We are currently unable to offer the Canal walks, sorry, but you can book a Dinky Donkey Walk across beautiful farmland with scenic views, or if you have limited mobility, you can have fun with the Dinks playing behavioural games. 

What to expect on your mini donkey canal walk?
What your Good Day Out entails

In celebration of Visit Wales’ Year of the Sea, you can join us for a special canal-side experience this summer, taking our pair of mini donkeys for a walk along a very scenic part of the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal towpath at Pencelli, and stopping for tea, coffee & tasty cakes at The Royal Oak before heading back. This is a gentle way to experience the landscape and wildlife along the canal, and is a unique day out that has been created in partnership with Glandŵr Cymru, Canal & River Trust in Wales.

What is a Mini Donkey?

Good Day Out has a pair of Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys called Maverick & Goose who love going for a walk. The breed originated in Sardinia and is much-loved for their sweet nature and dinky size. 

A Stroll along the Canal

The walk starts at Cambrian Cruisers, and it is an easy gentle walk for about an hour along the towpath to arrive at The Royal Oak, where the Dinkies are welcome in their beer garden and local cakes with soft drinks are provided (included in the experience), and after a rest, you will walk back the same way, taking in the tranquillity of the Brecon Beacons countryside.

As the towpath is narrow in places, this experience only allows for children over 12 to lead with an additional rope held by an adult. The walk is most suited to a maximum of 4 sharing the leading, but additional walkers can come along at a reduced rate. Please contact us for group bookings or with any queries, and if you would like to enquire about other dates not shown on the calendar.

You can also buy this experience day as a gift voucher so the recipient can choose their own date.
