Our Donkeys

Jack and Sean

Jack and Sean are two geldings that were relinquished to the Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth in 2008.  We were very lucky to have the opportunity to join the foster scheme in 2010 to give Jacks and Sean a new home.

Jack, is a fawn/brown colour and Sean a lighter cream/grey; they settled in very well and soon got to know their surroundings. We have a number of different paddocks for them to roam in when the weather is fine, and a large covered yard area with access to their stables when the weather is not so good.  Donkeys are generally affectionate, good-natured and stoical animals and very different characters to horses.  They are the most wonderful pets, friendly and curious and willing to learn.  Jack and Sean love meeting our guests or talk to anyone who is passing!

We have a pathway along the side of the main paddock so our guests can meet the boys.

You can stroll along the many walks around the main site that are wheelchair and pushchair friendly or longer more challenging walks across the hills and down to coast at Sidmouth.  There is a restaurant on site or picnic areas if you prefer to bring your own food.

There are lots of activities for children and events on all year round; It really is a perfect day out!
