About us

A visit to multi award winning Pennywell Farm is something you’ll never forget! Make memories that last a lifetime as you enjoy a fun filled experience packed full of animals, hands-on activities, rides, play-time, shows and displays. It’s the biggest activity farm in the South West with a different activity happening every 30 minutes, just listen for the bell! Pennywell is home to over 150 animals and has something for everyone, from pig racing to tractor rides! 

 

“This was the best day EVER! The experience with the animals was amazing” - Erica.T, 2021

 

“What a wonderful farm! The animals are so well looked after. Brilliant activities so well organized. All the staff were friendly and helpful. It was super clean too!” - Caroline.T, 2021

 

“What a fantastic place. We have been coming here while on holiday in Devon for many years. Children have loved it and now grandchildren too. There's so much to do and once you pay to get in, everything is included” - Lynn.C, 2021

 

“Best farm we’ve been to. So much to see and do and we got to cuddle a miniature baby pig. What more could you ask for?! Would certainly go back if we were in the area again!” - Caz.B, 2021

 

Your experience begins with a very warm welcome in the main farmyard where you will be guided through our activity board. We recommend you take a snap of the board on your phone so you know what is happening, wherever you are on the farm! Once the activities begin you can join in as much as you’d like! Get involved with milking and walking our goats, cheering on our racing ferrets, hand-feeding our herd of Red Deer, collecting eggs from our laying hens and so much more! We promise that you will have never experienced anything quite like the phenomenon that is Pennywell Pig Racing. This truly unique event is fantastic fun for all the family! Come and cheer on your favourite porker in this Snout to Snout race! 

Pennywell Farm is the original breeder and home of the world famous Pennywell Miniature pig. If you haven’t cuddled a pig before then Piggy Cuddles is for you! Available anytime throughout your entire visit, this is something you just have to experience! Our pet cuddles area will also give you a chance to meet and hold some of our other beautiful pets including rabbits, Guinea pigs, chicks and more! 

Hundreds of friendly animals are waiting to meet you! From our magnificent and mighty heavy horses Duke and Duchess, to the teeny-tiny mice and everything in between! Explore the farm and meet our highland cattle, lambs and goat kids, Pennywell Miniature pigs, alpacas, tortoises, ducks and geese, the list goes on! Grab a net and dip at the Pennywell ponds to discover the wonderful wildlife that lives beneath the surface. Or, wander into some of our paddocks with our miniature ponies and family of miniature donkeys who just love attention from our visitors! Roam through the Goatarama and hand-feed the cheeky goats you might find there.

Farmyard rides are brought to you, courtesy of tractor power. Enjoy a visit to Old MacDonald’s Farm on the Tractor and Trailer Ride, suitable for all the family - who will you spot on route? Anyone over the age of 4 will enjoy blasting off from the showfield on our Red Rocket ride, guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face. Challenge your friends to a race on the Run Rabbit Go Carts (8+ to adult) or, why not take a more leisurely ride on the Rainbow Railway which all the family will enjoy! 

Let the kids bounce out any excess energy on the trampolines dotted around the farm as well as the HUGE bouncy castles and inflatable slide inside Noah’s Barn. Shoot a winning score on our Crazy Golf course, see how low you can go! Let your budding young farmers test their driving skills in the Pennywell Tractor Village and, if you’re feeling energetic, have a go on our assault course (great for fun-loving adults) too! Around the farm you will find sit-on diggers, sandpits, play equipment and slides as well as a dedicated play village for toddlers to explore. 

Don’t go hungry! We have plenty of coffee and takeaway food and drink stops spread out across the farm. Enjoy a delicious Devonshire cream tea, gorgeous ice cream that is produced just down the road from the farm, as well as yummy stone baked pizzas from our brand new Noah’s Takeaway, open for you this season!

The beautiful Devon countryside offers the perfect backdrop for your farm visit with views reaching out over the Dart Valley and up to Dartmoor. You won’t believe how stunning the Devon scenery is from 650 feet above sea level! 

Pennywell is just 3 miles off the A38, just 20 miles from Exeter and Plymouth and just 12 miles from Torbay. We are easy to find! Just follow the brown tourist signs. 

We can’t wait to see you soon!
