  • Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the animals. At the beginning the tour was fantastic but felt a little rushed towards the end, despite there still being lots of time left. Donation is £3 per person for the tour, and I was amazed to see some people not paying it. You'd struggle to get a day out for 3 quid that will keep the little ones entertained for hours. There is 1 tour per day and it leaves at 1400. Dogs are allowed to come with you but must be kept on the leash.
  • Awesome place doing awesome work to take care of retired donkeys, love visiting 👍
  • Great place... The kids loved it. The donkeys were cute and friendly and the tour was a lot of fun. I didn't plan to when we got there, but by the time we left, we just had to adopt a donkey.
