Things To Do In North Devon

If you’re searching for things to do in Devon, then you’ve come to right place. The BIG Sheep is North Devon’s best all-weather family attraction day out. Our theme park is suitable for all ages of family fun and is perfect for rainy days out! Our Ewetopia Indoor Playground is a great way to tire the kids for a few hours while you enjoy a cup of tea in the warmth of one of our cafés, little ones will love our selection of toddler rides and attractions open throughout the year whilst big kids (and little kids!) will enjoy our Rampage Rollercoaster during the summer season as well as Battlefield Live where combat comes to life!

From January to October you can come and feed the animals in our indoor animal barn, and our adult visitors will love our on-site brewery and gin distillery. This really is a great place to visit in North Devon! During the summer season from Easter until October we run daily live shows including the world-famous Sheep Racing, place your bets and see if your woolly friend comes in first earning you a place in our winner’s circle! Our friendly and helpful flock genuinely love what they do, so come and enjoy a day out in Devon and let us create some magical memories for you and your family!
