About
Looking for a fantastic day out? This family-owned attraction is small enough to provide a friendly and personal service, with enough to keep visitors happy all day.What sets Totnes Rare Breeds apart is the opportunity to be within hugging range of all the animals. Most enclosures can be entered for close-up stroking, patting and cuddling. The Garden Café (outside the farm) offers made-to order dishes at reasonable prices, from indulgent snacks to tasty meals.

We visited when the bird flu was active so a number of pens were empty but this was reflected in the price! Our children (4 and 7) really enjoyed the day.

So many rare breeds. I didn’t think you could see so many rare breeds in the UK. I needed a helmet, cos my mind was blown!

Right by the steam railway which we used to get there to make a great day out. Yes it’s small but not busy so really get lots of time with all the animals and can go in with the goats to feed them which my son loved.

Staff are all really friendly. As it’s the off season the cafe staff do fun the park entrance too which does cause delays but that is the only negative. Would defiantly recommend

My daughter loved it. The animals were very cute and friendly. Some were very cheeky.

Was very clean and well laid out.

Came on the steam railway here, arrived at the cafe and ordered a Cornish pasty and 2 cheese and ham panini’s. Half an hour later went in to ask where our food was, they said they were just heating it up! Ten minutes later a young girl came out and said ‘did you order food’ no apology or anything. We told them to cancel it as we needed to go round the farm before our return train. They then said that they were very busy ( they did not seem to be, certainly over half the tables were empty) and after huffing about not being able to do the refund found someone who could! Went round the farm which is sweet, but no signs telling you where to pay. Went back into the cafe at the end to ask where to pay for farm entrance and the girl at the counter was very rude saying we should have paid here if there was no one around the farm!
Seriously need to manage better and teach the young staff some manners and client service.
Unlikely to return.

Visited on Monday. Got the train to Totnes and was a very short , easy walk down to the farm, crossing the river and the steam railway tracks. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Felt very much welcomed and at ease. The children loved meeting all the animals and asking lots of questions. Learnt so much about owls and also Guinean pigs! Nice cafe and fantastic cake. Lots of hand washing facilities around. Only slight downside was that there only seemed to be 2 portaloos, but maybe we just never found the proper toilets! Will definitely visit again.

Fab little farm with unusual and interesting animals; you are able to interact, hold and feed the animals with lots of hand washing around. Jess in the petting area was great. Bit tricky to find if your not familiar with the area. Great for adults and children with reasonable entry price. You can go on the steam train but that works out much more expensive.

A perfect day out for our 9 year old granddaughter and her favourite repeat trip. A great hands on experience whereby children can enter a lot of the pens and feed the animals and even hold some of them. The staff are lovely and patient with my ever questioning granddaughter and are happy to chat about the animals. Sam remembered our granddaughter even though we hadn’t been since before lockdown, as did Pete the wonderful owl man who gave us the history of every bird. Good COVID precautions - lots of sanitiser stations and a spotlessly clean hot water and soap area at the end. Children can sponsor an animal of their choice for which they receive info through the year and a card on their birthday. We’ll be back soon. Thanks Sam and the team.
