If you are planning on going to The Big Sheep make sure you check opening times as these can vary and at different times of the year not everything is open. They also have a timetable with different times of the activities that are going on through the day. So make sure you find out the times of things so you don't miss anything.
We have been to the big sheep so many times I remember going when I was younger and now I'm taking my daughters there. Over the years it has developed loads and has many more activities for you to do. There is plenty for you to do in and outdoors so you won't be bored. Some of the outdoor activities are a fun park, you can have a tractor ride around the area, laser game which is quite new this is where you run round a course ducking and diving, and you have only got so many lives when you get shot then your games up. I have to admit this created many hours of entertainment for my family. They also have sheep racing which is great they put little cuddly toys on the back of the sheep's back and everyone bets on a sheep they want to win. They let the sheep go and they race around. Its great fun as everyone is cheering them on. There are also duck trials and dog trials. Or you can just walk around and look at the animals and i'm sure there is more that I have missed out.
Indoors there is also lot's to do there's a big soft play centre which they have called ewetopia this is great fun. There are plenty of slides, climbing frames, ball palls and much more. You will probably find it hard convincing your child it is time to go as they will be having so much fun. There are also lots of facilities where you can get a drink or something to eat. There is a shop that you can buy toys, fleeces and mugs etc so you can remember your great day out. Inside you can do pottery, watch sheep sheering. There is also a barn with lots of baby animals in for example lambs, rabbit's guinea pigs and lots more.
In the different seasons they do themed events which are great we went at Easter time. They hid lots of small mini eggs and when you had found a certain amount you could exchange them for a bigger egg. My girls loved doing this and I'm sure we will be going there again next year. This is also the time to go as there will be lots of baby animals around.
Overall I would say this is a great family day out there's lots to do and it is for all ages. We go every year and there always seems to be something new every time we go. Make sure when yo
