Set up to help bridge the gap between disabled and able bodied people, Ponderosa is an inclusive rural therapeutic centre that specialises in offering fun and accessible activities for the whole family.

The star attraction of the centre is the farm, with its wide selection of animals from the Tropical Jungles of Brazil to the Sandy Plains of Australia, as well as the usual farm favourites such as guinea pigs, rabbits, meerkats, racoon dogs, otters and pygmy goats – some of which can be fed by visitors.

Outdoor fun also includes a nature trail, zip wire and a purpose built beach area with its very own pirate ship, and indoor play can continue in the Bonanza Play Barn, which is suitable for children up to 8 years old.

Many of the enclosures were missing the animals and it didn't seem well maintained.
