The Donkey Sanctuary

Place to visit
Where else in the world but animal-mad Britain would you come across such a soft-hearted attraction as the Donkey Sanctuary just outside Sidmouth? Visitors return time and again to wander through fields and fields of donkeys who will live out their days in this serene little Devon haven. In the barn there are pictures and a rundown of the residents, giving their names and a brief summary of their lives with salient facts like who they hang out with and whether they can smell Polo mints in your pocket. There's a lovely restaurant on site and you can even adopt a donkey while you're at the sanctuary. I had to work very hard to extricate my six year old who decided she wanted to live there instead of at home. It's that cute.
