What a superb day out-Pennywell farm is a real gem in this beautiful part of Dartmoor and South Hams. The activities are well executed with superb staff whose helpfulness and courtesy makes a real difference. We spent several hours and had plenty to do. Refreshments and facilities were good and the overall value for money is unsurpassable.
I suggest twin this with a visit to nearby Buckfast Abbey with its 1000 years of monastic history and superbly refurbished church and you will have a great day out.
Pennywell is excited to be open and we cannot wait to see you!
To help keep you safe we have limited the number of tickets on sale each day.
ALL visitors, including season ticket holders, will need to book their tickets online in advance.

Hundreds of friendly farm animals, equines and pets are waiting to meet you. You’ll find alpacas, goats and goat kids, lambs, and highland cattle as you explore the farm. If you like equines, you’ll love Pennywell. We have everything from mighty heavy horses to miniature ponies, plus a family of miniature donkeys who just love attention from the visitors. Connery, a retired horse from the Household Cavalry enjoys a chat as you go by. Meet plenty of pretty ponies in their special home.
Say, “Hello, Halo, Merhaba or Bonjour” to our international collection of poultry in the Funky Fowl area of the farm. Guinea pigs, ducklings, rabbits and tortoises await you in the pet’s area.
Pond dipping is always popular so take a net and discover the wonderful wildlife that lives beneath. You can also wander down to the tranquil fishponds to feed the fish.
Farmyard rides are brought to you, courtesy of tractor power. All ages will enjoy the Tractor and Trailer ride or you could bounce around the track on the Red Rocket ride (6+ to adult) which we guarantee will leave you with a smile on your face. Challenge your friends on the Run Rabbit Go Carts (8+ to adult) or take a more leisurely ride on the Rainbow Railway. Great fun for all the family.
Budding young farmers can test their driving skills in the Pennywell Tractor Village and toddlers have their very own play village to explore. If there is any excess energy left to burn there are plenty of trampolines dotted around the farm, Crazy Golf and for the really energic there is an assault course which is great for mums and dads too! The fantastic news is that all this is included in the admission price.
Plenty of coffee and snack stops as well as light meals, cakes, ice creams and delicious Devon cream teas ensure that there is something for everyone.
The beautiful South Hams countryside offers the perfect backdrop for your farm visit with views reaching out over the Dart Valley and on to Dartmoor.
