A fantastic day out for all the 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. There's also a museum of farming and a Victorian street as well as the vintage car 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 display. Refuel in the fantastic restaurant with locally sourced, home cooked food.

If you're staying at Devon Cliffs resort, this place is ideally situated. A close enough walk to make it if you don't mind the hills. Great value and offers a discount if you bring your flyer. So great start. Staff on entry, helpful and polite directing the age groups on to the relevant activities to start with. Wandering through all... More

We had a brilliant day here with our Toddler even if the rain tried to spoil things. There is a mixture of agricultural machines, transport, steam engines, Reg Imray collection and the victorian street to look at which were all inside. Plus lots of animals, we went on the deer train safari where we got to feed the deer and... More

Visited on Mothers Day and pleasantly informed that Mothers had free entry. Although weather was cold there was enough indoor attractions to take in. The tractor ride through the grounds included a brief talk on the park and a stop to feed the roaming animals. Numerous play areas for the kids and a wander down history with the old vehicles...

Excellent fun for children. We took our six month old and he loved looking at all of the animals. We had a good laugh at the out of date exhibits and the obviously female mannequins dressed as men with drawn on facial hair!
