Suffolk Punch Trust

The decision by HM Prison Service to sell the farm at Hollesley has provided the Trust with a "once in a lifetime opportunity" to create an Education and Heritage Centre on the site which has been the home of the Suffolk Punch Hollesley Bay Colony Stud for over 100 years.

Securing the long term future of the Colony Stud is also an important Trust objective. By combining the horses with the unique living landscape of the Suffolk coast an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) the Trust can provide educational and heritage experiences.

School children, especially those in inner city areas, socially disadvantaged or excluded groups, benefit greatly from visiting the Trust facilities at Hollesley.

“Visited the farm in August 2014 and it was a wonderful experience. I advise anyone that can should go. The ride on the cart was fun around the pastures. We adopted 3 of these gentle giants. It was a truly nice day. We had 2 children with us and they loved it also. Oh the food in the cafe was delicious. ”
