What you'll do

A magical experience with some truly amazing sheep. I have a love for these animals as i feel they are very misunderstood. GIven the chance they are very affectionate and loving, very similar to a dog.
We are home to 140 plus sheep, many shy and timid that have been in the farming industry, but a lot of our Forever flocks will run to you like an excited puppy.
You will meet our Blacknose Valais, our rare breeds and our spoilt rotten forever lambs.
We will finish with Vegan Hot Chocolate and homemade Rocky road
We also have a small hut on site with homemade products using our sheared sheeps wool...
Take away memories to last a lifetime

Our food is all plant based, if you have any allergies please let us know in advance. We use soya milk in our drinks but can offer other non dairy and can do gluten free but please message us a few days before arrival or when you book.

For many years i was a fashion designer and loved to create, but there was something missing in my life. So i left the world i knew behind and stepped into the void to do something meaningful. We passed on our business and moved to the countryside to rescue animals and that's where it all began when we saved an old cow "mamamoo" and her baby calf from going to market. I made such a strong connection with her that overnight i turned to a plant based diet and found a true love and a strong passion to build a sanctuary for the needy or worthless animals.
That was over 10 years ago and i have had so many experiences and 100s of stories to tell. I have helped so many people make a connection with our animals and it has enriched their lives and inspired others to look for a focus in life.

Amazing sheep hugging experience! We took the bus and then walked there- so for everyone who doesn't have a car- also possible and worth it! Sharon and her team are lovely, I especially enjoyed the stories about the animals and how they ended up with her. It was so much fun and we got great pictures also- there is a selfie sheep who honoured his name very well :)

Be warned, these sheep will melt even the hardest of hearts! Who knew they were so personable and affectionate! Sharon and Warren are clearly committed to animal welfare and were fascinating hosts. The only downside… three daughters and a wife who now want some pet sheep! (Oh yeah, forgot, the hot chocolate and rocky road was also out of this world!)

This was the most incredible experience! I booked the trip as a surprise for my friend’s 30th birthday and she was blown away by how wonderful it was. We and our partners loved every minute! Sharon was full of so much knowledge, passion and love, and we could have stayed and listened to her stories for hours. We loved how she knew each individual sheep and talked about their personalities so happily. The experience felt very personal and we got to meet so many beautiful animals. Seeing them running over to us was so heartwarming. We couldn’t stop talking about the tour for the rest of our weekend together and will never forget it. We can’t wait to come back and visit and hope to do some volunteering at the sanctuary one day! The hit chocolate and cake was delicious!! An incredible place and an amazing lady ♡

Wonderful time!! Well worth the money for the experience and meeting all the animals. Sharon has a story for almost each and every animal and they are lovely to hear. The sanctuary appears to do wonderful work and we are very glad to have found it and have already recommended to friends and family :)

We had a lovely time meeting many of Sharon's rescued sheep, learning their stories and names and the amazing work that they do at the sanctuary. The sheep really were friendly and cuddly! Feeding them was hilarious and the vegan hot choc and rocky road were incredible. Will definitely be recommending and coming back to stay in a shepherd's hut next time!

What an amazing day! We loved being close up with all the different breeds of sheep, with time to stroke and feed them.
