Devon's GOLD 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?!

Four of us 'Seniors' (one aged 99) visited on an overcast blustery day. We rather thought it would be more suitable for children than us, however we were pleasantly surprised by the variety and amount of attractions in the park. We enjoyed seeing the birds and animals, particularly watching the children being walked by goats, and also the vintage cars... More

Brilliant day out. So many things for kids to do - plenty of indoor places to play if the weather is poor. Lots of outdoor activities too. Climbing frames and slides, along with lots of animals. Even the chance to take a baby goat for a walk - good fun. There is also an area with a display of different... More

I visited with my sister, who is a wheelchair user, although she can walk short distances. If you look hard on the accessibility section of the website, it tells you that essential carers have free access, but this was not offered to us until I asked about it. The website also says that there is a map available of suggested... More

Thank you so much for your feedback, this is really useful. Apologies for not having the accessibility maps available at reception. We do have them so this would have been a training issue. Thank you again for highlighting and I'll make sure everyone is aware of the maps and where they are. I will also ensure that our "carers go... More

very interesting but more suited to children. The displays of cars and other farming related vehicles very interesting if you like that sort of thing. Plenty of play equipment for children and good for a fine day which it was the day I went.

Visited on a Monday in July with two young grandchildren children under 4 years old. Was shocked at how expensive it was and when we entered the park I soon realised that half of the attractions were not open or not available. The kids really wanted to see the sheep racing but this was not open and the train was... More

Thank you for your feedback and really sorry you feel this way. We feel our admission price is extremely reasonable for what is included in the visit. All our attractions were open on Monday but some of the events do run at specific times. Each day we have either ferret, lamb or duck racing at 2pm - the day you... More

We visited last September when staying at Devon Cliffs. Our little boy is Pirate mad so the huge Pirate ship to play on was a huge plus. Lots to do and see and would definitely visit again when we holiday in Devon next.
