Salcombe Regis is a small village about two miles from Sidmouth and sixteen from Exeter, picturesquely seated in the Sid Valley and sheltered by boldly swelling hills, which terminate in the lofty red sandstone sea cliffs. Its parish is bounded on two sides by the sea and the River Sid. The church (St Peter and St Mary) is a fine Norman structure, with a tower and three bells, but has undergone many repairs and alterations. There was anciently a chapel in the parish, dedicated to St Clement and Mary Magdalen.

The Donkey Sanctuary, home to around 400 donkeys, is set in unspoilt farmland and countryside. Visitors return time and time again to meander among the donkeys and absorb the serene and relaxed surroundings. The Donkey Sanctuary is open 365 days a year from 9am until dusk. Admission is free. At The Donkey Sanctuary, we strongly believe that supporters have the right to see how their donations are spent on caring for our large family of donkeys. Our main headquarters and intake centre at Slade House Farm is therefore open to the public. There are no commercial attractions - just gently rolling countryside with walks around the fields where you can meet the dear donkeys, who adore the fuss and attention received from visitors. Donkeys of all ages reside at Slade House Farm, but a large percentage are elderly and remain here in order to be close to the veterinary department.
Situated at the heart of The Donkey Sanctuary, the Hayloft Restaurant is the perfect place to reflect on your visit. This former barn for donkeys has been beautifully renovated into a rustic and relaxing restaurant and has windows overlooking the donkeys in Main Yard. You are invited to enjoy fresh coffee with a delicious slice of cake or a delicious Devon cream tea. You can also enjoy a light snack or perhaps lunch, prepared on site each day using fresh and local ingredients, between 11.30 to 2.30pm daily (times vary during the summer months). The Hayloft Restaurant is open seven days a week with seasonal opening times:   
spring and summer from 10.30am to 5pm;     
autumn and winter from 11am to 3.30pm.
