Sign up below to be notified as soon Pennywell opens.


To help keep you safe we have limited the number of tickets on sale each day and split them into either 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. 

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.


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! The bouncy castles in Noah's Barn are great fun. 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! 

Our Coffee Cabin and Noahs Barn takeaway are both open with rustic baguettes, local pasties, great coffee, cakes, ice creams and a delicious locally sourced "eat out to help out" menu available Mon-Wed. 

What isn't available for now - Piggy cuddles (although stroking our piglets is available), Pets corner, Go-carts, Henny Penny's Cafe 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.

Good doesn’t do the place or people justice, we’ve had an amazing time. There is so much to do, it was really clean and well organised and we felt safe and had plenty of space. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, I’m so glad we came.
