Home of the internationally renowned Cotebrook Shire Horse Stud we have been breeding prize winning Shires here for over 40 years and they form the centrepiece of the Centre.

The Shire Horse is the largest breed of horse in the world and we invite you to meet our Stallions, Mares & Foals and learn about this fabulous Old English Breed from our friendly and informative staff who will be pleased to share their knowledge. We have up to 30 horses at any time for you to meet.
