and an ostrich, all very much cared for. There is a kids play area and benches dotted around and when the weather is better would be great for kids to burn of energy and enjoy a picnic.

When we had had enough of the wind and rain and our animal feed had been depleted, we headed back to the main indoor entrance area where there was a small bird enclosed and chipmunks. We had to wait for a few moments as Mabel was in another enclosure feeding some animals ( yes she hands on!) But the highlight was being able to handle one day old chicks. My daughter was in her element and we spent at least half an hour petting them and listening to Mabel’s story. She is an amazing women, recently turned 90 years young!..... and her animal Sanctuary is her dream come true, she always wanted to care for animals and give children the opportunity to see and pet them.

Never having been here before and having read some of the reviews pre visit I had my reservations but having met Mabel and seen how well the animals are cared for, you have to admire her strength of character and determination and with the help of her son have kept it going through the recent tough times. It is real, it is not sugar coated for visitors, it’s a bit shabby around the edges but it is as it is and we loved it and will definitely be going again and will keep on going.

Please go and support this amazing woman and her family business which are doing a great job of caring for these animals and giving us the privilege of meeting them.

‪Well, those of you who made comments on here regarding the Sanctuary I hope you are pleased with yourselves, and those who called the Council and complained, because now thanks to you and the Council none of us can go back and enjoy the animals because they've closed it down.

So you got stung by a nettle, no one was going to die, they didn't serve food they weren't going to poison anyone, no one was in any danger from the animals, you pay a small entry fee and yet expect so much, they were just a small family unit giving homes to animals no longer wanted as well educating and helping young children get up close and personal to animals, a huge loss to the area.
As for the animals I doubt all will be rehomed due to their ages so will have to go to slaughter. But you didnt think about that when you complained, just the me me me attitude.‬

‪We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, it's a lovely peaceful place and the cuddle corner is fabulous! We really enjoyed stroking the animals and the owners were very friendly and took the time to talk to us and let us meet the animals - very relaxed and no time limits! The animals are all very lively, happy, and well loved - a big difference to a lot of the more commercial farms we've visited. We highly recommend a visit.‬

‪We had a lovely afternoon stroking rabbits and guinea pigs in the sunshine! The little park is fun for the children to play on and the cheeky goats made us all smile. Thank you for a lovely day.‬

‪I have been left feeling quite upset today after an unpleasant conversation with presumably the owners. I called in at 16.35 simply to ask whether I could have a quick look at the site to check out its viability for visits with a dementia group. The people I spoke to immediately said I couldn’t visit as it was after 4.30. I explained that there was a misunderstanding...I didn't want to visit, but just to have a very quick look at the site. I suggested twice that 5 minutes would be enough but this was ignored. The site closes at 5.00pm so it is hard to see how this was a problem. The man’s tone of voice was very rude, the woman less so - she gave me a leaflet for a nearby place which might suit the group however its some kind of fantasy/fairytale venue designed for children and totally inappropriate for people with dementia. However she did launch into a lecture about the man being up at 6.30 in the morning feeding the birds all on his own, at which point I chose to leave rather than continue being told off. The Water Foul Sanctuary would have been perfect but it is their loss in terms of income as we would have been regular visitors at times when business is bound to be poor - during weekdays and in the winter.‬
