Attraction details
Owner description: Redwings Oxhill is home to almost 90 rescued horses, ponies and donkeys, including the most friendly group of cobs known as "The Breakfast Club" because they’re all named after breakfast items! Visitors can enjoy regular ‘Walk and Talk’ tours where you can meet residents large and small – from impressive Shire Major (and his equally giant field mates) to mischievous miniature Shetland Wensley. Tasty refreshment are on offer in the Nosebag Cafe, while an on-site gift shop has a range of souvenirs, proceeds of which go to support the hundreds of equines in the charity's care. While visiting Redwings Oxhill, you might like to support the work of the charity by adopting one of its friendly residents, either for yourself or as a thoughtful gift for a friend or loved one. A year's adoption costs just £15! Redwings Oxhill is open every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, 10am to 4pm. Entry is FREE and dogs on leads are welcome too!

This is a sanctuary for horses that are in retirement or have been abandoned or abused. There is plenty of room to roam around. There are horses, donkey and shetland ponies to see, and stroke those that come close enough to the fences to be able to reach. They are well looked after and have plenty of room to live out the rest of their lives. There is a lovely little cafe and a small shop too. It was a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
