I love the Donkey Sanctuary. It's a great place to take kids. I love how the donkeys are all rescued, all given the best of care, and are in great conditions, and that they don't breed them or anything. I wish there were more sanctuaries around to visit.

This place is a piece of paradise for these fantastic donkeys. I cannot wait to go back and adopt one. They are so well cared for and friendly. One of them kept braying at me and I rubbed her loads and when I stopped she was back braying again. Was hard to walk away then! There was babies there also... More

I love their temperament, these donkeys act like they are on holiday. They’re so funny, friendly and sweet, they love to have you scratch their ears and kiss their noses. They are well kept and the area is clean and a true pleasure, be sure to buy something from the gift shop as they don't charge to visit but these... More

Nice walk round on a sunny day. The children enjoyed the summer treasure hunt and patting the donkeys.

What a fabulous place. The donkies look so happy and healthy. The little shop is lovely, the lady behind the counter friendly and welcoming. The place is so clean and tidy. Love the plaques and benches in memory of people. There's a great little picnic area too. A lovely walk around all the paddocks. They do so much good work... More
