Overview

Devon's multi-award-winning all-weather day out for the whole family! You can ride on the deer train or take a goat for a walk! Get up close to the animals in the pet centre or burn off some energy in one of the three different soft play areas, Pirate Ship Adventure or outdoor adventure playground. There's also a museum of farming and an indoor Victorian Street, featuring a dairy, cottage & pub! The vintage & classic car collection features vehicles that have appeared in Downton Abbey, Mr Selfridge & Parade's End. Then there's the steam engines and Reg Imray motorcycle collection. To top it all off there are daily ferret, lamb or duck racing shows and the excellent Hawkridge Bird of Prey flying display. Refuel at Farmer Lee's Food Barn restaurant or grab some local food to go from the Pasty Shack! With so much to see, come rain or shine, can you do it all in a day?!

A fairly standard farming experience. There's plenty for kids to do. Easy to walk to from Devon Cliffs. You can spend all day here but if the weather is a bit duff i'm not sure its a great idea.

Visited on a damp day. Lots to see and do. My daughters loved it. Especially the tractor ride to see the animals. The indoor pirate ship play area was also a favourite.

We popped in here to kill an hour or so and ended up being a full afternoon. Very good site and lots on offer. Perfect to entertain the kids.

We go here often and the children love it. There are so many play places, animals and other things to see that you can spend the whole day here. Some fantastic memories are made here. Checking out the big slide is a must.

Hi there. We have a carers go free policy so you, as your husband's carer, would get free entry. Anything like your pip letter or blue badge is ok. I hope this helps - see you in September!

Hi there I'm afraid we only allow working assistance dogs in the park as some of our animals are not keen on dogs. I hope you understand. Regards James
