Giving animals the love they deserve

We are a small but dedicated animal welfare charity based near Skegness in Lincolnshire. We care for horses, birds of prey and other animals and offer them a forever home in our sanctuary. Since 1989 we have been promoting animal welfare in an educational setting, offering visitors the unique chance to meet the animals and have a very hands on experience. Many of our resident animals have been turned down by other charities so we step in and offer them a home for the rest of their life.
We give the horses the respect, dignity and love we think they deserve.

Our Work

For over 25 years the Northcote Heavy Horse Centre has been caring for horses of all sizes from all different backgrounds in a loving & forever home. Our Sanctuary is funded solely by donations & ran entirely by volunteers but we need your help to keep carrying on being able to care for these gentle giants.

Your Help

The Northcote Heavy Horse Centre is an animal welfare charity in Lincolnshire, visitors attraction & equestrian rescue sanctuary providing welfare and a forever home to horses & animals in need. Our visitors centre is a popular day out and tourist attraction based near Skegness in Lincolnshire. 


Our centre currently receives no funding nor do we employ any members of staff.
In order for us to continue offering a forever home to our animals we rely on public donations. 



Visit the Animals

Visitors get the chance to watch and sometimes help in our training of horses and animals. We believe a truly hands on experience creates longer lasting memories for guests and helps keep the horses and animals here fit and ready for work! 

Special Events

We're well known for hosting popular themed special events such as our grand Medieval Tournaments in the summer and our Medieval Banquet evenings! Featuring lots of action, fun and entertainment it's a great day out!
