About us

Looking for an enchanting and magical experience? Join us from Saturday 4th May to Sunday 2nd June for a spectacular, unicorn-themed event at Pennywell Farm.

In addition to all your favourite animals, activities, shows, and displays, we'll be offering a host of special unicorn-themed experiences to help unleash your inner unicorn. Meet Merlin, our resident unicorn for the week, take part in Unicorn Hobby Horse racing, and discover fascinating unicorn facts and figures on our Unicorn Farm Trail.

But that's not all. With hands-on activities every 30 minutes you're in for a full day of fun!

Bottle-feed our baby goat kids, cheer on our racing ferrets, hand-feed animals from the cheeky goats of Goatarama to our beautiful herd of Red Deer, and even take a naughty goat for a walk!

Of course, no visit to Pennywell Farm would be complete without experiencing our famous pig racing, held every day at 12:30 pm. This truly unique event is fantastic fun for all the family so come and cheer on your favourite porker in this Snout to Snout race!

And with plenty of piglets and goat kids to cuddle, there's no shortage of furry friends to make your visit truly unforgettable.

Each weekend and everyday during the Half-Term week, in addition to spending time with all the wonderful Pennywell animals, you'll be treated to a variety of live entertainment, featuring performances by Matt Pang, Elfic the Jester, Spangles the Clown, and Mr. Phil.

The fun of the day just doesn't stop!

Jump on 3 FREE farm rides available throughout the day along with play areas, assault courses, mazes, and more on every corner.

With all this farmyard fun on top of Magical Unicorn Extras, there is so much fun to be had!
