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.

    Went here on 29th April 2024 had an amazing day with my family. The staff were amazing and brought Victoria who I sponsor to gate so I could fuss her. All horses and donkeys are so lovely and cared for. Would definitely recommend for a day out. The food was amazing as well , and I loved the gift shop lovely reminders of a lovely day. Thank you.

    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 :)

    Great place lovely day out great cafe and gift shop. Everyone very friendly and helpful. Took my elderly mum to see her adopted donkey..she loved it but there is lots of walking though so if anyone struggles with mobility take a wheelchair. They do have one you can borrow for free, but if busy, may be taken. Cafe is a fair walk from reception too..but worth visiting.

    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.
