What they say

Something for everyone...even 17 lasses on a hen-do !! Trip Advisor Review

We had a fantastic action filled day at The BIG Sheep and saw some very bizarre things, from cool mountain boarding to racing sheep! - BBC Blue Peter

Age 8-57 had a fab time! One of the best theme parks we have ever been to - Loads to do! Lots of fun animals shows - made us laugh!

I haven't experienced the "nothing is too much trouble" from staff this much outside of Disneyworld. Trip Advisor Review

Baa-rilliant day out! They promise you that The Big Sheep is the highlight of any trip to North Devon and they're not wrong. TripAdvisor Review
