Donkey Sanctuary

There is a Donkey Sanctuary at Slade House Farm, which is about three miles west of “Baldash Cottage”.  On the A3052 road towards Sidmouth, look for the signed turning to the left, just before the turning to Salcombe Regis.

The Donkey Sanctuary is a UK based charity working worldwide to improve conditions for donkeys and mules.  There are no commercial attractions at Slade House Farm - just gently rolling countryside with walks around the fields where you can meet the donkeys, who adore the fuss and attention received from visitors.  Admission and parking are FREE.  The Sanctuary is open 365 days a year from 9:00 a.m to dusk.  For the hungry, try “The Hayloft”, which is an on-site licenced restaurant offering a range of hot and cold meals, snacks and drinks.  Being a charity, of course, The Donkey Sanctuary greatly appreciates donations from visitors.
