A big place for the family. There is a play area, cafe and learning centre for everyone. The cafe is a bit pricey, but the money goes to the sanctuary to help the animals, so me and my wife didn't mind paying.

Such a worthwhile place to visit. Every horse has a history and proves how these lovely horses can recover when they are well looked after. Well done Redwings.
