Treat Mum to a unique day out and enjoy lots of family fun at The Donkey Sanctuary this Mother’s Day.
Let Mum unwind at The Donkey Sanctuary this Mother’s Day with mile upon mile of tranquil coast and country walks, breath-taking views and plenty of donkey cuddles. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty along the stunning Jurassic Coast, the Sanctuary enjoys some of the best views in the South West and is home to over 500 donkeys, mules and hinnies who can’t wait to meet you!
Mum can relax with the Hayloft Restaurant serving delicious, home cooked meals throughout the day; from hearty breakfasts to a traditional Sunday lunch, and indulgent creams teas. Vegetarian options and children’s portions are also available.
Kids will be kept entertained by the Donkey Detectives hunt and can burn off steam in the maze and farm-themed play area. The Sanctuary also has a Nature Centre, where you can learn about the wild side of the Sanctuary and play ‘Betty the Bat’ games on the Bat Beacon touch screen.
Give Mum a truly unique gift of a friend for life by letting her choose a donkey to adopt. From clever and mischievous Ruby on Main Yard to sweet and fluffy Zena in Shelter 4, there are so many donkeys to fall in love with at the Sanctuary. You can find out more about the Sanctuary’s adoption donkeys by attending free Meet the Groom sessions which run every morning and afternoon.
The Donkey Sanctuary Sidmouth is open seven days a week from 9.30am until 4pm (winter opening hours). Admission and parking is free. The charity holds events and open days throughout the year and all proceeds go towards its work in the community and worldwide.
