The Donkey Sanctuary, Slade House Farm, Sidmouth, EX10 0NU.

Do you know which adoption donkey has the loudest bray, who is the most playful and who has the largest ears? We have scored the adoption donkeys against nine different donkey stats and the aim of the game is to find out who trumps whom in each head-to-head round. 

Just follow the trail to find the giant Top Trumps cards located around the sanctuary and reveal which adoption donkey comes out on top in each round. Once you have all the winners from all nine rounds, head to the Gift Shop to collect your prize and certificate. 

This entertaining family activity combines fun, exercise and brainpower and is just £3.50 per trail, including a prize and certificate on completion. 

Plus with tours and talks, scenic walks, engaging exhibits, award-winning gardens and, of course, hundreds of adorable donkeys to meet, there’s so much to explore with your own herd, whatever the weather. Take an interactive journey through the global work of The Donkey Sanctuary in our Exhibition Barn, discover all things donkey in the Understanding Donkeys Zone, take a walk in the woods or lose yourself in the maze. 

Take sanctuary in our Taste of the West award-winning restaurant, The Kitchen, and enjoy fresh, local, seasonal produce while soaking in the unparalleled coast and country views. Breakfasts, lunches and tempting afternoon treats are dished up daily as well as Brunch on Sundays, with every penny of profit helping donkeys and mules around the world. 

Before heading home, browse our Gift Shop at leisure in the knowledge that every purchase goes towards helping donkeys in need. Packed with unique donkey-design items and souvenirs, you will find something for everyone. 

From humble beginnings as a UK rescue mission 50 years ago, The Donkey Sanctuary has grown into one of the world’s largest equine welfare charities. 

Entry and parking at the sanctuary is FREE (donations welcome). Dogs on leads are welcome.
