The Dorset Heavy Horse Farm Park provides the last full-time Heavy Horse center left in the UK and the only rescue center for these historic horses, which have served as work and war horses in Britain since 1066. Keeping the Heavy Horses company are an assortment of farm animals such as donkeys, Shetland ponies, pigs, sheep, and many more. Learn about Heavy Horses with an informative tour or educational talk. Little ones can also take part in lots of hands-on learning activities. When you arrive, be sure to check the timetable of interaction with the farm animals, such as riding, feeding, and grooming. There are plenty of indoor activities to take part in and a cafe to shelter inside if the weather is wet.

  • We always come here when we are on holiday in this area. Such a wonderful place. Animals are very happy and well kept, staff very friendly and always have time for you. The children and adults in the family love it! My children especially love the bouncy castle and go carts. Lots to do for tots and older children.
  • Fell in love with this place. Great staff that encourage children to be hands on. Staff cannot be more helpful. Will definitely be back. Thank you for a brilliant day. So refreshing to find a place like this.
  • Absolutely fabulous! Really enjoyed our day here. So much to do and lovely to be able to feed the animals. Great place for young and old alike. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend a visit.
  • We attended with our Brownies and they had an amazing time. The staff are so helpful and obviously love all the animals which are all very well cared for. We all enjoyed it so much that the Brownies adopted one of the horses. Would definitely visit again
  • This is a great attraction, especially for kids who love horses. The staff seen extremely knowledgeable and the talks are very worthwhile. It is a low key day out, great when you don't fancy crowds and queues.
