Open Days

Winter - Welly & Waterproof Days

From Saturday 15th April, we are open every day from 11am-4pm

For the first time ever, Buttercups will be opening its gates to the public every day!  Thanks to our new facilties, you will be able to sit surrounded by goats whilst drinking a fresh bevearge, safely secured within the new tea room area.  This date also ties in with the launch of our Walking with Goats Experience, which we will be running every day accross the bank holiday weekend.  Please note that during the winter months, the Sanctuary will be closing at 3pm, as this is when the goats will want to go to bed.

Every Sunday of the month from November to April 10.00am-3.00pm

These are days for the visitors who are content to just observe the goats in their home surroundings and to see them relaxed, playing and grazing.  Members of staff and volunteers will be on hand to show you around the stables introduce you to some of the goats and inform you of the objectives of Buttercups.  You may see the sanctuary at work with volunteers cleaning, looking after goat’s welfare, grooming and perhaps giving the occasional bath. Beware of mud!

Entrance to all open days is by donation, food for goats available for purchase.
