Welcome! Thank you for visiting our website.
Take a tour of our new, still-developing website – and then do come and visit us in person. Our horses, donkeys and other animals would love to see you.
The Sanctuary, just outside Ruan Minor on The Lizard peninsula, is open every SUNDAY from 11am until 4pm until the end of October so hurry on down to meet us, as Sunday 30th is our last open day of the year. Entry is free and dogs on leads are welcome.
Take a stroll around the paddocks, meet the animals and enjoy a tasty snack in our popular café. The regular menu includes bacon baps, jacket potatoes, home-baked ham, delicious home-made cakes and Cornish cream teas!
To find the sanctuary, take the A3083 out of Helston towards The Lizard. Stay on The Lizard road for about eight miles, then turn left (signposted Ruan Minor) just past the cider barn and paintball centre, opposite some holiday chalets. You’re almost there – now just follow the yellow Bolenowe signs.
You can read all about our work elsewhere on this website. We do hope that you will feel moved to help with the cost of the ceaseless work of giving a decent new life to such vulnerable and often unwanted creatures. Various ways that you can donate are also on this site – our sincere Thank You for any donation you may make.
Now enjoy your website tour – and see you soon, we hope!
