Halloween activity trail at The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, Devon
More information

Can you make it through our haunted hay bales before dark? Don’t get too spooked too soon!

To make it through, explore the sanctuary and find all the Neddies’ secret hiding spots to collect a stamp for each Halloween Neddy and win a prize at the end…

Our Halloween Neddies* are back just in time for our new activity trail. Combine family fun, exercise and brainpower for just £5 per trail, including a prize when you complete the trail. Head to the Gift Shop to pick up a trail sheet and you’re ready to take on the haunted hay bales.

Plus with a new play area, daily talks, scenic walks, engaging exhibits, award-winning gardens and, of course, hundreds of adorable donkeys to meet, there’s so much to explore with your own herd, whatever the weather. Friendly dogs on leads are welcome too!

Take sanctuary in our Taste of the West award-winning restaurant, The Kitchen, and enjoy fresh, local, seasonal produce while soaking in the unparalleled coast and country views. Breakfasts, lunches and tempting afternoon treats are dished up daily, with every penny of profit helping donkeys and mules around the world.

Before heading home, browse our Gift Shop at leisure in the knowledge that every purchase goes towards helping donkeys in need. Packed with unique donkey-design items and souvenirs, you will find something for everyone.

Make the day your own, but above all else, fall in love with our herds of donkeys.

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.

General admission and parking at the sanctuary are FREE (donations welcome). Dogs on leads are welcome.
