With Feb Half Term & Easter Hols not far off, I've been looking for cheap things to do with the kids, whilst searching I came across The Donkey Sanctuary based at Sidmouth in Devon which I did know about, but I didn't realise that they also had other centres around the UK & in Europe.

Entry is FREE to all (though donations are welcome), the main site at Sidmouth has over 500 donkeys, is open 365 days per year, has farm trails that are bike friendly, a maze & outdoor playcentre, woods, nature centre & dogs are welcome on leads.

They have other sites with completely Free entry (donations welcome) in Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Derbyshire, Ivybridge, Belfast, Ireland, Spain & Italy

Next open day for Derbyshire is 7th May.

Cold! This place only has donkeys, don't be fooled by the name.

HOT. Wish there was one near me. Sounds like a really nice outing for children.

If you're heading for the Brum one you can make a day of it as it's situated within Sutton Park where there are adventures a plenty to be had: streams; walks; lakes; woods; wild cattle; wild horses; playgrounds; swans; ducks; woods; bridges; trains; brambles a plenty; trees to climb; sailing club; fishing; cycle routes/descents; model aeroplane flying area; golf course and lesiure centre adjoining...

There are also several eateries WITHIN the park: Town Gate Cafe; Blackroot Bistro; Toby Carvery; Miller & Carter Steak House...

Enjoy

I've been to the one in Leeds it's a great day out. Highly recommended.

What an absolute muppet!

Didn't even know there was a donkey sanctuary in Belfast! Sounds fab

Fabulous, I'm all for a free day out and love that you're spreading the word of the Donkey Sanctuary... heat for the fact you'll hopefully get them a few extra donations by those who visit. I'll be donating when we take our children to Birmingham (By the way I didn't even realise there was a Donkey Sanctuary in Birmingham!) Thanks!

with your username you had to post this, thanks did not know there was a donkey sanctuary in Manchester.Have some heat my friend.

^^^^^ this
Plus- I wish-I-had-one:D

If anyone's thinking of going to the Derbyshire one, note this:

Our Derbyshire Centre is open once a month from April - September only.


Next open day is 7th May (the April one is cancelled).

Great

Do they have wonky donkeys?

I got married at the Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth it's a lovely place, if I didn't live so far away I would be there all the time. You can also sponsor a donkey, we had our adopted donkeys as our special guests at our wedding

Not many people are aware of that though & I certainly did not know that they have other centres

We have been to the Sidmouth one. It's lovely! They do great ice creams, too.

Didn't know about the others so thank you, OP.
