Plan Your Visit
Donkey Heaven will reopen to the public on 19th March 2022 between 1pm and 4pm. Entry is buy ticket only.
Located at the 80 acre estate – The Holmes, St.Boswells, near Melrose, in The Scottish Borders – the animals fortunate in having been re-homed here, are accommodated in small groups in well-fenced and watered paddocks of permanent pasture, each with a field shelter.
There is a handsome Edwardian stone built stable block consisting of loose boxes, stalls, tack room and washing facilities round a cobbled yard. The estate has an ambience of its own – the beautiful views over the River Tweed and the tree-lined driveways are breathtaking whatever the season of the year.
Along with the donkeys there are ponies, llamas, goats, pigs, sheep, ducks and many breeds of poultry and a mule called Muffin.
There are toilets on site for your convenience and don’t forget to visit the shop before you go for a souvenir gift!
