Redwings Caldecott, a Visit England Quality Assured Visitor Attraction, is a must-see for all donkey and mule lovers with a herd of over 30 of the adorable, long-eared creatures! Among the gorgeous, rescued residents, you can enjoy cuddles with cute little donkey Esther who was rescued from the horrific conditions at Spindle Farm in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, in 2008. Handsome Shire cross Fox and cheeky Shetland pony Sampson can’t wait to meet you either!

After a relaxing stroll, you can put your feet up with a warm cuppa and a slice of cake in Oliver’s Café. There’s also an on-site gift shop offering a wide range of souvenirs, with all proceeds supporting the hundreds of animals in Redwings’ care.

Having met the centre’s lovable residents, you might like to sponsor one of the charity’s adorable Adoption Stars. Available from just £2 a month, you can adopt for yourself or as a thoughtful gift for a friend or loved one.

Redwings Caldecott is open every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday all year round, 10am to 4pm (closed Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays). Paddocks close at 3.30pm.

Entry and parking are free, but donations of all sizes can really support the charity’s work if you would like to make one.

Dogs on leads are welcome.

There are around 10 disabled parking spaces in the newly resurfaced car park with a central concrete pathway leading to a fully accessible visitor reception. The wide grass tracks around the main paddocks and the gravel track around the stable yard can be negotiated in a wheelchair. A staff member will be happy to offer advice regarding this.

As per all listings on Dog Friendly Norfolk, we accept well behaved dogs.

    If you love horses it’s a must visit. Entry is free however, please do make a donation no matter how small. Big site so quite a walk to cover it all. Beautiful home for the horses, ponies and donkeys where they are clearly cared for. Lunch at Oliver’s Cafe was really tasty and reasonably priced plus nice little gift shop. Staff friendly and helpful.

    Pleasant day out walking around to see horses. Cafe very clean and friendly staff. Can sit inside or outside. Food good. Vegetarian roll delicious. Dog friendly.

    Although it was raining, it is a different place to walk around and view the horses (and possibly Donkeys but we didn't see any). The staff were so friendly and helpful even encouraging Ceaser to come out and see us, with ginger nut biscuits!!! Fantastic cafe, but we didn't stop for anything, we will next time. A little shop with souvenirs and a good car park. It's a great visit for a short visit or a couple of hours.

    Love bringing the children here and the coffee and cakes are delightful. Toilets sparkling clean, pathways buggy friendly, plenty to see and paves to sit down for a rest. My only suggestion would be for some shady areas to cool down in as it can be really warm on sunny days

    Enjoyable experience and great to meet little Esther. After a terrible start in life at the hands of inhuman people she is still kind and gentle. Lesson for us all.
