The only Shire Horse stud farm in the UK open to the public, with up to 30 shires to see and a wildlife nature trail to explore.

Home of the internationally renowned Cotebrook Shire Horse Stud, the Cotebrook Centre has been breeding prize winning Shires for over 45 years, who form the centrepiece of the Centre.

The perfect day out and only 11 miles from Rookery Hall, there is plenty to see and do during your visit. Get up close and meet the horses, or take a walk on the wild side and explore their wildlife watch nature trail. Created in conjunction with the Cheshire Wildlife Trust, the trail links the native species exhibits at the visitor attraction with the wildlife that can be found both on the farm and in the wider surrounding countryside.

Refresh and relax in the Lakeside Café, which serves a selection of hot and chilled drinks, homemade soup, filled rolls and paninis, cakes and bakes, and not to forget their delicious cream teas! The menu is available to dine in or takeaway.
