Join us at the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary for Easter fun on the farm.

Our free to visit sanctuary is nestled in 55 acres of picturesque Isle of Wight countryside and is home to over 100 much loved donkeys and Shetland ponies. We're open 7 days a week, with free parking, families and dogs welcome and walking paths on and around the farm. We're a great place to visit to celebrate the arrival of spring - this year you may even spot some very cute lambs!

This Easter you can take part in a fun Easter Trail to take you around the farm - there's a small prize at the end when you've completed the trail.
