Slade House Farm, Sidmouth, EX10 0NU.

The sanctuary's indoor arena will be packed full of talented local traders selling wonderfully unique items, from beautiful gifts and Christmas crafts to delicious edible treats.

Santa will also pay a special visit to the sanctuary, and taking residence in their Grotto, will provide little ones with a magical Christmas experience to remember (including a small gift).

Winter-warming refreshments will be available at the Fair and from The Kitchen restaurant from 9am - 4pm.

While here, take the opportunity to explore the sanctuary home to hundreds of friendly donkeys just waiting to meet you, including our gentle giant Poitou donkeys, the lovable adoption donkeys and our ever-so cute miniature donkeys. Or escape the elements with our exciting new indoor attractions and discover just why donkeys are so special through fun, interactive displays in the new Exhibition Barn, Understanding Donkeys Zone and Dr Svendsen’s Hut.


£2 per adult, under 12s FREE.

Santa tickets are £4 including a small gift and will be available to purchase each day on a first come, first served basis.
