Overview
More
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 place is free to enter. Please remember it is only funded by Visitors and donations so Please, either donate or adopt or even just buy a cake in the cafe. Even spare just a pound. What these Guys do for these Animals is incredible.
