Horse welfare charity The Mare and Foal Sanctuary rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes horses and ponies in need - and you can see our wonderful work first hand at our Visitor Centre near Totnes.

You'll experience a full working yard and the friendly faces of our many horses and ponies, as well as enjoying spectacular countryside views. We also have a gift shop full of souvenirs and more to remind you of your day, and a cafe serving delicious hot and cold drinks

And best of all... it's free entry! 

We hold lots of regular public events too - visit to see what's coming up. We find these events are great fundraisers for the charity, and they also help to promote awareness for horse welfare and causes close to our heart.

We and our ponies would love to see you soon. If your party is larger than 6, we recommend you phone in advance to make sure we have plenty of people available to show you around.
