Donkey experience day at The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, Devon
More information

Go behind the scenes and get up close and personal with the resident donkeys at The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, Devon.

This unique experience allows you to get hands-on with the sanctuary’s friendly donkeys, experience meeting and caring for them, and enjoy a mid-morning treat of tea and cake in The Kitchen restaurant.

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 lovable residents and learn all about them from the sanctuary’s knowledgeable staff.

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


The All Things Donkey Experience is a fully immersive group experience that costs £100 per person, including tea and cake from the restaurant.

Pre-booking is essential and spaces are limited. For further information and to book, please call 01395 573156 or email [email protected]. Gift vouchers are also available.

VIP experiences

If a group experience isn’t your thing, they offer a two hour one-to-one session with the donkeys for the cost of £80. Available Monday-Friday, with a start time between 9am-11am.
