And mums and dads can get involved in the indoor playground or choose to relax with a well earned coffee from The Barn Cafe. There’s also a smaller indoor playground for under 5’s so they can play safely. Bad weatherproof fun guaranteed at The BIG Sheep.

As well as a fun day out for the whole family, The BIG Sheep is a working farm and so throughout the year there are often cute and cuddly baby animals being born. Take shelter from the bad weather in our barn and come and see our animals up close, you might even get the chance to have a cuddle. Plus, when our lambs are born, we need help feeding them in the morning and evening, could you help?

When looking for things to do in North Devon, visiting a working farm will give you a taste of Devon life.
