No trip to Devon is complete without visiting The Donkey Sanctuary.
There’s a tranquil corner of the Jurassic Coast near Sidmouth that hundreds of friendly donkeys call home, and they’re all waiting to meet you.
This free-to-visit, award–wining attraction has something special to offer, whether you’re looking for quality time with the kids, or somewhere calming to kick back with coffee and cake.
Explore everything the sanctuary has to offer, from award-winning gardens and scenic coast path walks, to engaging exhibits and loosing yourself in the maze – all year round, whatever the weather. With activities, tours, talks, events and experiences there’s so much to explore with your own herd; friendly dogs on leads are welcome too!
Take sanctuary in the Taste of the West award-winning restaurant and enjoy fresh, local, seasonal produce while soaking in the unparalleled coast and country views. Or adopt your own donkey in the Gift Shop, where you’ll also find quality donkey design products on every shelf. What’s more, every penny of profit goes towards helping millions of donkeys and mules around the world.
From humble beginnings as a UK rescue mission 50 years ago, The Donkey Sanctuary has grown into one of the world’s largest equine welfare charities.
Open daily from 9am, 365 days a year, admission and parking is free, though donations are welcome to help many more donkeys with troubled pasts live a life of total sanctuary.
