About Hillside Shire Horse Sanctuary

Hillside Shire Horse Sanctuary offers visitors the chance to meet our Heavy Horses, Ponies and Donkeys. Also Sheep, Pigs, Rabbits, Ducks, Hens, Goats and many more rescued animals in their home in the beautiful North Norfolk countryside.

There are five breeds of heavy horse on displayed at the centre: Shire, Suffolk Punch, Clydesdale, Percheron and Ardenne.

Take a nostalgic trip into the past to see the farming ways of yesteryear with our extensive countryside collection. Special blacksmith’s days are also featured on some days. The Sanctuary has a large collection of horse-drawn agricultural machinery and carts, which are displayed in three museum buildings. Light vehicles including a horse drawn omnibus and four gypsy caravans are on show.

An indoor arena is available, to ensure vistors will not miss a thing regardless of the weather.

There is an ‘Animal Friendly’ cafe which serves hot lunches, teas and snacks, a souvenir gift shop, a children’s playground and activity area.

A farmland experience of Shire delight . . .

Dogs welcome on leads.
