  • Had a wonderful afternoon visiting the donkey sanctuary. You take it at your own pace and can either just pet the donkeys or buy tokens to feed them (which they love). There is an area where small children can brush pigmey goats which seemed lovely. There is more than just donkeys and goats too. You can visit the pigs, chickens, mules, horses, ponies and llamas too. Would definitely recommend.
  • Fantastic place, love the new self paced tour. They have more than just donkeys, a couple of mules, a pony, some llamas pigs and goats. Baby donkeys, elderly donkeys. The volunteers are all great, and really care for the animals
  • Very nice place to go, with family or for a youth group the staff there are really helpfully and friendly, there no entry free as well. And you can feed the animals while you are their ( which is fun but the donkey can be greedy)
  • Beautiful, well looked after animals. Staff were friendly and helpful
  • Better than expected!!! They do a great job caring for these animals. Donkeys, goats, horses, pigs and chickens.
