In February 2019 we were awarded a special accolade from Visit England for our 'outstanding welcome' and in April 2019 we were voted the Muddy Stilettos Best Family Attraction in Norfolk so we do hope you will feel very much at home with us!

Gulliver's Café and gift shop
All proceeds go towards funding the work of the Sanctuary. That means every time you buy something to eat, you are helping to keep our horses and donkeys fed too!
Most paddocks are accessible, although some may be difficult to navigate in adverse weather conditions. The wildlife walk is also primarily a grass track and so can be difficult to navigate. There is a fully accessible, purpose built stable facility where ponies can be brought in and groomed, there is also a fully accessible WC as well as disabled parking. View our access statement.
