The Donkey Sanctuary
Slade House Farm

Adventures! Embark on a special donkey quest to uncover the golden treasure hidden away in the heart of the sanctuary. This summer, follow the map to each spot for a chance to collect each of the orange carrots. But watch out for wrong answers, because they might lead you to a not-so-pleasant surprise! Find as many as you can before collecting a golden carrot to be redeemed for a prize.

On your quest to find the treasure, you’ll get to meet some of the hundreds of friendly donkeys who are cared for at the sanctuary, including the gentle giant Poitous, the lovable adoption donkeys and the adorable minis.

Combine family fun, exercise and brainpower for just £5 per trail, including a prize when you complete the trail. Head to the Gift Shop or The Shed to pick up a trail sheet and you’re ready to explore the sanctuary for those carrots!

Plus with a new bat beacon interactive exhibition, natural play area, daily talks, scenic walks, engaging displays, award-winning gardens and, of course, hundreds of adorable donkeys to meet, there’s so much to explore with your own herd, whatever the weather. Friendly dogs on leads are welcome too!
