Reviewed 2 May 2018 via mobile

We only stayed here for a short time due to the weather being bad. However we really enjoyed seeing the lovely donkeys and ponies. My children were excited to stroke them. Would recommend for a couple of hours. It's great work that's being done here and lovely to see the animals cared for and happy.

Affectionate animals and lots to see. The staff are knowledgeable and happy to help answer any questions you have.

Quite rustic, not as modern as the sidmouth donkey sanctuary but has a rustic real charm about it.

Highly recommended. The place oozes with care and love for the animals. You will find it difficult to come away without sponsoring a donkey for a nominal £2 month.

Such a brilliant place, full of donkeys and people that love donkeys! Completely dog friendly, they are allowed in all outside and inside spaces. Thank you for being so welcoming

A really lovely way to pass a couple of hours. The staff are very helpful and the place seems to be very professionally run. The donkeys themselves are beautiful of course. No entrance fee so happy to leave a donation. Would happily return for another visit.
