An Easter Twist at The Donkey Sanctuary

From 1 – 16 April, The Donkey Sanctuary will be giving their Spring Wildlife Hunt an Easter twist!

By following clues from their trail sheet, people will be able to discover wildlife boards around the sanctuary and match them up with the stickers provided. Trail sheets cost £5 each and include a prize on completion, which over the Easter holidays is a chocolate Easter Egg.

On selected dates across the Easter holidays, visitors will also be able to join a free guided Spring Family Walk with one of the charity’s conservation team, and find out more about the wildlife that shares the sanctuary with the resident donkeys.

The Donkey Sanctuary is free to visit and parking is free. Set in the heart of the East Devon countryside, overlooking the world-famous Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site there are miles of walkways to explore. The sanctuary is also dog-friendly, and dogs on leads are welcome.

There are of course hundreds of adorable donkeys to meet, as well as daily talks, engaging exhibits, scenic walks, a new children’s playpark and a maze to explore, while the Gift Shop is the ideal place to pick up a souvenir, safe in the knowledge that every purchase supports the work of the charity.


When it’s time for a break The Kitchen restaurant is the perfect place to take sanctuary. The award-winning restaurant has an extensive menu, using fresh, local seasonal produce, with unparalleled views of the Weston valley and the sparkling sea beyond.

The Donkey Sanctuary is open every day from 9am – 5pm.
