“Just great!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

Obviously, donkeys or animals have to be an interest. Brilliant staff. Patient, knowledgeable and informative. Good facilities, plenty of parking. Very understanding to the needs of the disabled as we took my 85 year old mother.

A nice half day outing that could be extended with a walk down to the beach. Good food too. Loads of donkey's and an interesting maze!

“Donkey Paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Very well run and superb conditions for donkeys. Obviously well supported, judging from the donations boards. A good place for local youngsters to get work experience. If only other charities and businesses were run this well.
