Owner description: Redwings Caldecott is the Redwings Horse Sanctuary's largest visitor centre and is currently home to almost 120 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules. On site, the Redwings team offer regular walking tours and donkey talks, while the Education Centre offers visitors a fun way to find out a little more about all things horsey! The cafe is open throughout the day serving tasty refreshments and the gift shop offers a variety of souvenirs and gifts, the proceeds of which go to support the hundreds of equines in the charity's care. There is also an outdoor children's play area for younger visitors to enjoy. While visiting Redwings Caldecott, be sure to find out more about how you can support the work of the charity by sponsoring one of the charity's charming residents. A year's membership to the Redwings Adoption Club costs just £12.50 and makes a perfect gift for a friend or loved one. Caldecott boasts quite a variety of Adoption Stars, including adorable donkey Esther, brave Welsh pony Cauli, beautiful mare Victoria and, of course, Muffin the mule! Open every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10am to 4pm, all year round. FREE entry and parking. Dogs on leads are welcome at all of Redwings' visitor centres. Directions: Redwings Caldecott is situated 4 miles from Great Yarmouth on the A143 between Great Yarmouth and Beccles, opposite Fritton Lake, NR31 9EY.

What a fun day out for all the family ! AND it doesn't cost anything to get in which is a bonus ! A nice little cafe, not cheap but all proceeds presumably go towards looking after the horses for life .

We visited this attraction on a reccomendation from a fellow holiday maker and was pleasently surprised.
All the areas were very clean and staff very helpful,
there was loads of educational material around with info into the horses and donkeys.

Free to enter, with lots of open space and walks, children play areas and small coffee shop, which is more than adequate. If you want a cheap day out with the kids, you couldn't ask for more, but you do need to like horses (and donkeys!). A small donation helps places like this keep going, so long may they continue!
