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?!

First time we'd found this place, lots of memorabilia of bygone days, both domestic and industrial (traction engines, tractors) plus a collection of old cars and motorbikes. Good demonstration of flying by various birds of prey, which were flown and landed along the audience line, so everyone got a good view. Less impressed with the "pasty shop" - staff were... More

We did nit expect a great deal when we booked the tickets a month ago. However we were pleasantly surprised the dear train was a joy, the little girls loved it. The Star Wars theatre show was stupid but again the girls lived it. Soft play, slides, trampolines, goat feeding, goat walking, pirate ship, jail, so much to do and... More

That was a mistake. I thought this was mainly for children with little to grab the attention of adults. The displays of cars, farm machinery and things from times past are all awesome and got our attention. So did the animals and different birds of prey. Of which we watched displays. Impressive was the children's pirate area. Food at the... More

Love this place!!! Would come everyday if I could. Bring my son here once a week, he loves it. Feeding the pigs, goats and watching Angus dance!! Lots to do rain or shine. Only wish it was open all year round. Great for all the family as lots of seating areas for picnics and good little restaurant selling yummy pastys.

We have just returned from a great day out from the world of country life as I write this, and what a splendid day it was. Although it is on the pricey side (£12.50 for adults,£10.20 for kids) it is well worth it and for an extra £1.50 you get to ride the deer train. The kids loved to explore... More

We visited here on a day when it rained pretty much non stop all day! It bills itself as an all weather attraction and this is certainly true. There is lots to see and the large museum display is all undercover, as are many parts where the animals are. The one thing I would say is that while it was... More

Spent a great day for my sons 8th birthday party. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Everyone loved the deer train and the whole train sang happy birthday to my son. Appy Angus was great with the kids. Recommend the goat walking, animal handling and bottle feeding. Party food was lovely and lots of it. Lots of play areas.
