To help keep you safe we have limited the number of tickets on sale each day and split them into morning and afternoon time slots to spread visitors throughout the day.
ALL visitors, including season ticket holders, will need to book their tickets online in advance. 
 In preparation for re-opening, we have reviewed how we operate every single part of the farm to ensure you can visit safely. As you'd expect, a visit to Pennywell will feel a little different but everything we are introducing is with your safety and our team's safety, as our top priority.



Below is a summary of what we are doing to keep you safe but you can READ FULL DETAILS on the new safety measure in place HERE

-Personal Protective Equipment - You may see some of the Pennywell team in Personal Protective Equipment for some of their tasks. This includes face masks, gloves and eye and face protection. Please feel free to bring your own if you'd like too!


What to expect 

As you'd expect, a visit to Pennywell will feel a little different but everything we are introducing is with your safety and our team's safety, as our top priority.

Whether you choose a morning or afternoon session to visit, you will experience the same Pennywell award-winning fun!

What is available – You’ll experience a Pennywell welcome in the farmyard and the train, tractor ride and red rocket will all be running during your session (you will ride with members of your household/group). Activities will include ferret racing, deer feeding and our infamous miniature pig race! You’ll be able to explore the whole farm and see all of your favourite animals. From the mighty heavy horses, Duke and Duchess, to our world-famous miniature pigs, they can’t wait to welcome you again! Our brand-new miniature pony and donkey paddocks will also be open, complete with a spectacular picnic and viewing area overlooking Dartmoor. With limited numbers on-site, there will be plenty of space for everyone!

What isn't available for now - Bouncy castles, Piggy cuddles, Pets corner, Go-carts, Henny Penny's Cafe (snack and drinks are available from takeaway outlets) and a number of activities will not be running to keep both our visitors and team safe by avoiding people gathering in groups in one area.
