Animal Shelter
“The Donkey Sanctuary is home to around 400 donkeys, all loving a bit of fuss and attention. It is set in unspoilt farmland and countryside.  It is very popular with locals and visitors to relax in the peaceful surroundings. . Admission and parking are free. A great way to see a working farm, and meet the animals that live there ”

“This is a seafront pub, decent amount of seating outside, the secret bit is that it does really, really good pizzas, in a wood fired oven. Can get them as a take away as well, and sit and munch away on Sidmouth Beach.”
