Donkey Sanctuary

The Donkey Sanctuary currently has an incredible 6,300 donkeys in their care worldwide. Why not meet some of the 500 in Sidmouth waiting to see you. Set along the historic Jurassic Coast and nestled in the tranquil East Devon countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, their working farm is home to donkeys, mules and hinnies, large and small. Can you find the gentle giant Poitou donkeys, gorgeous adoption donkeys or spot a miniature in one of the fields?

Their donkeys love to meet new people and you can discover their unique characters and stories. You can even enjoy giving a scratch behind the ears to one of the Main Yard donkeys.

Admission and parking is free (donations welcome) and we are open 365 days a year.
