Our Facilities

Located at the 80 acre estate - The Holmes, St.Boswells, near Melrose, in The Scottish Borders - the animals fortunate in having been re-homed here, are accommodated in small groups in well-fenced and watered paddocks of permanent pasture, each with a field shelter.

 

There is a handsome Edwardian stone built stable block consisting of loose boxes, stalls, tack room and washing facilities round a cobbled yard. The estate has an ambience of its own - the beautiful views over the River Tweed and the tree-lined driveways are breathtaking whatever the season of the year.

 

Along with the donkeys there are ponies, llamas, goats, pigs, sheep, ducks and many breeds of poultry and a mule called Muffin.

 

There are toilets on site for your convenience and don't forget to visit the shop before you go for a souvenir gift!
