Thank you for visiting the award-winning Mike's Donkeys. Our healthy, happy donkeys are cherished members of our family and have brought happiness to thousands of people.
We are proud to be the UK's number one provider of donkeys for all manner of occasions, from fetes to tv work, weddings to corporate events, theatre appearances to parties. In 2015 alone we worked for the BBC, Amazon, ITV, Entertainment One, Renault, Esther Rantzen and The National Trust, to name just a few.
In addition to the above, we have extensive experience providing specially-trained donkeys for care home visits, special needs schools and educational days.
DISTANCE IS NO OBJECT. Our donkeys travel in specially adapted boxes and trailers, in which they are free to move around, eat and drink. They are closely monitored and are very happy travellers.
Please take a look around our website to see how we can help bring you a touch of donkey magic - whatever your requirements.
Donkeys for Hire
Bring something different to your fayre, fete or fundraising or give your corporate event the edge by offering traditional donkey rides. We also cater for weddings and children's parties and provide donkeys for Film, TV and Theatre work.
Delight children and adults alike with our cuddly donkeys, dressed in their Santa hats, tinsel and bells. They can provide rides, pull a sleigh and are more than willing to help switch on the town Christmas lights. They are also classic contributors to Easter celebrations.
Our donkeys are wonderfully gentle and appreciative of all the attention they receive, making them perfectly suited for visits to Special Needs establishments, Care Homes and Schools. The joy they bring is plain to see and the therapeutic value immeasurable.

From time to time we have donkeys for sale - pets, companion animals or workers. Good, caring homes are a prerequisite and we do our utmost to make sure the donkeys suit the requirements of the purchaser. No quibble guarantee - we will gladly take them back if you decide they are not suitable.
