Vegan Accommodation at Animal Sanctuary in England

At Hillside we have self-catering holiday homes available for country breaks in a beautiful rural area by the sea in North Norfolk. The properies are situated at Hillside Shire Horse Sanctuary at West Runton and are surrounded by the Sanctuary’s rescued animals. Just ten minutes’ walk away, you can spend a pleasant day on the safe sandy beach.

West Runton is a coastal village with restaurants, hotels, nine-hole golf course, shops, public house along with bus/train services. Sheringham Town, 2 miles away, is home of the famous Norfolk Steam Railway. Cromer is 3 miles away in the other direction and is famous for its ‘End of the Pier Show’. West Runton is also famous for the discovery in 1990 of the remains of the 6-700,000 year old West Runton Elephant.

Hillside is home to over 3000 animals and is one of the UK’s most successful campaigning organisations for the animals’ cause.  We have always known that one of the main reasons animals are left to suffer in factory farms is because people have little or no idea about the immense cruelty involved in their food production. Although most of our rescued animals have been saved from the farming industry, Hillside is home to nearly 2000 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules.
