We've been busy hard working away trying to organise our new 2014 opening times and dates. Please visit our opening times page for all of our new 2014 dates. We're really excited for our events this year and by popular demand we'll be hosting two Medieval Banquet Evenings! Our Masked Ball will be returning too! You can also find all the information on visiting the centre on our visiting us page.
For over 20 years the Northcote Heavy Horse Centre has been caring for horses of all sizes from all different backgrounds. Our Sanctuary is funded solely by donations, but we need your help to keep carrying on being able to care for them. Please see our help page for ways you can help the horses and animals. Find out more ways to help here or meet the Northcote Horses!
The Northcote Heavy Horse Centre is an equine rescue centre and a visitor’s attraction offering truly hands on experiences unlike anywhere else. We have been operating for over 20 years helping horses of all sizes from various backgrounds. The Centre runs entirely on donations from the general public and cannot operate without your help. Browse our website to find out more information about us. Help - Donate - Blog
The Northcote Heavy Horse Centre is home to horses of all sizes, from heavy horses, shire horses, percherons, Belgian draft horses, shetland ponies and even a Suffolk Punch! You can meet all the horses (big and small) on our horses page. Each horse has lots of pictures and some brief information on their breed, history and life. Visit the horses page now!
We're pleased to announce our very popular Medieval Banquet Evening will be returning for it's third year! Due to very popular demand last year (selling out all tickets) we're going to be hosting two events. (Saturday Evening 31st May / Saturday Evening 26th July)
The evening will feature a full hog roast dinner and entertainment with birds of prey, medieval skill at arms, jesters and more! We'll also have a licensed bar. You don't have to dress up but it would be fun if you did!
Tickets are on sale now, please see our events page for more details.
Do you shop online on sites like Amazon, eBay etc? Well, the folks at Easyfundraising offer a completely free service where you create an account with them, then select Northcote Heavy Horse Centre as your charity and each time you visit the shopping site (like Amazon) you go to Easyfundraising first and click 'Go Shopping' and just shop like you normally do. Each site will then give a donation (based on a percentage) and then we will get 100% of that donation! Find out more on their site!

As winter is here we are starting our appeal for urgent financial help. We really struggle during the winter months as we’re not open and funds are rapidly depleted. The cost of hay and other winter foods are a real concern – this year more than ever. To help keep the Centre going and the horses in our care here, we ask for a donation…it doesn't matter what size…anything really does help. An even better way to help is by donating monthly; even £5 a month would be wonderful. Thank you. Find out more
We're now holding special 'Heavy Horse Experience Days'. You can get to come and spend some hands on time with the Northcote Heavy Horses, you'll also get a chance to learn many valuable skills including plaiting, grooming & bathing horses. See our new' Heavy Horse Experience Days' page for more information!
