Welcome to Tilley Farm

Get Started

Welcome to TILLEY FARM

Tilley Farm is a ninety acre property on the outskirts of Bath. It is a sanctuary for our rescued horses, ponies and donkeys and home to Animal Centred Education. The farm was purchased in 2001 and has evolved over the years to become a haven for wildlife and a peaceful learning environment for animals, and humans.

We run Animal Centred Education (ACE) courses and workshops for members of the public and those already working in the fields of animal welfare, wellbeing, behaviour and training.

  Tilley Farm is only open to visitors by prior arrangement.
