Accessibility and facilities

Pennywell welcomes all visitors! We have made every effort to make sure that all areas of the farm are accessible to all but if for any reason you encounter any problems during your visit, there are plenty of team in distinctive bright red tops, who will be happy to help you. 
We are a rural location and a working farm attraction. We have wild animals that affect the natural habitat here and we do all we can to mitigate any risk by carefully managing our site. A great example is wild rabbits who leave holes in grass areas throughout the year. We check these often and fill them up but would ask you to wear sensible footwear when visiting the farm and listen to our team and follow on site guidance. Some areas of the farm will have signage to advise 'no running' and our activity leaders will remind you of this also during some activities. This is not to spoil the fun but as we want to ensure you can enjoy the day safely without injury!



Situated a mile from the town of Buckfastleigh in South Devon, Pennywell Farm is a multi-award winning farm park; the biggest in the South West. 
All the farm buildings, animal enclosures, activities, shows and displays are all on a level site. The average length of stay is approx. 4 hours.
There is a new activity, show or display every half hour which is supervised and led by a member of the Pennywell team. The attraction is very hands on and visitors are encouraged to touch and interact with the animals as much as possible. Hand washing is adjacent to all the areas where animals are handled and touched. 
Voice boxes are located around the site.
We have several food outlets and gift shop all with step free access.
We have a team of friendly team who are here to help. They all wear distinctive bright red tops and are spread around the site.
