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.

    Loved our visit to see the horses and donkeys! The place was so peaceful and made you feel so relaxed as you walked around. They had lots of signs to tell you all about each horse/facts about the sanctuary itself which was handy and interesting. The staff were all so friendly and polite- made you feel very welcome! Its also dog friendly (on leads of course) and my 2 collies loved walking around in the fresh air. It was all disabled friendly and we managed no problem getting a small mobility scooter around. Easy to find your way around and you can walk as far or as little as you fancy- there's horses near and far to see! Overall just a fabulous day out- highly recommend :)

    I really enjoyed my visit here, loved seeing the animals there. Staff were really friendly, everywhere looked clean and tidy. I even adopted a horse and that was very cheap for a year, and made me feel good to be helping out.

    Lovely place to visit. Able to take dogs along, cafe is dog friendly. Horses etc look very well looked after. Only reason I’ve knocked a star off is because we ordered two panini and two sausage rolls for lunch at the cafe and it took a good 40 minutes to arrive. The cafe didn’t seem busy so unsure why the hold up. Spoilt the day as we had a lot planned and waiting for lunch for so long we hadn’t factored in.

    The horses and donkeys are so well kept. It's really well organised and easy to navigate. You can walk around as much or as little as you want.

    I go here regularly with my daughter. It's a lovely place to have a walk around, look at at pet the horses. The horses and Donkeys are clearly well looked after. Entry is free, however, you can make donations in the reception area via card. Oliver's cafe is great, yummy food & good prices.
