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

Treat yourself or loved ones to some donkey time with this memorable donkey experience, which allows you four-hours of exclusive access to our resident donkeys – something that is just not available to the everyday visitor.

You will get to meet many donkeys up close, where you will spend time grooming them and mucking out their stables before enjoying tea and cake at The Kitchen restaurant and an in-depth guided tour of the farm. 

This is a hands-on and insightful experience working closely with our knowledgeable staff to learn all about our lovable residents and the charity's worldwide work. It is a group experience, where you will be participating with other donkey lovers.

  • Enjoy a mid-morning break of tea and cake at The Kitchen restaurant.
  • An in-depth guided tour of the farm, including areas closed to the public.


£120 per person, including tea and cake at The Kitchen restaurant. All proceeds help fund the work of The Donkey Sanctuary worldwide.
