Overview

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?!

Visited here when holidaying at haven next door. Great little farm, so many play areas which are great for all ages of children and good that they are undercover so could visit in the rain. Nice display of steam engines and classic cars. Can't comment...More

Brilliant day out for young and old. Doesn't matter if it's a wet day as some things are under cover.

Plenty to do in the park, enjoyed the animals and loved the museum. Bit of a con to pay an extra £1.50 each for a train ride to feed the lamas etc, when you've already paid to get in and cost us nearly £40 for...More
