Glenda Spooner Farm remains closed at present

Updated 26th July: Due to the combination of restrictions continuing and the potential impact of self-isolation requirements on our small Visitor Centre team, we have sadly had to take the decision to postpone reopening our Rescue and Rehoming Centres to visitors until the middle of August. We were very much looking forward to having supporters back at the farm again so this is really disappointing but the safety of our visitors and staff is paramount. We will be delighted to welcome you when restrictions do ease, so we hope you’re not too disappointed and will book a visit to Glenda Spooner Farm at a later date. We will announce it as soon as we’re able to open our new booking system so do keep an eye out for news.

A fabulous venue, well-kept with lovely, friendly staff. Super cafe on site. Highly recommend a visit.


Lovely open peaceful space to walk and obviously see the horses and ponies. Dogs allowed on leads, little play park and reasonably priced cafe.


Great place to visit if you have kids (or anyone) who love horses. Wonderful views across Somerset on a nice day, or shorter walks and the stable enclosure if the weather isn’t so good. Well worth a visit!!
