Overview

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.

A very friendly place to visit for all the family, get close to many rare breed to various animals you'll probably not see elsewhere, what we enjoyed the most was the interaction allowing to touch and pet so many different species

A wonderful couple of hours. You get to be up close with many of the animals and you certainly make a lot of new furry friends if you're carrying a bag of feed. There's not many places where you are encourage to touch and feed...More

Fun place for all the family. A little bit pricey but overall good fun. If you have young children I would strongly recommend it.

Hello, we are purely animal based and so do not have a play park, so while we hope your child will love the animals, it may be a bit easier to persuade them to leave :) We hope to see you soon.
