What a superb day out-Pennywell farm is a real gem in this beautiful part of Dartmoor and South Hams. The activities are well executed with superb staff whose helpfulness and courtesy makes a real difference. We spent several hours and had plenty to do. Refreshments and facilities were good and the overall value for money is unsurpassable.
I suggest twin this with a visit to nearby Buckfast Abbey with its 1000 years of monastic history and superbly refurbished church and you will have a great day out.

I visited pennywells on the 25/06/2018 with my 9yr old daughter and her grandparents. It has to be one of the best days out we've ever had. It's excellent value for money with different activities and rides running throughout the day. The farm is very clean with great hand-wash facilities stationed close to all the animal handling areas. The animals are all obviously well cared and cuddling the tiny pigs made my daughters holiday however the thing that stood out most to me were how incredibly friendly and knowledgeable all the staff were especially Alisha and Izzy. Thank you for making our day so special.

We love Pennywell Farm. The animals are friendly and love being handled. The highlight is the piggy cuddles!
Plenty to do here we can easily spend all day!
Gift shop and cafe both affordable.

We enjoyed the visit and my partner got to cuddle baby pigs and feed lots of animals. But for us we were done within a couple of hours. There are more activities that are child based so the value will come from that.

Lovely place.

Hi James, thank you for the lovely review. The secret is to just forget you are grown up and join in with the activities - you're never too old. Pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit.

Great for a family day out with younger children. Contact with small animals, farm rides, pig racing, ferret racing. All good stuff.

The tractor ride is rather poor. Takes you down a field to plastic cows and animals.

The catering is poor. Sausage and chips, run out of pasties, poor sandwiches. Slow. Just not up to the job.

Hi Geoff

We're very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the farm.

We have put some Highland Cattle down in the field to enhance the visitor experience. They have calves and it is a real shame if you missed seeing them. We will remind all the tractor drivers to stop and point them out so thank you for your comments.
