On the Jurassic Coast in Devon, have dinner with 200 rescued donkeys.
THE VIEW FROM AN AWARD-WINNING RESTAURANT OVERLOOKS MORE THAN 200 DONKEYS AT THEIR RESCUE CENTER.
The Kitchen is near to The Donkey Sanctuary, a Sidmouth-based charity that cares for rehomed donkeys on the Jurassic Coast. This south west Devon hidden treasure is about 14 miles from Exeter and is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Visitors can eat a full English breakfast, a jacket potato, or a The Kitchen burger while watching the donkeys in the paddocks and taking in the views of the ancient coastline.
Kids can also buy a ‘Donkey Bag’ packed lunch style meal to snack on, keeping with the theme of their four-legged neighbors.
The animal centre is free to visit if you want to get up up and personal with the donkeys. Its goal is to educate people and raise revenue for their rescue operations.
The sanctuary cares for a variety of donkey varieties, especially those that are elderly and unloved, ranging from huge Poitou donkeys to charming miniatures.
“More than simply wonderfully long ears, soft furry noses, and lovely characters; donkeys matter,” a representative for The Donkey Sanctuary said. Donkeys are used by entire communities all throughout the world. Discover why they are so unique through interesting and engaging exhibits that will forever transform your perspective on donkeys.
“Visit the Understanding Donkeys Zone to learn about the responsibilities of caring for the local herd.
“In the Exhibition Barn, learn about donkeys through the ages and climb aboard a real mobile unit to examine the gear used to offer veterinary care to donkeys in remote locations.”
Newlyweds are planning a trip in Snowdonia to raise money for a dog charity.
The sanctuary is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with free parking and leashed pets allowed.
