  • Everyone here was exceptionally friendly! It’s run with the help of many volunteers and they all took the time to introduce us to the donkeys in their sections. We went during one of their “Christmas days” and they even had hot apple cider and desserts for the guests, which I was very appreciative of since my hands were frozen. It was a very educational place, too. The donkeys were so sweet and peaceful. I love this place!
  • I couldn’t believe such an amazing place was literally at my doorstep! The Donkey Sanctuary was more than I expected. Beautiful grounds for picnics before you get to the stars of the show. Be able to walk amongst the absolutely tame donkeys was a thrill for my grandkids and me. The 6 year olds loved it and to my delight the 10 year old did too. She admitted “Nanny this is so much fun. I didn’t expect this”. It was a great experience for the kids to brush the donkeys and give love and attention. Walking around the sanctuary to see all the residents and hear their stories from wonderful volunteers was a bonus. We will make the Donkeys part of our summer from now on.
