Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: 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 full day of fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

We spend a whole day here playing on the soft play, pirate ship, and watching ferret racing. Then when time to leave, we realised we'd missed out the whole museum area (with huge tractors).

“Half day visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Liked the collection of antique vehicles, including motor bikes.
The old world village street with shops and a pub was good.
Lots of areas for children to play and lots of outdoor pens with goats, pigs and ducks. There were times when these could be fed.
There is also an excellent collection of birds of prey with daily displays of them working.
Also the best part of the trip for me was the little train which takes you into the deer park where you are given food to feed the deer and llamas. They shove their heads into the train carriages and feed out of your hands.
Nothing to dislike about this place.
