Donkey experience day at The Donkey Sanctuary, Sidmouth
More information

Love donkeys? Go behind the scenes at The Donkey Sanctuary!

This unique experience allows you to get hands-on with the donkeys, experience meeting and caring for them, and enjoy a mid-morning treat of tea and cake (included) in the fantastic new restaurant, The Kitchen.

There will be grooming and plenty of time for cuddles, a chance to feed and exercise the donkeys, the glamorous but most important task of mucking out their stables and an in depth guided tour of the farm. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime to experience working closely with the sanctuary’s friendly donkeys and learn all about them from knowledgeable staff.

All Things Donkey runs from 9am – 1pm, leaving plenty of time afterwards to explore the rest of the sanctuary or have lunch at the on-site restaurant.
