About

All the Fun of the Farm

A visit to multi award winning Pennywell Farm is packed full of animals, activities, shows and displays. It’s the biggest activity farm in the South West and there’s something new happening every hour, just listen for the bell.

See for yourself why Pennywell has been awarded Best Visitor Attraction in the Devon Tourism Awards for the 2nd consecutive year! Your visit begins with a warm welcome in the main farmyard where you can have a look at the activity board to see what’s going on. Take a snap on your smartphone to make sure you don’t miss a single thing! Then you can join in with fabulous farm activities like goat milking, ferret racing, deer feeding, egg collecting and much, much more.

Home to the world famous Pennywell Miniature pigs, we promise that you will never have experienced anything quite like the phenomenon that is Pennywell pig racing. Come and cheer on your favourite porker in this truly unique event.

Hundreds of friendly farm animals, equines and pets are waiting to meet you. You’ll find alpacas, goats and goat kids, lambs, and highland cattle as you explore the farm. If you like equines, you’ll love Pennywell as we have everything from mighty heavy horses to miniature ponies, plus a family of miniature donkeys who just love attention from the visitors. Connery, a retired horse from the Household Cavalry enjoys a chat as you go by and there are plenty of pretty ponies.

Say, “Hello, Halo, Merhaba or Bonjour” to our international collection of poultry in the Funky Fowl area of the farm and meet Guinea pigs, ducklings, rabbits and tortoises in the pet’s area.

Pond dipping is always popular so take a net and discover the wonderful wildlife that lives beneath or you can wander down to the tranquil fishponds to feed the fish.

Farmyard rides are brought to you, courtesy of tractor power. All ages will enjoy the Tractor and Trailer ride or you could bounce around the track on the Red Rocket ride (6+ to adult) which we guarantee will leave you with a smile on your face. Challenge your friends on the Run Rabbit Go Carts (8+ to adult) or take a more leisurely ride on the Rainbow Railway which is great fun for all the family.

Budding young farmers can test their driving skills in the Pennywell Tractor Village and toddlers have their very own play village to explore. If there is any excess energy left to burn there are plenty of trampolines dotted around the farm, Crazy Golf and for the really energic there is an assault course which is great for mums and dads too! The fantastic news is that all this is included in the admission price. 

Plenty of coffee and snack stops as well as light meals, cakes, ice creams and delicious Devon cream teas ensure that there is something for everyone. 

The beautiful South Hams countryside offers the perfect backdrop for your farm visit with views reaching out over the Dart Valley and on to Dartmoor.

Pennywell is just 3 miles off the A38, just 20 miles from Exeter and Plymouth and just 12 miles from Torbay. Easy to find, just follow the brown tourist signs.
