Animals at Manor Farm
Manor Farm is a sanctuary to a herd of 8 donkeys, numerous goats, ponies and over 40 owls. Almost all of our animals have been rescued but all of them now enjoy a life where they are cared for and loved. We also have; pigs, chickens, ducks and geese, rabbits & guinea pigs, reptiles, parrots and even a peacock and a peahen! - and not forgetting Tilly the tortoise, and Charlie & Mac the llamas, of course.
We are not a working farm. When any animal comes to us we make sure they are looked after for life. We have a no-breeding policy, which means that we do not have lambs or piglets in season, but you may be able to see chicks and ducklings if you are lucky. Sadie, one of our sweetest donkeys, was born at Manor Farm because her mum, Molly, was pregnant with her when she arrived. The 2 of them are firm favourites on the Farm!
Our animals are a constant delight to our visitors - and to us, too, of course! Many of them will happily come over for a fuss when called by name, and enjoy the interaction with people.
Hoots Hollows is home to one of the largest collections of owls in the UK, and is housed in a splendid set of aviaries, with a purpose-built Arena where you can get close to some of the owls, learn more about them, and maybe even get to hold one! We ask for a donation of just £1 to hold an owl.
All of our animals are available for adoption, and all of the proceeds go towards their care and upkeep. Some are more suitable for adoption than others, of course, so please see the relevant section if you would like to adopt one. It is a vital support for our work here and is hugely appreciated by all of us - animals as well as humans.
