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 were so impressed with the whole set up of the park. The ability to be close to the horses made it a real hands on experience. Richard and his team are friendly and knowledgeable. Smokey Joe’s... more »

What an Interesting find this place is. Loads of stuff for all ages. Beautiful heavy horses, ponies, donkeys, goats, alpacas, a pot bellied pig, turkeys etc. Indoor & outdoor play areas for the kids. Horse & cart rides. Tractor rides. The cafe, although quite small has a good menu & is reasonably priced. The owner really knows his onions when it comes to the heavy horses & gives a really interesting & informative presentation although it's kind of scripted & is exactly the same word for word presentation early afternoon. Even so a great day out with plenty to do & see for the whole family. Recommended.
Something for everyone. And once you have paid the very reasonable entry fee, everything is free. The grandsons (13 and 10) loved the go karts best, with the tractor drive second. Lunch under the trees was good too. The adults had 2 sharing platters. Excellent.
