We had a great day out here last week on holiday. The staff were friendly and really into what they do. the donkeys wer obviously well looked after and there was a lot to explore. the parking was great and everything was clean and tidy. It is well worth a visit and we will most definately go back.

This is a great place to take the children lots of donkeys and walks. Good cafe and facilities. Free donations are asked for and well worth giving for the good work done here.

This place is truly amazing. It was busy but not over crowed. There was ample parking, there was no litter, I can't fault it.

Maybe we went too late in the day, we strolled round and had a coffee but the shop had just closed so we went back to Sidmouth. We did take some photos and enjoyed looking at the donkeys.

If you love donkeys (or any furry animals) this is the place for you! The donkeys have such little personalities and they like to come over for a cuddle and a tickle. The staff and volunteers are really chatty. We adopted a donkey and was told where it was so we could visit :) A lovely place to wander.
