Quality assured visitor attraction

Accredited by the English Tourism Council, our
Open Days are recognised under their Quality Assured Visitor Attraction Scheme.


Their inspector reported:  "The most outstanding features were the peaceful ambience, the clean conditions of the animals and the neat presentation of the enclosures and paddocks."

We serve 'animal friendly' refreshments, have a spacious gift shop to browse and a shop with a variety of bric-a-brac. Dogs are welcome too (on a lead please).

To find us at Frettenham from Norwich outer ring road take the B1150 towards North Walsham.  After 4 miles you will see The White Horse Public House on the right. Take the next turning left into Hall Lane and Hillside is the first turning on the left.
