Donkey Sanctuary

Donkey Sanctuary

Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary
Lower Winston Farm, St Johns Road, Ventnor, PO38 3AA

Opening times: from Easter to October each year from 10.30am till 4.30pm weather permitting. There is no charge for admission.

This wonderful charity has been caring for donkeys in need since 1987. Some of them used to work at Carisbrooke Castle and have now retired. Others have been at the Sanctuary since they were tiny. All of them are now in ‘donkey heaven’, being pampered by the dedicated staff, in their picturesque setting.

It’s lovely to see all the donkeys in their fields – so do pop by to say hello. You might fall in love, and want to take them all home with you. But a more practical alternative might be to adopt a donkey. You’ll get a certificate of adoption, a colour picture, and a regular newsletter. Altogether now: aahhhhhh!
