About The Donkey Sanctuary

A beautiful farm runs over almost 134 acres, including 10 acres of woodland, and is perched on top of a hill 805 feet above sea level, looking out over the beautiful valley of Farway which is home to almost 300 donkeys and mules. The donkeys on the farm are some of the youngest and fittest in the sanctuary, as the fields leading down to the valley are very steep.
