  • The attraction is aimed at young kids so we just parked up and saw the donkeys in the field with lambs and llamas and it was breathtaking to see. The donkeys are so well treated.

  • 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.
