Redwings Horse Sanctuary - Mountains Visitor Centre
Set in 220 acres of beautiful woodlands and paddocks, Redwings Mountains provides a place of sanctuary to 90 rescued horses, ponies, donkeys and mules.
The visitor centre is part of the UK’s largest horse sanctuary, Redwings Horse Sanctuary, having merged with the charity in January 2015.
Here animal lovers can get up close and cuddly with its adorable residents and hear their stories – and, best of all, it’s completely FREE!
You can enjoy meeting super-cute donkey Minnie and her son Mouse and handsome cob Gibson - not forgetting two sheep called Toffee and Treacle, as well as bountiful wildlife including red squirrels and mountain birds.
After a relaxing stroll, you can put your feet up with a warm cuppa and a tasty snack in the Nosebag Café, while an on-site gift shop offers a wide range of souvenirs, with all proceeds supporting the hundreds of animals in Redwings’ care.
You might also like to sponsor one of the charity’s adorable Adoption Stars, either for yourself or as a thoughtful gift for a friend or loved one. A year’s adoption costs just £15!
The visitor centre also offers a schedule of family activities during the school holidays, so if you’re planning a visit be sure to check out Redwings’ website for details of the latest events – www.redwings.org.uk
