Set in 50 acres in the heart of the beautiful Cheshire countryside, Cotebrook Shire Horse Centre and Countryside Park, run by Alistair and Janet King, offers everything for the perfect day out. Home of the internationally renowned Cotebrook Shire Horse Stud, the centre have been breeding prize winning Shires for over 35 years.

The Shire Horse is the largest breed of horse in the world and the visitor may learn much about this fabulous Old English Breed from our friendly and informative staff at the centre.

In addition to Shire Horses the centre is home to a selection of British animals and birdlife both wild & domesticated including many rare breeds. Shetland Ponies, Large Black Pigs and piglets, Aberdeen Angus Cattle, Birds of prey, Red Deer, Red Foxes and Red Squirrels.

A stroll around the nature trail takes about an hour where you can visit the horses further afield and see if you can spot the hidden wildlife.
