Things To Do In 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. Our park is suitable for family fun for all ages, our Rampage Rollercoaster is great for thrill seekers, little ones will love our animal barn and pets’ corner, and we haven’t forgotten our adult visitors either with our on-site brewery.

In wet weather 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. 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! We genuinely love what we do, so come and enjoy a day out in Devon and let our fantastic flock create some magical memories for you and your family!
