Reviewed 6 June 2014

Well worth a trip......, anything that's free normally is. The attraction is basic, just fields full of rescued donkeys, but that is a plus point. 50p gets you a bucket if carrots to feed the donkeys. Spent a nice, relaxing hour petting and feeding the donkeys. Great for young kids.

I first came across this organisation some years ago when they were based on the outskirts of Nottinghamshire and I was on the Co-Op board and I used to look at applications for the Community Dividend Fund to which I was glad to go and hand over a Horse Box. I lost touch with them as time goes by and when attending a village funday in our local park in Mansfield Woodhouse, there was a tombola in aid of this charity, so I engaged in talking and found out that they had moved to a lovely setting near to Mablethorpe. I have been to this venue several times now and always made to feel welcomed by all the volenteers. On arrival you buy a bucket of carrots for 50p and away you go to meet some of the most friendliest donkeys you will ever meet, even though some have been very badly treated in the past or abandoned and this where this organisation steps in and picks up the pieces and tries to help these animals. My son who has autism loves going there as he can run about without harming anyone or being in anyones way and feed the donkeys. Today(Easter Sunday) we took our grown up daughter for the 1st time and after Shawn had adopted Billy the Donkey, Sarah read through the book about the life of each donkey and was in tears and decided to adopt her donkey called Jack. We will be back again for the day in October and again we will be there with our bucket of carrots!

Wonderful place to visit. Feed the donkeys, have a coffee, and enjoy. Even better sponsor a donkey! Intend to revisit every time in skeggy.
Nice to have somewhere to go that is a good place to visit and can help rescue donkeys

thoroughly enjoyed the trip to this small Donkey Sanctuary its free to get in but any donations are more than welcome, great for small and big kids, its only small but well run with a café onsite and plenty of carrots to buy to feed the donkeys, people are also able to buy souvenirs and you can also adopt a donkey.
if a visit is on the cards the donkeys love ginger nut biscuits
