Donkey Sanctuary

The Sanctuary was established in 1987 to provide a safe, permanent home for any donkey in distress or otherwise in need of care and attention. I just love this place, apart from a lot of sad looking donkeys in some fields there's not much else to see, but the donkeys are so lovely and friendly - even though they look melancholic and depressed - and they just love to have their ears and backs scratched. They make this extraordinary "Hee-Haw" noise that guarantees to bring a smile on your face. When the donkeys are hungry they will try to eat anything, Lomo cameras included, if only they could reach them.

Entry to the Sanctuary is free but you’d have a heart of stone if you didn’t put some money in the collection box to contribute towards the care and upkeep of these charming creatures. Anytime I get a visitor it’s pretty much a certainty that the Donkey Sanctuary will be on the itinerary of one of the ‘must see’ places near by, and of course it’s a great place for shooting Lomos.

Open from April to September
10:30 – 4:30 seven days a week
