HAPPA- Shores Hey FarmHAPPA- Shores Hey Farm

Shores Hey Farm is a hidden delight set in acres of green space overlooking the Thursden Valley of Burnley, Lancashire. Although primarily the home of the charity HAPPA (Horses and Ponies Protection Association) the site has been recently upgraded and now provides everything that you would expect from a first class family destination. The site offers free entry and free visitor parking and has wheelchair access to most of the buildings. The Visitor’s Centre hosts The Scullery café which provides a mouth-watering, tempting, locally sourced, Lancashire Themed menu, it is also home to the Shores Hey Farm gift shop offering a wonderful collection of gifts for the most discerning of shoppers and the farm shop with jams, chutneys and fresh eggs, bread and vegetables. There is also the Tack Shack full of second-hand and new equipment and items for your own horse. Children can enjoy visiting the many horses and ponies on site, take part in a wide range of fun and educational activities, let off steam in our outdoor play area and join the Tommy Trotter Club to collect stickers and prizes when they visit.

Author's Review

 I fail think to think that there is anyone in this world that doesn't like horses and so, Shores Hey farm really is an attraction for everyone, young or old! I visited in the summer of 2016 and I hadn't been here long when I made my decision that this attraction had to be in my Lancashire Chapter of this latest edition of the Top 100 Attractions in North West England book. The entire team at Happa are completely dedicated to equine care and the equines that are in residence here no matter their background, are well and truly cared for to the highest of standards. That philosophy doesn't only show through with their horses, the staff here really do care about all the thousands of visitors that come through their doors on a daily basis. Finally, I want to mention their new visitor centre. This award winning restaurant has a great chef and whether your just needing a coffee and cake, or something more substantial, they have a menu to suit everyone. A huge Top 100 Attractions thumbs up!
