Lee Thompsett, August 2023

Very well accommodated and they have a dog friendly menu too for our four legged family members.

Trish Boyle, August 2023

Large grounds to explore, and lots of donks to see.

Dogs are allowed in the cafe and shop, which is a bonus

Rosie, October 2019

Dogs are clearly welcome here, especially by the donkeys, who wandered up to the paddock fences inquisitively to say hello. One paddock had some Shetland Ponies who were definitely interested in my Shetland Sheepdogs!

There is also a small wildflower meadow attached to the sanctuary which makes a nice stroll with the dogs too.

A particularly touching feature was the Rainbow Bridge flower bed and information board. Something I'm sure dog lovers can identify with.
