Open for Taster Tours from the 8th of December!

Following the government announcement on Thursday 26th November, we are delighted to open to visitors again, but have made some changes to the format of our tours in order continue keeping our staff and the public safe. 

We have decided to cancel the Winter Visit Programme we were running through Airbnb Experiences and replace this with Taster Tours, available to book directly through us.

These are shorter in length, but don’t worry – we’ve included all the best bits of our usual tours so you don’t miss out on any of the sanctuary fun!

What to expect:

Tours will last for approximately 1.5 hours, and to help keep everyone safe they will be restricted to our outdoor areas only.

You will be guided by our Education & Outreach Manager Kath or our Sanctuary Manager Dave, who will take you on a tour of our yard and barn areas, where there will be lots of opportunities to pet, feed, and interact with the animals. There will also be opportunity to grab a hot drink to warm you up along the way, but unfortunately our toilet facilities will not be available for use.
