This is a wonderful place to take kids for a few hours but the weather is important. There are several walks around the sanctuary some are up hill and others are less strenuous. There a literally hundreds of donkeys here with many different stories; a lot are sad but all of the donkeys are now well cared for and have... More

Whether you are a toddler or granny, a family or a corporate hot-shot, this place is for you. It is one of the most relaxing, feel-good places that I have ever been. It's not sophisticated, don't expect a fancy visitor centre or gift shop. The important people here are the donkeys, this is their refuge, a place that they can... More

The sanctuary is a great place to visit. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The star attractions are obviously the donkeys, some of whom were rescued from appalling conditions, now living in the safe caring hands of the dedicated staff. A great place for all ages and the whole family, from tots to grandparents, will love the hands on... More

A free day out with the kids. The donkeys are used to people and have no problem letting kids spet them. Last time I was there there were several foals that had been born in the sanctuary.

The Donkey Sanctuary is a lovely place, where rescued donkeys come to live in a beautiful setting. There are extensive grounds to walk around & say hello to all the donkeys. There is a beautiful picnic area & a small gift shop, which also sells drinks, confectionary & crisps. There is no charge to come in & visit, they rely... More

The Donkey Sanctuary is a real gem of a place for families with children to visit. There is a lovely vibe about the place. It is what it is, a sanctuary for donkeys. There is a lovely grass walk about the paddocks where you can view and interact with the donkeys and take in some lovely vistas of the surrounding... More

This is a beautiful place for those donkeys either abandoned or given to the sanctuary, the donkeys are well looked after and you are able to donate to the sanctuary or adopt a donkey well worth the visit if you love animals
