What you'll do

You'll be greeted personally by us and we'll take you over to meet the donkeys and introduce you to them and their individual personalities. There'll be an introduction on how to walk your donkey to maximise enjoyment for both you and the donkey and then off you go.

Your walk will be accompanied by me and I'll be delighted to share mini donkey facts and stories with you. You'll have plenty of opportunity to stroke the donkeys, take photos and ask questions during your walk. You can stop to greet the miniature pigs, Teddy Bear lambs, alpacas, ducks and chickens as you go and you'll usually encounter several wild brer rabbits along the way.

At the end of the walk we head back to the stable for a ginger nut biscuit (for the donkeys!), a well earned rest and a hand wash.

Length of walk is around 30 minutes depending on the speed of the donkeys on the day.

You're welcome to look around and see the other miniature animals while you're here.

You have to be 9 years old or older to walk the donkeys. (Younger children aren't able to accompany the donkeys on their walk.)
Other things to note
Wear sensible shoes and be steady on your feet to take part in this experience. Children under 9 will not be able to accompany the walk I'm afraid. They can spend time in the little play area while you're walking the donkeys.

We are a husband (Bill Neal) and wife (Belinda) team who founded Huckleberry Woods micro animal adventures. We enjoy sharing unique experiences with other animal lovers. We set out to develop a different type of animal encounter - peaceful and personal for both animals and visitors, in a low tech and back to nature type of environment.
We've had our miniature donkeys since they were weaned and have brought them up to be as friendly and as gentle as donkeys can be. We've personally harness trained all our miniature animals so guests can get close and experience something really unique. We've been running Huckleberry Woods micro animal adventures for two years and in that time have earned the coveted Trip Advisor certificate of excellence.

We had a great time on our donkey walk! Belinda was really lovely and welcoming and made sure we had a wonderful time. All of the animals are so cute and very well cared for. Would definitely visit again - maybe next time to walk the pigs!
