Big car park, lovely coffee & gift shop, loads of useful information boards, clean and well kept. With special thanks to the very helpful staff member who took us around and, without any sense of rush, explained so much. Thank you
Visiting the IOW Donkey Sanctuary is a very pleasant way to spend some time, even on a cold January morning. They have a large herd of obviously well-cared-for donkeys. It was very cold so they were indoors - but we could still get up close...More

Beautiful, well looked after donkeys, who appeared content. The animals have lots of space to move around, including inside and outside areas. Couldn’t believe how friendly most of them were, coming over to you instantly, wanting affection.
Staff in the cafe were friendly and welcoming,...More
My aunty died at almost 90 and she had supported the isle of Wight donkey sanctuary since it began well over 40 yrs ago.

You will probably be shown round (we were as a group) the tour took about an hour but it was wet so most of this time was spent inside the buildings. I believe that there is a small shop which I did not go into, you can probably get refreshments there. With your grandchildren you will need at least 2 to 3 hours. I’m sure the children will have a great time and take home lots of happy memories.
