World Horse Welfare Penny Farm

Penny Farm is a horse rescue & rehabilitation centre operated by the charity World Horse Welfare. We welcome visitors 3 days a week to meet the ponies & find out more about the work of the charity. 

The main stable area is indoors and the site has full disabled access. Visitors are also welcome to walk around our fields & paddocks. During the summer months we also have an activity trail around the farm.

We welcome group visits by appointment outside our normal opening hours.

The visitors centre is open Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday 11am – 4pm, and on bank holidays. Admission is free and we offer free parking – as a charity we welcome donations from our visitors.

The visitors centre also has a small gift shop and a coffee shop selling snacks and a wide range of homemade cakes. 

We also have a picnic area in the summer months.

The centre runs regular special events including family fun days when children get the opportunity to groom the ponies. Event details will be listed below when availalble.

We also offer birthday parties suitable for children age 6yrs+

If you would like more information about any of the events at Penny Farm, or are interested in holding an event there, please call the Visitor Officer or click here to contact us.
