Treat your family to a full day of family fun and animal action at Pennywell Farm. With a different activity, show or display every half hour, hundreds of friendly animals and four FREE rides, you won’t waste a single minute.

Bottle feed baby animals, race ferrets, meet hedgehogs, explore ponds and enjoy fantastic entertainers every day during the Devon school holidays. You can even cuddle one of the world famous Pennywell Miniature piglets or groom and pamper our very sociable pint sized ponies. Pennywell Pig Racing is a must and we guarantee you won’t have experienced anything quite like it.

There is plenty of indoor space to play and picnic and if it rains during your visit we will give you a FREE return ticket. The Red Rocket, Tractor and Trailer ride, Run Rabbit Go Carts and Rainbow Railway are all included in the admission price – great fun, fantastic value!

Pennywell has the friendliest animals in Devon and the 2020 season will have more animals to meet than ever before with our new and improved Miniature Pony Centre. We’re expanding the number of equines on the farm this year so you can get really hands on with not just our miniature ponies but miniature donkeys, heavy horses and our latest addition, Connery who has retired to Pennywell after a career in the Household Cavalry.
