Brockenhurst Donkey Walks

Situated just one mile from Brockenhurst Village in the heart of the New Forest you will find our four donkeys waiting to meet you ready for your donkey walking experience

About Us

Big Ears, Warm Hearts


We are tucked away in the forest with no roads to cross just gravel tracks, heath land and ancient woodland to meander.  Whilst walking you should see the forest ponies grazing in their natural habitat.  In this wonderful setting we would love to share our passion for donkeys with you.


Whatever the time of day and whatever the season the forest is a special place to spend time. Donkeys are quiet comforting animals to be around.  They are good listeners – hence the big ears!  So if life is stressful and you want to unwind then a walk and a chat with a donkey will bring a smile to your face and they will never tell your secrets. 


Adults and children alike love donkeys and there is a lot to be gained by getting to know these big eared big hearted creatures. Donkey visits can be tailored to suit the individual it is our intention to keep your visit relaxed.

Mr Macgregor

We like to listen to your requests and accommodate wherever possible.  Some people like to spend time brushing or just getting to know their donkeys whilst others want to get walking to enjoy the forest in the company of their donkey.  We just want you to enjoy your experience.
