Interesting and fun for all ages if you like goats, chickens, hedgehogs, and owls. My husband, aged 60, loves it!!
Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff who will be pleased to take time to chat and explain. Lots of the volunteer staff come from local 'assisted living' venues: excellent therapy. Great to see this community involvement. The 'rescue centre' is interesting.
Good cafe serves value food, with plenty of space to sit, and you can watch the trains on the Buckfast Steam Railway.
Excellent idea to buy a combined ticket for the train and farm - good value.
Nearest car park is Totnes train station (arrive before 11am to be sure of getting a place in peak season/at weekends) - involves a 10-15 minute stroll along footpath, over River Dart and along steam station platform and over level crossing.
You can buy animal feed - excellent for children, and for 60-year old men!! Guess who managed to let the goats out - and then had fun helping to round them up!!
Health and safety is taken very seriously, and there's a serious animal protection ethic too.
The owls are awe-inspiring and we could spend all day admiring them.
Do visit - enough said!
