Newest Review: ... farm really encourage you to get involved, and sell bags of animal feed which you can feed to the animals. They allow you to go in the pens with the larger animals such as the fully grown famous 'mimi pigs' and goats! The best part of my visit, and indeed the whole reason my boyfriend and I travelled miles in a boiling hot car, was to see the mini pigs! They are very cute and loveable and ... more

What a fabulous place to take the children for a day out! Staff all very friendly. Plenty to do and see, I highly recommend this attraction for a fun day out. Don't forget to take a camera you will need it,

This farm is an amazing place to take children, and if you are a slightly obsessed pig lover like me, fantastic for adults too. There are many rides and attractions for children, several food and drink options to keep you going, and lots of events going on throughout the day such as feedings and milkings.

Recently on holiday with some friends they suggested that we go to Pennywell for the day and I'm so glad they did, I thought it was an amazing place! Where is it? Pennywell Farm Activity Centre is situated just minutes off the A38 by Buckfastleigh in South Devon making it very accessible from popular holiday destinations. It is clearly signposted via the brown tourism signs and is just 12 miles from Torbay, 20 miles from Plymouth and Exeter and the like so not to far to enjoy a day out. When is it open? It is open 7 days a week from 13th February to 31st October between 10am-5pm and you can easily spend a full day there ... Read the complete review

I visited Pennywell about a year ago while on holiday in Devon, so I don't know if it has changed since then but when I went it was absolutely brilliant. The cost of entry is as follows: Adults £10.50, Children: £8.50, Senior: £8.50. This does seem rather expensive but it is well worth it. If you are an animal lover then you will love Pennywell. We thougt it was just going to be another rubbish little farm with a few animals, but it was so much better than that. If I recall correctly it was a bit difficult to find, but we were using a map, it might be easier with Sat Nav. If you are planning a trip I would recommend wearing sensible ...

Every year we usually go on holiday to Devon and one of the places we always try to visit while in Devon is Pennywell farm. Pennywell Farm is located in South devon just outside Buckfastleigh, when you arrive at the farm you will find a very spacious carpark, even in the summer when the farm is very busy you will find enough space to park the car. You pay for your tickets inside the shop and the first thing you will notice is how friendly the staff are, the children get given name tags and an activity sheet. You can also purchase food for the animals which was 50p a pot the last time we went there. As you come out of the shop you will go ... Read the complete review
