Gruffts – Oct Half Term at Pennywell

Goat kids, Gruffts

This October Half Term (19-27 October), Pennywell is proud to be bringing you Gruffts 2019.

Best in breed, best goat kid, most agile, least obedient – you get to vote the winners every afternoon as Pennywell hosts Gruffts, the world’s greatest goat show!

Sponsored by ‘Goat Compare’ and now in it’s second year, Gruffts is where you can meet all our fabulous breeds of goats and see them put through their paces on the agility course, join in our goat treasure trail and take your own Pennywell goat for a walk. Just watch the video to see how well trained they are!

There are plenty of goat kids to cuddle and bottle feed, plus an action packed day with hundreds of friendly animals to meet, a different hands on activity or show every half hour and four farm rides included in the admission price. Pig racing will be every afternoon at 2.30pm and is definitely not be missed!

Bringing their own unique styles of music, magic and all round entertainment to our Big Shows are Mr Phil, Poco Drom and gentleman juggler, Matt Pang.  Join them in the theatre at 1pm and 3pm.

There is plenty to do undercover. What could be better than snuggling up in our cosy pets area and piggy cuddles barn. Duke and Duchess, our heavy horses are among some very special new additions to the farm including a family of adorable miniature donkeys.

It all adds up to a great day, whatever the weather but even if it rains, don’t panic as we will give you a FREE wet weather return ticket to come and see us again.

Treat your family to a full day of Pennywell Fun this half term. The Pennywell team promise you a full day of hands on animal fun – guaranteed! BOOK TICKETS

      Hi Denise
      I’m sorry but we do close on 27 Oct. We plan everything at least a year in advance and take guidance from Devon County school holiday dates. We realise that academies and schools in other areas have that second week but with the majority of Devon schools in term time it simply isn’t viable for us to stay open.
