Redwings Ada Cole is home to around 70 horses, ponies and donkeys. Visitors can enjoy walking tours and horse care demonstrations, followed by hot drinks and tasty bakes. You can put your feet up with a warm cuppa in the Nosebag Café while there’s a play area for young children to explore and an on-site gift shop offering a wide range of souvenirs.
Redwings Ada Cole is fully accessible to wheelchairs and group visits are catered for. There is also an outdoor children's play area for younger visitors to enjoy.
While visiting the Ada Cole centre, you might like to support the work of Redwings by adopting one of their friendly residents, either for yourself or as a thoughtful gift for a friend or loved one. A year's membership to the Redwings Adoption Club costs just £15!
Redwings Ada Cole's Adoption Stars include the very handsome Gelderlander Zippy, cheeky donkey Del Boy and lovely little Shetland mare Tinkerbell, not forgetting our newest star, Elvis, the rock n roll pony! Another recent and most welcome addition to Ada Cole is Tucker, an adorable miniature Shetland foal, who, at just four hands high, is indisputably Redwings' tiniest resident!
Entry and parking are free, and dogs on leads are welcome!
