Dyfi Donkey Wood - Exclusive Visits

This is an exciting and unique donkey experience for all the family; young and old - don't let the kids have all the fun, come and "Stroke a Donkey and Soothe your Soul"

Come and meet the Dyfi Donkeys up close and personal in their own habitat without barriers.
A unique opportunity to wander through our woodland where the donkeys are grazing. Go up to them, give them a stroke, maybe a cuddle, watch them as they go about their everyday activities; grazing, playing tag or having a roll in the dust!

Grooming and information sessions are included in the price


If you take the 2 hour option you can wander across the whole of our site and meet all our donkeys

 You are invited to follow Twister's Trail and explore our water meadow and river bank.

Bring a picnic, find a spot and relax in the woodland, by the stream or down by the river.

This is a hands on experience, but we do have donkey free picnic areas. Sorry no donkey rides on site. Please bring appropriate footwear for hands-on session (no sandals/flipflops). Toilets and hand washing facilities on site.
COVID safety protocols are in place at Dyfi Donkeys - we ask that you follow all relevant measures.
