Fun afternoon with the dinkey donkeys. Julia was really friendly, the donkeys behaved despite some damp weather and we managed a brief pic between showers. Highly recommended

This was such a wonderful experience that my Husband and I did in October 2021. We had to reschedule from earlier in the year due to lockdown and Julia was very responsive and friendly on email. We arrived on time and met Julia who is exceptionally friendly and welcoming and met Goose and Maverick the donkeys who are so loved and cared for. Sometimes you worry about whether the animals are genuinely cared for and loved, or whether they are there to make the owner money (well, I do) and it was obvious from just seeing their very plush surroundings that they are very well loved family members who just enjoy walking with people and getting cuddled and brushed. We had a fabulous walk, a very lovely and tasty picnic and learnt all kinds of interesting do key facts. Don't forget your wellies as it can get very muddy and print out the instructions just in case you get lost. We did have reception for most of our car journey there, but it does get a bit sketchy in places. We both absolutely loved walking with the donkeys and would love to visit again when we are in the area.

What a lovely couple of hours we had yesterday (Oct 1st) with Goose and Maverick, a nice stroll and chat with Julia talking all things donkey! Thankfully it was a brilliant sunshine day sandwiched either side of two really stormy days, a lovely little picnic stop with amazing views and lots of donkey fusses, they were so gentle and friendly, and very photogenic! A very memorable afternoon.

Thanks Ash, lovely review & kind words. Love from the Dinks - hugely wet now so we were amazingly lucky with the weather & fab views of Pen y Fan & the Brecon Beacons. Hope to see you all again soon - promise to talk about non-donkey-related things too! Kind regards, Julia - Good Day Out

This was a fantastic experience and I would recommend it to friends. The donkeys, Maverick & Goose, were gentle and clearly happy to be around people. It was so much fun spending time with them, they're so naughty! Animal welfare is very important to us and I'm glad to say these animals were very well looked after. The walk itself was through lovely woodland, so peaceful and relaxing. The view at the halfway point (during the picnic) was a classic Brecon Beacons vista; got some great photos! The host Julia was friendly, had loads of interesting facts about Maverick/Goose and clearly cared for them so much. Thanks for having us!

Thanks Matt - so pleased you mentioned animal welfare as all our Good Day Out experiences are based on what the animals enjoy doing and are good for their daily lives and general enrichment & behavioural needs. Was lovely to meet you both and excellent you had already joined one of our Piggy Walks!!! Look forward to enticing you back again for another animal encounter again soon Kind regards, Julia
