Slade House Farm, Sidmouth, EX10 0NU.

Feed your curiosity and discover all things adorable with a donkey adventure like no other. Simply find the A-Z of fun donkey facts around the sanctuary and complete the trail activities as you go to claim a prize and sticker on completion.

The adventure is split into two parts – one short trail and one a little longer. For the first part, locate eight donkey facts around the main sanctuary and find the hidden letters to complete the missing word.

Why let the fun stop there? For the super inquisitive and serious explorers among you, follow the trail around the sanctuary’s wider walkways to complete the second part of the adventure (optional), finding 18 more hidden letters to complete the missing phrase.

This entertaining activity combines family fun, exercise and brainpower and is just £5 per trail, including the prize and sticker on completion. Head to the Gift Shop to pick up a trail sheet and away you go on your adventure.

Plus with daily 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 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 served daily, 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.

Make the day your own, but above all else, fall in love with our herds of donkeys.

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