Fantastic and Informative Tour
Sep 2021
The most enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. We went along in time for the guided tour and learnt so much about these wonderful animals. Each of them had a story, many of them heartbreaking. Plenty opportunities to get up close to the donkeys for strokes and cuddles too.
Great to see such good work being done to rescue and rehabilitate these gorgeous creatures. Amazing owner and staff and a really friendly atmosphere. Great little cafe too. I highly recommend it if you're in the area you'll not be disappointed.

Plant Based/Vegan food?
Aug 2021
Lovely place to visit and Donkeys well looked after but i was disappointed with the cafe options as no plant based/vegan options at all. As this is a sanctuary i would expect there to be due respect towards other/all animals yet the menu is sorely lacking in any plant based options.

Please add them to your menu! I think it's a shame you would regard an abused donkey with such regard but fail to recognise that the animals you serve on your menus are also abused in a similar fashion for food - you can help towards a kinder world with a better menu (please also include dairy free ice creams as cows are also abused for milk).

Loved the tour and the history and quirks of each donkey, they were so informative it was all nice and clean, no dirty stables, what's not to like.

Lovely Donkeys
Jan 2020 • Family
We took our 2 grandsons aged 3+4 and they loved it. It was interesting to hear how and why the donkeys ended up at the sanctuary and they loved feeding the little goats. Well worth a visit for a good cause.

Lovely Time.....
Feb 2020 • Family
We spent a couple of hours here with a guide to tell us about the history of how the donkeys came to be at the sanctuary.
The place itself is so warm and welcoming with a lovely looking cafe, we didn't use the facilities, and the stables outside are in great shape and kept very clean...
The animals are just so nice and friendly considering what they've been through.
All of us had a very enjoyable time here and look forward to our next v7sit when the weather warms up a little.

Donkey's birthday
Jan 2020
Lovely day out despite the weather, first time visit and it was one of the donkey's birthday so a suitable birthday cake was brought out for him as a treat. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and took care to make sure the children could associate with the donkeys'. Good car parking and a very nice cafe, plenty of room between tables and well presented food. Other animals included miniature ponies and mountain goats

Brilliant place
Jan 2020
Calm and welcoming place. Spent time with the animals, learning about their histories and the lady showing us round was excellent. She gave lots of information and ensured everyone had the opportunity to pet the animals and ask questions. Great little cafe too. Will return and can recommend

Great Day Out
Jan 2020 • Family
I visited here with my two young children and have to say it was an amazing experience. Not only did we get a guided tour but we got to interact a great deal with some of the rescued donkeys. The staff were both friendly and helpful and our tour guide was brilliant. At only £6 an adult and £4 a child with all proceeds going to the charity it's well worth the money. There is also a small cafe and a charity shop on sight along with a souvenir cart full of little mementoes to purchase.

Birthday Treat
Jan 2020 • Family
I visited the Wonky Donkey sanctuary with my daughter as a birthday treat and we spent a wonderful couple of hours there.

We were showed around the visitor centre and spent a lot of time in the stables, stroking and petting the donkeys. The visit was really informative and we learned about each of them and their very often sad stories.

It is a great place to visit and they do such a fabulous job with such care and passion.

We even adopted a donkey which my daughter was so excited about!!
