After relaxing in the restaurant, unwind by exploring scenic farm trails home to hundreds of friendly donkeys just waiting to meet you. For added family fun, discover which donkeys are best buddies and see if you can spot them playing together, with the Best Friends Forever Trail. Trail sheets are available from the new Visitor Centre or Gift Shop for just £3, including a prize on completion.

There is also the exciting new indoor attractions to discover including Visitor Centre, Understanding Donkeys Zone and Dr Svendsen’s Hut as well as the Nature Centre and Maze.

Plenty of opportunities to exercise after all the lovely food!

Looking for a special gift for mum?

Why not give the gift of a friend for life by adopting one of the sanctuary's fun-loving adoption donkeys. From clever and mischievous, Ruby on Main Yard to sweet and fluffy, Zena in Shelter 4, there is an adoption donkey for every mum this Mother’s Day. Join one of the Meet the Groom sessions held every morning or afternoon to find out more about each of the adoption donkeys.

Want your gift in time for Mother’s Day? Adopt a donkey before your visit and allow mum time to get to know her new friend before getting to meet them at the sanctuary.
