The Isle of Man Home of Rest for Old Horses. – Is situated on Richmond Hill near Douglas and you are you are most welcome to visit Telephone: +44 [0] 1624 674594 E-mail: horseshome@iommail.net Open Sun to Fri 10:00 to 16:00 May to Sept. Location by car: Along the A5 Douglas to Airport road – By Bus: Richmond Hill is on routes 1 or 2. Free entry and free parking. Disabled access and facilities. The retirement home was started in 1950 for Douglas Trammers [ex Douglas Bay Horse Tramway Motive Power] and for homeless and friendless horses. It is set in 92 acres of countryside. Supported ENTIRELY by voluntary contributions. There is an interesting museum, well stocked gift shop and home baked cooking in the Cafe. There is also a function room for party rentals. A wonderful place to visit. The facilities are well maintained by their volunteer staff. The horses are not shy and really enjoy visitors. They will come right up to the fence in hopes of a Polo Mint or tub of feed which can be purchased from the gift shop. The location is striking with benches and excellent views of the surrounding countryside. Visitors will have no trouble getting a drink or snack from the cafe and can enjoy the history of the home in the Museum. As of course being a completely voluntary set up they do need your support and sponsorship of the horses. Personally I sponsor ex Trammer Una and when Trammer Mark retires in November 2017 I will be sponsoring him too. My main efforts however will commence in November 2018 when my namesake Keith retires. I am hoping to arrange a leaving party for him and last run with a special tramcar when I am next in the IoM. This will be September 2018 when I am there for the 125th. Anniversary of the Manx Electric Railway. Kind regards. Keith Till.
